The Horizon-class are a class of highly sophisticated air-defence frigates (The French Navy applies the term first-class frigate to guided missile destroyers) in service with the French Navy and Italian Navy. The programme started off as the Common New Generation Frigate (CNGF), a multi-national collaboration to produce a new generation of air-defence frigates. In Italy the class is known as the Orizzonte-class, which translates to "horizon" in French and English. The UK then joined France and Italy in the Horizon-class frigate programme; however, differing national requirements, workshare arguments and delays led to the UK withdrawing on 26 April 1999 and starting its own national project Type 45 destroyer. On 23 November 1999 Marconi Electronic Systems or MES was confirmed as prime contractor for the Type 45 project Seven days later MES and British Aerospace merged to form BAE Systems, making the latter the prime contractor.

The FREMM multipurpose frigate are currently under construction using the same company structure as the Horizon project.
