in 1982 iraq made a $2.4Bn order for the following ships from the Italian shipyard in La Spezia.

THe order included:

4x Lupo Class frigates equipped with anti ship and surface to air missiles as well as a AB212 ASW helicopter
4x Assad Class Corvettes equipped with Anti Ship and surface to air missiles
2x Helicopter capable Assad class corvettes
1x Ajnadeen Replenishment ship (stromboli class) - i am not sure if it was only one or 2 of these that iraq ordered.
1x Floating dock
8x AB 212 ASW Helicopters
Ottomat anti ship missiles
Aspide surface to air missiles

Due to the war and Iraq's bad financial situation, Iraq only ever managed to pay $441M of the complete order, and therefore the Italians sold off the 4x Lupo class frigates and 4x Assad class missile corvettes (without helo pad).

The replenishment ship Adjnadeen was stuck in Alexandria Egypt after 1990.
The 2 Assad class corvettes that remained nominally 'Iraqi' have been moored up in La Spezia Italy since 1987, and are now scrap metal.

In 2005 Iraq made a deal with Fincantieri to write off the 2 Assad class corvettes and instead buy 4 brand new Large Patrol Boats (Saettia Mk 4 patrol boats), which have finally joined the Iraqi navy starting in 2008.


below is a picture of 2 Lupo Class frigates and 2 assad class corvettes in Italy before the Italians sold them off.

Agnadeen Stromboli class Oiler

Agnadeen class AOR

(Iraq)

Name

No.

Launch

Comm

Fate

Agnadeen

A 102

Oct 1982

Dec 1983

-

Inactive (Alexandria, Egypt)

Notes: As part of a build-up of the fleet, Iraq ordered this near-sister to the Italian navy’s Stromboli class. She has amidships highline stations for stores and fuel, and an astern station for fuel. There is a helipad aft but no hangar.

Agnadeen spent 1984 and 1985 in Italian waters, training the Iraqi crew. In 1986 she docked at Alexandria, Egypt as it was not safe to sail for Iraq with Iranian troops threatening Basra. She has not moved an inch since then.

In 1991, the UN committee in charge of the armistice that ended Desert Storm awarded custody of Agnadeen to Italy. For unclear reasons, the ship was never claimed and remained in Alexandria. In 2005, the Italian navy pledged unspecified “assistance” to the new Iraqi Coastal Defense Force. It is possible that Agnadeen may be returned to Iraqi custody. However, after 20 years motionless with minimal upkeep, the ship is likely in horrible mechanical condition and may not be able to ever sail again regardless.

The vessel itself is an excellent design; however Agnadeen is symbolic of the wastefulness of the Hussein regime. When Agnadeen commissioned, there weren’t any ships in the Iraqi navy even capable of UNREP, and the largest planned future additions were coastal frigates. There was absolutely no need for an oiler of this type. Iraq’s inability to provide air cover for their navy means Agnadeen would have quickly been sunk in any conflict.

Displacement: 3556t standard, 8706t full Dimensions: 423‘1”x59’x21’3”

Machinery: 2 GMT A420.8H diesels, 1 shaft

The Artigliere class light frigates

a slightly updated version of Lupo class frigates


Italian contract, and so the deal was known in Iraq at the time included a number of modren vessels, which as part of a naval expansion program and that the contract was signed before the outbreak of the Iran-Iraq war in 1980 with Fincantieri at their Ancona and Riva Trigosa shipyards but delivery was cancelled following the United Nations embargoes against Iraq in 1990. These ships included 4 modified Lupo class frigates, which feature a telescopic hangar for an Agusta Bell AB 212 helicopter. were completed between 1985 and 1987 and In 1993 all of them were seized and, after being refitted as patrol ships, incorporated to the Marina Militare as the Artigliere class or Soldati Class in 1996. Changes made for new weapons and communications systems were fitted to meet the requirements for Italian Navy service included the removal of all ASW equipment. And are used in fleet escort or long range patrolling duties. The four ships are:-

F 582 ITS Artigliere 1994 ex Hittin / F 14

F 583 ITS Aviere 1995 ex Thi Qar / F 15

F 584 ITS Bersagliere 1995 ex Al Yarmuk / F 17
