The role of the Landsort class is minehunting, minesweeping and anti-submarine warfare (ASW). At the same time, it is an excellent offshore patrol vessel.

Proven design
The Landsort design is proven and extensively verified, with operational experience from numerous of MCM operations with live mines and underwater explosives.

The Landsort MCMV is designed to carry any available combat system.

Minehunting and minesweeping combination
The Landsort MCMV is permanently equipped for minehunting and mine-sweeping. A powerful MCM combat system supports both operating modes. Four different types of underwater vehicles are used to detect, identify, classify and neutralise any type of mine.

For minesweeping, the Landsort is equipped with a mechanical sweep, a light magnetic sweep and two types of acoustic sweeps.
 

Extremely accurate manoeuvring. The Landsort MCMV is powered by two independent vertical Voith-Schneider propellers designed specifically to ensure excelent manoeuvrability and low noise signature.
