Naval vessels are somewhat out of my lane, but if a ship has a persistent 1.3 degree list isn't that a significant issue?
Nimitz class carriers have similar permanent list, I don't know if it has been fixed in Ford. Of course ships do not sail with a list, it is fixed by counterweighting, they keep some of the damage control voids filled with water. Obviously this reduces reserve buoyancy of the hull.
As for the F125 as a warship...well, who am I to question the requirement of a colonial cruiser for a country which has no colonial empire??
Though, Germany is hardly alone. Quote: "Our current ships can operate in the Mediterranean, but not on Indian Ocean, so our new ships will be designed with that in mind." That quote came from FINNISH admiral.
Though, it was pre-2014 and seems that since then, requirements have been tuned to slightly more sensible direction.
