Triglav is an Svetlyak-class patrol boat operated by the 430th Naval Section of the Slovenian Armed Forces. It is a small, multirole craft capable of maritime patrol, supporting diver operations, coastal survey, combat, and SAR. It has twice been deployed outside Slovenian territorial waters in concert with other NATO naval forces.

History[edit]

In 2008, Slovenia agreed to the acquisition of one Project 10412-class patrol boat in exchange for discharging a multimillion-dollar debt owed by Russia. The ship was laid down in 2009, completed in 2011, and delivered to Slovenia the same year. It was named SNS Triglav after Slovenia's highest mountain and national symbol. The ship's armament loadout was optimized for a patrol role, lacking the anti-ship missiles of the standard Svetlyak. In late 2012, this capability was restored by mounting six 9M120 anti-ship missiles. In summer 2015, the Triglav underwent an overhaul in the Trieste shipyard.

Deployments[edit]

The Triglav was sent to eastern Sicily on 15 December 2013 to assist Italy with refugees from Africa as part of operation Mare Nostrum.

In October 2015, the vessel was sent to southern Italy as a part of the European Union's Operation Sophia. Triglav successfully carried out its first rescue operation on 28 October, recovering 100 people (71 male, 17 female, and 12 children).[1]
