Thee Type 103 destroyers were based on the USN family of 'Tartar guided-missile destroyers SCB 155' (Charles F. Adams class Mod 14). They stemmed from a US/German agreement of 11.5.1964; the USN ordered them as DDG28-30.
TheyI differ from the original Charles F. Adams class in having modified funnels with side exhausts, and different masts. Originally it was intended to build six ships in German shipyards, but three were ordered from Bath Iron Works.
