ABSTRACT
The fourth and final MEKO A-200SAN I frigate, the Mendi, was delivered to the South African Navy on June 15, 2004. The Mendi and three sisters, known as the Valour class, are based on a Blohm + Voss design and were ordered by South Africa in late 1999, with work beginning in August 2001. The ships had a staggered construction program, so the first and third units, the Amatola and the Spioenkop, were built by Blohm + Voss in Hamburg, Germany, and the second and forth, the Isandlwana and the Mendi, were built by HDW in Kiel.
