TKMS delivers F 125 frigate model to German Navy

A 1:100 scale model of the German Navy’s newest F 125 class of frigates was delivered to the German Navy Support Command.

ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems, the German company responsible for the construction of the four frigates, transferred the model to mark the commissioning of a new F 125 test- and training center.

This milestone comes after the first of class ship, FGS Baden-Württemberg, started builder’s trials last month.

The four F 125 class frigates will replace the eight frigates of the F122-class, which will be gradually decommissioned.

By the end of the decade, the four ships will be operated by a total of eight crews with a total of 120 personnel each. The Navy refers to this as the multiple-crew model where the eight crews will be operating as a closed team on a rotation principle.

With a length of 149 meters and a displacement of 7000 tonnes, the new frigates will be the biggest operational ships in the German Navy.
