The ships are equipped with facilities to provide command facilities for the staff of a navy escadre. Besides they are equipped with weapon systems for the air-defence of an entire naval squadron. Characteristics are the stealth capabilities of the ships.

They have all new weapon technologies like: Standard missiles against air targets, Evolved Sea Sparrow against air targets at short distance, Goalkeeper 30 mm canon against targets at very short distance, 127 mm canon against surface- and airtargets, harpoon weapon system against surface targets, torpedo weapon system against submarines, systems for jamming and radarjamming,
