The German vessel the Oldenburg (inbound) to Devonport Dockyard in choppy waters this morning.

She is one of Germany’s newest class of ocean going corvettes and part of five ships that have replaced the Gerard-class fast attack craft of the German Navy.

The ship was spotted on our live 24 hour webcam and was was laid down on 19 January 2006, and launched on 28 June 2007 in Hamburg, and commissioned on 21 January 2013.

The hangar is too small for standard helicopters, but the pad is large enough for Sea KingsLynx, or NH-90s, that are the helicopters of the German Navy.
