The Skjold class encompasses state of the art technology and is founded on the strong Norwegian naval experience in operating small and fast surface warships in the littorals with a heavy weapon load. The flexibility inherent in Skjold is interesting also to other navies. The ship and her Norwegian crew were in the U.S. for tests and trials together with the U.S. Navy from Okt 01 to Sept 02.
