The federal government has decided on the procedures for the commissioning of the multi-purpose combat ship 180 vis-à-vis parliament. Delivery of the four multi-purpose combat ships to the Bundeswehr is scheduled to begin in mid-2028 and be completed by mid-2032. The ships are to be delivered every two years.

They should be ready for action six months after acceptance by the Bundeswehr. The Bundeswehr is planning eight crews for the four multi-purpose combat ships. The crews should be available from the start of the test drives. The test drives are to begin twelve months before the ships are delivered to the Bundeswehr, according to the Federal Government's response to a parliamentary question.
