Description: The ThyssenKrupp and Blohm + Voss GmbH MEKO A-200 class ships are the next generation of surface combatants evolved from the MEKO-family and offered by Germany for the export market. They are able to accommodate advanced propulsion systems, sensors and weaponry while providing improved survivability using low-observable technologies and design. Retrofit and upgrade processes will be easily carried out thanks to a modular open architecture and cutting-edge construction techniques. The first MEKO A-200 boat was commissioned in 2006.

The MEKO A-200 Anti-Air Warfare (AAW) frigate has been developed to provide are air defense against advanced airborne threats. They feature two 16-cell VLS at the center of the ship and a 8-cell VLS at the stem deck. The APAR multi-function radar and SMART-L search radar employed onboard the LCF and F124-class frigates will be also provided for the A-200 frigates, integration of the AN/SPY-1F radar system is also possible. Eight Anti-ship missiles, 2 RAM close-in weapon systems, and a 127mm naval gun complete the weapon system. A helicopter hangar and flight deck are located at the stern of the ship for a single medium/light ASW helicopter.
