Frigates SACH­SEN-Class (Type 124)
The SACH­SEN-class ships are designed as mul­ti­pur­pose frigates for escort­ing and area pro­tec­tion and accom­mo­date heli­copters. Their sen­sors and weapons are opti­mized to ful­fill their pri­ma­ry tasks, i.e. force com­mand and extend­ed air defense. Sim­i­lar to frigates of the BREMEN- and BRAN­DEN­BURG-class, the ship­borne heli­copter is employed in long-range anti-sur­face and anti­sub­ma­rine oper­a­tions. With the deliv­ery of the SACH­SEN-class frigates, the Navy has received a par­tic­u­lar­ly ver­sa­tile and robust means of naval war­fare.

Frigates BRAN­DEN­BURG-Class (Type 123)
The BRAN­DEN­BURG-class frigates are pri­mar­i­ly 4 designed tor anti-sub­ma­rine war­fare and force com­mand and con­trol. The SEA LYNX ship­borne heli­copter is not only used pri­mar­i­ly for anti­sub­ma­rine oper­a­tions, but is also employed in sea sur­veil­lance and anti­sur­face war­fare. The ships are equipped with etfi­cient radarsys­tems for sur­face and air sur­veil­lance, fire con­trol and nav­i­ga­tion. Sonar sys­tems, tac­ti­cal pic­ture and data trans­mis­sion sys­tems, elec­tron­ic wartare sys­tems and advanced com­mu­ni­ca­tions tech­nol­o­gy spe­cial­ly designed tor com­mand and con­trol tasks com­plete their array of equip­ment.

Frigates BRE­MEN-Class (Type 122)
Like the BRAN­DEN­BURG-class frigates, the BRE­MEN-class frigates are high per­for­mance ves­sels. Their main tasks, are anti-sub­ma­rine and anti-sur­face war­fare. The SEA LYNX ship­borne heli­copter is employed in anti-sub­ma­rine oper­a­tions, and also in long-range sea sur­veil­lance and anti-sur­face war­fare Oper­a­tions.

Com­bat Sup­port Ships BERLIN-Class (Type 702)
The BERLIN-class sup­port ships ren­der sup­port to Navy task groups, the com­po­si­tion of which depends on their tasks. Here, the focus is on logis­tic and med­ical sup­port by the com­bat sup­port ship. The ship‘s main logis­tic task is to sup­ply the units with fuel, con­sum­ables, pro­vi­sions and ammu­ni­tion. In addi­tion, the com­bat sup­port ship per­forms the fol­low­ing tasks:

  • Med­ical sup­port by accom­mo­da­tion of a con­tainer­ized mobile naval sur­gi­cal hos­pi­tal, referred to as MERZ

  • Oper­a­tion of two ship­borne heli­copters

  • Trans­port, man­age­ment and han­dling of con­tain­ers

  • Accom­mo­da­tion for sup­port per­son­nel

  • Pro­vi­sion of we!fare facil­i­ties

  • Envi­ron­men­tal­ly com­pat­i­ble dis­pos­al of sewage and waste

Aux­il­iaries
Aux­il­iaries ensure the sup­ply of fleet units at sea. Depend­ing on the mis­sion assigned to the indi­vid­ual units, the aux­il­iaries are specif­i­cal­ly equipped and manned for this pur­pose. Apart from the self­de­fence weapons aboard the BERLIN-class ships which are manned by mil­i­tary per­son­nel, aux­il­iaries are not equippeci with weapon sys­tems. Addi­tion­al auxi­i­iary squadron class­es are:

  • WEST­ER­WALD-class sup­ply ship

  • WANGEROOGE-class ocean tug

  • WALCHENSEE-class replen­ish­ment tanker

Many units are for­mer mer­chant ships or were built to mer­chant marine stan­dards. Where nec­es­sary, equip­ment and Sys­tems were adapt­ed to mil­i­tary require­ments.
