The Flyvefisken class patrol vessels are warships of the Royal Danish Navy. The class is also known as the Standardflex 300 or SF300 class.
The Flyvefisken ships are innovative in that they were built with a modular design: they have a standard hull in which containerised weapon systems can be placed. This allows them to change roles. Typically 48 hours are necessary to change roles. This enables the ships to be configured to perform these roles:
The containers measure 3.5x3x2.5 m. One container goes on the foredeck; the other 3 go on the quarterdeck behind the superstructure and funnel.
A total of 14 ships, where build in the class in three series:

Complement: 19-29 depending on role
Uses combined diesel and gas engines:
The armament depends on the ships current role, but include the following options:
