German Navy to Get Five More K130 Braunschweig-class Corvettes

Germany approved the procurement of five additional Braunschweig class (K-130) corvettes on Friday. This new procurement, worth about 1.5 Billion Euros is to answer new NATO requirements: NATO expects the German Navy (Marine) to provide a total of four corvettes at the highest readiness level for use in littoral operations from 2018. With the current five K130 class corvettes, the Marine can only provide two vessels.
