Description
The German Navy Braunschweig class corvettes (K130) 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.
