The Type 125 Baden-Württemberg-class of frigates, currently in development for the German Navy by ARGE F125, a joint-venture of Thyssen-Krupp and Lürssen. F125 is officially classified as frigates but in size and role they could be classified as destroyers, since, with a displacement of more than 7,200 tons, they will be the biggest class of frigates worldwide. They are to replace the Bremen-class frigates.
