Thales Germany has been a permanent partner of the German Navy for many years and supplies high-tech solutions for navies to many other countries. With the MKS (Multi-Purpose Combat Ship) 180 order, we are not only supporting the German Navy in the development of a new type of ship, which is measured against the complex requirements in operational scenarios on the high seas, but are also closer in terms of international defense and security policy to our partners worldwide. In the future, the navy should be able to conduct three-dimensional naval warfare across the entire spectrum of intensity. The new ship type MKS 180, since January 1, 2021 officially F126, is designed for a variety of tasks, such as monitoring of sea areas, support of special forces in crisis regions or support in sea rescue through its possibilities to adapt to a wide variety of missions worldwide. At the German locations in Wilhelmshaven and Kiel and at the Dutch location in Hengelo, specialists work on technologies that efficiently support armed forces at sea. Customers also benefit from the extensive know-how of other national companies of the Thales group.
