The German frigate Sachsen, built by Blohm + Voss, was recently undocked and towed to its outfitting pier for the mounting of its newly-developed radar units. The Sachsen is the first of a series of three F 124 class frigates, displacing about 5500 tonnes and carrying ultra-modern weapons and radar equipment for long-range air defence. The Sachsen will be the largest combat vessel of the German Navy and is to undergo sea trials in 2001.
