Korvette BRAUNSCHWEIG-Class (K 130)

On important technology fields the developments begun for the frigates of the SACHSEN class are consistently continued, for example within the range of ship-technical automation, the computer and network technology or the software of weapons and guiding systems.

The network is in such a way conceived for example that when damages at the ship all information can be exchanged nevertheless and processed. In the ship all components are several times present for the maintenance of the efficiency. The serviceability is protected by these redundancies. Beyond that numerous new developments and innovative proposals for solution are planned for the BRAUNSCHWEIG class. Within the range of the radar and infrared signature the BRAUNSCHWEIG class exhibits stealth characteristics. With its high speedable radar it always is in the picture of the momentary situation. In the future it is even angedacht to station "naval drones" on the corvette. The ship is put in such a way into the position to accomplish area clearing-up and monitoring beyond the radar horizon. The necessary devices exist already. All of this permits the employment in offshore waters, in particular in the context of multinational crisis reaction forces.

350 million per ships sounds like a lot. How much did it cost to build 170 and 171?
