        Let me ask you ..
        And what for a goat button accordion?
        There is only one answer - to surf the open spaces with those who force.
        The party (State Department) said it is necessary ...

    By displacement, this is almost a destroyer! If they want to build a couple of destroyers, the displacement will be over 25000 tons? ??

      It's strange why Israel did not squeeze it out of the Germans .. Usually they do it quickly and have no objections .. Seeing too simple or waiting for an increase in indemnities for the war with the Arabs .. The Germans already do not know whether they should build something ..)) ))

      Probably there are some restrictions from the overseas "partner".

      So it was created so that if I am not mistaken, it could be at sea without entering the ports, only the rotation of the team and supplies need to be brought up. They want to increase the return on the ship, because while the ship is at the pier at the military base, it does not bring any benefit.

      And this frigate and others, such as FREMM, come out with weak weapons. If necessary, it can be quickly increased. It seems that this was the original concept.

      Seats for Tomahawk, Standard 2 and 3 are eaten when needed for additional weapons.

    This frigate is not simple.

    In my opinion, the Germans are cunning and are preparing for a global war, the weapons are too weak for such a displacement, judging by the official regime, and this frigate is the size of a destroyer with an emphasis on maximum survivability.

    Over there, behind the cannon, there is some ridiculous superstructure with an air defense system, under it there is probably already a VPU Mk.41 or a space for it has been reserved for 64 cells.

    This ship will be able to shoot both Standards and Tomahawks.

      There are no reserves there. This is an actual ocean patrol ship / flag display with no limits. 22160 at maximum speed, with all sorts of features, such as dropping 4 boats with special forces at full speed, so that the pirates do not run away.


      The Italians classify their mega patrolmen as offshore patrol thorns. Although there is already a UVP, where you can put Scalpy, to carry democracy.

    The head Baden Wütenberg cost the German taxpayer 850 million euros. Who knows which German is in the NATO squadron in the South China Sea?

    Do the Germans from the RCC only have ancient Harpoons?

      Do the Germans from the RCC only have ancient Harpoons?

      Not only - they also have Swedish RBS-15s. There was a big scandal with them in 2016 when it turned out. that the purchased anti-ship missiles do not have the option "work on a ground target" required by the TK.
      ... at the end of April 2016, the Federal Audit Office of the Federal Republic of Germany reprimanded the country's Ministry of Defense for the appalling conduct of a contract for the purchase of 30 Saab RBS-15 Mk 3 anti-ship missiles designed to arm German project K130 corvettes (of the Braunschweig type).

      The contract for the purchase of these missiles from the Saab / Diehl Defense consortium was signed in 2005 for 60 million euros. The delivery date was fixed - it was 2009. But in the end, the deliveries were completed only at the end of 2011, and, according to the Audit Chamber, the Bundeswehr paid in cash "without proper monitoring of the state of the missiles."

      As a result, a year later, the missiles were tested, and two of them crashed at sea. In addition, it turned out that the delivered missiles can only be used against naval targets, and ground targets cannot be hit, although the requirement for the possibility of hitting ground targets was specified in the contract. “A new missile test in 2015 cost the Bundeswehr several million euros,” the Audit Chamber complains, noting that the manufacturer must pay these costs.

      Plus, the Germans will have more NSMs.

    Something for such a displacement is not enough weapons.

    Yes, after (excuse me, damn it) the Nuremberg trials? - extinguish, only extinguish - if they did not comply. I do not want war, but in my opinion, all treaties are a betrayal of the process, which means what? ... - destruction.
