Interesting to visit, if only to see what they bring to NATO - as one of NATO's newest members - but, you have to wait until the middle of the third march, and the begining of the fourth (the last) march before you see anything slightly modern. Good music though!

Just stumbled upon recent information on modern Bulgarian Navy (and, their other armed forces).

http://www.sexyclopedia.com/?title=M..._Bulgaria#Navy

At the end, the site also includes "leads" to:

- the rest of the forces that might be considered "Military of Europe", and
- the nations bordering the Black Sea (treaty) forces,

(. . . to which I will return immediately !!)

Bulgarian Corvettes

From: “Warships INTERNATIONAL FLEET REVIEW”, December 2007 issue, Page 6.

"The French DCNS group is at the centre of a programme that will see the modernisation of Bulgaria’s naval forces.

A French-Bulgarian working group has been set up to finalise the contract, for the procurement of four "Gowind" corvettes, before the end of (the) year.

The programme will be led by DCNS’s Lorient shipyard and will involve extensive cooperation with Bulyard Shipbuilding Industry (BSI) in Varna, Bulgaria.

BSI will complete an important share of the work as part of a technology transfer, resulting in significant economic benefits for Bulgaria.

The "Gowind" corvettes, designed for coastal missions, are directly derived from the advanced design and technology of the FREMM (French-Italian joint venture), multi-mission frigates, the future front line warships of the French Navy".


Useful links are:

http://www.warshipsifr.com/ The magazine is a good read - but not as easy to disguise as “work”, as it is when sat at the keyboard

http://www.dcn.fr/us/index.php In English - which was a surprise, plus . . . .

Bulgaria drops plan to acquire French Gowind corvettes.

From: “Warships INTERNATIONAL FLEET REVIEW”, March 2008 issue, Page 9 - just received yesterday, reports:

“ . . . the Bulgarian Navy (has decided) to drop its plan to acquire the (new build, French) Gowind Class corvettes.

Instead the Bulgarians intend buying two further former Belgian Wielingen class frigates (ex-BNS Wielingen and ex-BNS Westdiep), and one Tripartite Class mine-hunter (ex-BNS Myosotis).

The Bulgarians already operate the Wielingen class frigate Druzki (ex-Wandelaar)".
