Blohm+Voss Class 130 Corvette

The compact corvettes were designed and built by the Class 130 Consortium led by Blohm + Voss.

Five built ships have the primary task of surface surveillance, reconnaissance, surface target engagement, humanitarian missions, countering asymmetric threats and operating mainly in the littorals.

The platform features an x-shape RCS-reducing hull with significant IR-suppression measures with no funnels and hot spots and sea-water injection in horizontal
exhaust ducts complemented by a sophisticated Integrated Monitoring and Control System (IMCS) with over 7000 measuring points.

The corvettes have spacious landing decks for a 12 ton helicopter and hangars for two drones (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles - UAV's).

Together with the highest integrated onboard networks so far (Combat Management System, Communication, Navigation qualifying the vessel for joint operations) the corvettes have incorporated major Blohm+Voss MEKO®-design principles and thus represent a valuable asset for the German Navy.
