Despite the renditions have been around for some time now, I was only able to get some sort of profile view of the offical concept pictures of Finnish Navy's new warships for the 2020 era...

So here it is, the new Project of Minelaying icebreaker corvettes, that will form the backbone of our navy, a true open sea combatant after almost 30 years of such absence from our Waters. Although these will outward look much like any generic western OPV/corvette/light-frigate niche, they poses true inbuild mine deck and ice-breaking capacity in its hull form (sadly not yet published) and by these features, they will be quite unique vessels, and thus they simply had to be build in here, since no other manufacturer offered anything even remotely capable of passing the strict requirements.

At this stage the builder has been selected, and it will do the main design work, so the appereance of the actuall vessels when build might differ considerably. Also the weapon and equipment supliers have not yet been selected, so everything here is mere following the concept rendering with few selected choises for the artillery, the Oto Super rapid, as it appears to be in the concept pictures, and Millenium gun as my own musing to make this sort of lookalike to Sebu's wonderfull own ideas of this very concept.

As more information surfaces, Ill keep updating this and gradually move this to the real life section once we see it on the water.

Will be very interesting design indeed.
Btw. is Finnish navy still going to observe the limitations on tonnage that were enforced in post-WW2 peace treaty?

Nice drawing! I find the ice-breaking capability interesting.

Well, finally... :D Considering the references available, you've done great work, again!
It's going to be 2500-3000t and draft under 4 meters.

The Paris peace treaty does not bind Finland anymore.

Thanks.

The dimensions of this drawing are still of bit quesswork. Back when the program started, it was quoted that the ships would be around 90-110 meters long. I scaled this with the oto's gun, (resulting redrawing the entire thing BTW), and By it I got into roughly 109 meters.

here is my new Oto's Super rapid:
