'Disaster for the navy': Germany ‘running out’ of warships

A German defense official warned the country’s navy is running out of combat-capable vessels & will be unable to deploy overseas. He said that several frigates & auxiliary ships were already decommissioned due to their age.

“The Navy is running out of deployment-capable ships,” Hans-Peter Bartels, chief of the German parliament’s defense committee, told the Bild am Sonntag newspaper. He said that the problem has snowballed over time, because old ships were taken out of service but no replacement vessels were provided.

Bartels, an influential Social Democratic Party (SPD) MP, said that six out of fifteen frigates were already decommissioned, adding that “none of the new Type-125 frigates are able to join the navy.” Auxiliary ships suffered the same fate, with two German Navy replenishment vessels, ‘Berlin’ and ‘Bonn’, being sent for a 1.5-year refit.
