This article criticizes the German Navy F125 Frigates being lightly-armed for their size (7,200 tons) and under-performing due to what was included in their design (ex. a doubly redundant radar array, 2 x helicopter hangers, 4 x RHIB launch bays, etc...). Reading this article, I can see that compared to the rest of the world's frigates that it does not look comparable. After reading some of the comments however from actual taxpaying Germans (further below in the article), these ships sound like they are actually excelling in what they were made for which I think I agree with in the end. It excels in areas like performing escort, anti-piracy, humanitarian operations, etc... which are the most common missions in reality rather than possible eventualities. Nice ships. https://www.thedrive.com/the-war-zone/16920/the-curious-case-of-germanys-massive-new-but-relatively-toothless-type-125-frigates
