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. :wacko:

Though, it was pre-2014 and seems that since then, requirements have been tuned to slightly more sensible direction.
