Project history

Intended to replace some units of the Type 122 (Bremen-class) multipurpose frigates beginning around 2016. Ordered in 2007 with work conducted as part of a joint venture between ThyssenKrupp and Lürssen Werft. Lürssen's share of the shipbuilding work is estimated to be 20% and includes bow construction, while ThyssenKrupp has overall leadership of the effort and is responsible for 80% of the construction effort, including assembly, fitting out, and trials. Originally eight ships of this class were to be built, but financial constraints in Germany reduced the program to four units. The ships are planned to have "autonomous internal zones" divided by flexible watertight blast- and fragmentation-resistant bulkheads. Current requirements indicate that the vessels are to remain operational more than 5000 hours per year with the capability to operate away from homeport up to two years at a time. The class is expected to employ a dual crewing team concept, similar to the system used aboard U.S. Navy submarines and littoral combat ships. Initial plans to carry a 155mm gun and multiple rocket launchers have been dropped in favor of the 127mm/ 64 gun, for which a long-range (100km) land attack guided munition known as Vulcano is under development. The ships will also carry minehunting ROVs.

Trials of lead ship gave discouraging results: Baden-Würtemberg had persistent 1.3° list to starboard, she was drastically overweight, had big top weight, had many problems with ship's control from operations room, her service cost dramatically raised and opportunities for further modernizations due to overweight have become ghostly. As a result, at first time in Bundesmarine history, after trials ships was returned to builder.
