The new F 124 class

This class will be the newest German ship class. These ships are replacing the last destroyers. Unlike the other frigates classes (F 122, F123) it's main role is AAW (Anti Air Warfare). Four ships are planned. First to be build at 2002.
The power system will be again the Combined Diesel or Gasturbine (CODOG) - already installed on the other frigates - or a new Combined Diesel and Gasturbine (CODAG). Because of the strict German enviromental laws there was problem with the new cooling system since the old system used at the other frigates wasn't allowed anymore. So they are planning to use a new one with a bigger size and higher energy consumption. Since the new radars also need more power they had to implent a stronger electric plant.
