    The German Navy's new F125 frigate will have the capability to be deployed worldwide for up to two years before returning to the home base and can be in operation for up to 5,000h a year, including under tropical conditions. F125 is the project name for the Type 125 Baden-Württemberg class of frigates.

    The main mission of the F125 frigate is taking part in joint assignments, including multinational assignments in network-centric operations. The 5,500t displacement frigate has a new and stealthy design of hull and superstructure, which appears to be based on a highly modified Meko-D configuration.

    idk, the website says 5500. Maybe @Bundeswehr can clarify with German sources, the German Navy's website might have something on it.

    ''The Frigate Class 125 is designed for world-wide conflict prevention and crisis management. Four new Class 125 frigates of 7.200 tons are under construction and will be delivered to the German Navy in the years before 2020''

    I think that website made a mistake.
    Take a look at the video,
