Frigate
A frigate /ˈfrɪɡɪt/ is any of several types of warship, the term having been used for ships of various sizes and roles over the last few centuries. In the 17th century, this term was used for any warship built for speed and maneuverability, the description often used being "frigate-built". These could be warships carrying their principal batteries of carriage-mounted guns on a single deck or on two decks (with further smaller carriage-mounted guns usually carried on the forecastle and quarterdeck of the vessel). The term was generally used for ships too small to stand in the line of battle, although early line-of-battle ships were frequently referred to as frigates when they were built for speed. In the 18th century, the term referred to ships that were usually as long as a ship of the line and were square-rigged on all three masts (full-rigged), but were faster and with lighter armament, used for patrolling and escort

Bremen Class Frigate
The eight F122 Bremen-class frigates of the German Navy were commissioned between 1982 and 1990. The design is based on the proven Dutch Kortenaer class but uses a different propulsion system and hangar lay-out. The ships were built for anti-submarine warfare as a primary task even though they are not fitted with towed array sonars. They are also suited for anti-aircraft warfare and anti-surface warfare. This class of ship was one of the last to be constructed under post-war displacement limitations imposed by the WEU on West Germany. All eight Bremen-class frigates will be replaced by the planned F125-class frigates, starting probably around 2016
