Información histórica sobre el buque de asalto anfibio Rommel D187 (clase Lütjens)

D187 Rommel was a guided missile destroyer of the Bundesmarine (West German Navy) and later the Deutsche Marine (Navy of reunited Germany). It was the third and last ship of the Lütjens class, a modification of the Charles F. Adams class. On February 1, 1969, she was launched and baptised Rommel by Lucie Maria Rommel, widow of Generalfeldmarschall Erwin Rommel. On May 2, 1970, she was commissioned into the 1. Zerstörergeschwader (first destroyer squadron), based in Kiel.

 

On September 30, 1998, she had to be decommissioned, because the operating licence for the boilers expired. She was then towed to Wilhelmshaven and cannibalised for spare parts for her two sisters, Lütjens and Mölders, which continued to serve for five more years. In 2004 she was finally scrapped in Turkey.
