The Tripartite-class is a class of mine warfare vessel used by the navies of Belgium, Bulgaria, France, Indonesia, Latvia, the Netherlands and Pakistan.

A joint venture of the navies of France, Belgium, and the Netherlands, the Tripartite-class of minehunters were conceived in the 1970s and built in the 1980s. France built the mine-hunting equipment, Belgium provided the electronics, and the Netherlands constructed the propulsion train. France and the Netherlands originally bought fifteen each, with Belgium buying ten.

All three countries' Tripartite-class ships contribute at times to NATO's Standing Maritime MCM capability groups (SNMCMG1 or SNMCMG2).
