FGS Schleswig-Holstein (F 216):
 
Schleswig-Holstein was deployed as part of the Maritime Task Force of the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon between September and December 2009, serving as the flagship of the taskforce commander, Flotilla Admiral Jürgen Mannhardt. On 19 May 2010 she replaced the frigate Emden on deployment with Operation Atalanta off the Horn of Africa. She spent 124 days with the taskforce there, and together with the EUNAVFOR flagship De Grasse, was involved in escorting ships from the World Food Program and the African Union Mission in Somalia. Schleswig-Holstein was replaced in this task by the frigate Köln in September 2010.

From June to December 2014 Schleswig-Holstein deployed on behalf of the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, escorting the MV Cape Ray across the Mediterranean, replacing the previous escort, the frigate Augsburg. The Cape Ray was carrying out the destruction of Syrian chemical weapons. On the completion of this mission Schleswig-Holstein then deployed on the Cougar 2014 exercises in the Mediterranean and Persian Gulf, in which she escorted a British amphibious combat group consisting of HMS Ocean, HMS Bulwark, RFA Lyme Bay and RFA Wave Knight.

From June to November 2015 Schleswig-Holstein was deployed with the EU Navfor Med mission in the Mediterranean, assisting in rescuing migrants from shipwrecks and other dangerous situations. On 22 July she rescued 111 people. On 24 August a pregnant Somali woman rescued from a refugee boat by HMS Enterprise gave birth to a child aboard the ship, the first to ever be born aboard a ship of the German Navy. At the suggestion of the attending medical personnel, the child was named Sophia. This was a name associated with German naval ships named Schleswig-Holstein, as the earlier destroyer Schleswig-Holstein had used the radio call sign "Sophie X". This was itself a reference to the early battleship SMS Schleswig-Holstein, which had been dedicated to Princess Louise Sophie of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Augustenburg, as have later ships of the name. EUNAVFORMED was subsequently renamed "Operation Sophia", after the baby born aboard Schleswig-Holstein. After participating in the rescue of a total of 4,224 shipwrecked refugees Schleswig-Holstein returned to her home port of Wilhelmshaven on 9 November 2015.
