Future Belgian Navy Frigates May Have Ballistic Missile Defense Capabilities

Belgium is planning to give Ballistic Missile Defense (BMD) capabilities to its future frigates. The information was revelead in December 2016 by Dutch online media Marineschepen, a well-connected source on Dutch and Belgian naval defence topics. Contacted by Navy Recognition in December, a Belgian Navy spokesperson confirmed that the government had such intention, but the decision (to give the future frigates BMD capabilities) would be political. The spokesman pointed to an official document from the Belgian "Chamber of Representatives" from July 2016 in which the BMD topic was mentionned for the first time.
