The Taiwanese navy said that the delivery of two Oliver Hazard Perry-class guided missile frigates from the United States is likely to be delayed.

According to local media reports, the delivery has been postponed until 2016 Tuesday. Taiwan has requested to purchase the two Perry-class frigates, which were previously scheduled to be delivered in 2015 to replace the Navy's two aging Knox-class frigates.

When asked about the report, the Navy said the delivery schedule could be delayed, but did not give specific information on when Taiwan can take delivery of the frigates.

ANKARA — Turkey’s procurement office, in connection with state-controlled military software company Havelsan, has launched efforts to export an indigenous naval combat management system.

Havelsan developed the GENESIS advanced combat management system for the US-built Oliver Hazard Perry (G)-class frigates used by the US Navy and a number of allied countries worldwide.

The company has upgraded Turkish frigates with the GENESIS system. One company official said further upgrades on the system, including a ship data link system and 3-D search radar integration, are underway, scheduled for completion later this year.

“We think that there is a potential [need] for GENESIS from navies across the world that have in their inventories G-class frigates, most notably the US,” one official from Turkish procurement agency SSM said.

Turkey earlier spent efforts to secure deals with Bahrain and Pakistan to outfit their G-class frigates with the GENESIS system but no deal has been formalized. Another potential deal with Egypt failed due to political disputes between Ankara and Cairo.

“We are particularly hopeful about a contract to upgrade the US frigates,” the official said.

The Havelsan official said other potential buyers include Taiwan and Spain. ■
