Italy matches French naval tie-up with German sub partnership

Italian state shipyard Fincantieri and its French counterpart Naval Group signed a long-planned deal in June to create a joint venture to build and market naval vessels, with a “European patrol corvette” in the works.

But away from the limelight, Italy’s long-standing cooperation with Germany’s naval industry to build submarines is picking up speed with news that Fincantieri will build four more U-212 submarines for the Italian Navy under license from Thyssenkrupp Marine Systems.

With four already in service, that will bring to a total of eight the U-212 boats Italy has built in partnership with Germany, and the next batch is expected to be an updated version.

Known as the U-212A Near Future Submarine, or NFS, the next four subs will feature a large amount of new technology supplied by Italian industry, further blending Italian and German know-how and proving that integration of the European naval industry is not just an Italo-French affair [emphasis added].

“The main design is similar to the earlier submarines to keep logistics costs down, but there has been a lot of work with Italian industry on upgrading capabilities, which will also help improve the country’s industrial base,” an Italian defense source said.

This year’s Italian defense budget, which was published this month, claims the overall cost of four NFS vessels will be €2.35 billion (U.S. $2.65 billion) [emphasis added], while the source said the contract with Fincantieri for the first pair would be signed by year’s end.

The signing would put an end to French reports that Naval Group is informally pitching its Scorpene attack submarine to Italy in hopes Rome considers switching from the U-212.


The Italian submarine Salvatore Todaro prepares to pull into port at Naval Station Mayport, Fla,, in 2008. Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri could build four more of the 212-type boats under license from Germany's Thyssenkrupp Marine Systems. (U.S. Navy)

Doesnt BC have its own police or does the RCMP police the province ?

BC policing is covered by a mix of RCMP and municipal forces. Most rural areas contract with the RCMP.

May i ask for some examples of what type of stuff they asked you?

Unfortunately I'm uncertain as to whether I'm permitted to divulge that information. Perhaps a CAF member can chime in.

The medical is very thorough and you will be asked questions about your mental health and past treatments if applicable. I had my medical recently and it was very detailed and included questions about physical and mental health.

I am not sure if you can answer this, but i have a few friends that are currently enrolled in the forces, they have told me that as long as an MD can confirm that there will be no repercussions of me joining an environment like this, and can sign off on it, then i should be cleared to go?

I really hate that this is an barrier i may have to get over to do something i really want to do. Do they also take note of your temperament and mental condition while you are in there to do the medical? I know all of this is individual based and such, but im getting nervous. I also know the trade i chose to be processed for is in super high demand right now, does that have any factor in all of this?

As for the first question, when the medical technician required additional clarification regarding aspects of my health, I was provided a form that had to be completed by my family physician. Once complete, my medical file was forwarded for review. Essentially, although your MD may provide confirmation of health status, your medical file would still have to be reviewed. That's as far as I know.
