4. F105 Cristobal Colon(Spain) – $954 million
This F105 frigate “Cristóbal Colón” is the fifth unit of the modern and multi-purpose F-100 AEGIS frigates, with which the Spanish Navy contributes to the objectives of National Defense at the dawn of the 21st century. It is a modern unit and the last of the F-100 series. Although warships are by nature austere vessels, the habitability has been improved to make her as comfortable as possible. The design has taken into account the possibility of turning the frigate into a Command and Control ship providing coverage to expeditionary forces and operating in a flexible way in coastal and blue waters scenarios.

6. FREMM (Franco/Italian)- $745 million
