HNLMS Friesland (D812)

Dutch Friesland-class destroyer HNLMS Friesland (D812) at sea in the late 1950s.

The Friesland-class destroyers were built for the Royal Netherlands Navy in the 1950s. They were a larger modified version of the Holland-class with more powerful machinery. Eight ships were built. They were replaced by the Kortenaer-class frigates in the early 1980s and seven ships were sold to the Vietnamese Navy where they served until 1991. The main armament was supplied by Bofors.

The machinery was identical to that used in the British Daring-class destroyers and manufactured under licence by Werkspoor. The radar was manufactured by Hollandse Signaalapparaten.
