FGS Hessen (F 221):
 
Shortly after her commissioning in 2006, Hessen was deployed with other ships of the German Navy to guard the Mecklenburg coastline during the 33rd G8 summit in 2007, which was being held in the region.

In 2008 she was part of the Maritime Task Force deployed in support of the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon.

In late 2009 Hessen was involved in a Composite Training Unit Exercise off the east coast of the USA, in company with the USS Dwight D. Eisenhower. In March the following year she was part of the USS Harry S. Truman combat group. In June the Hessen transited the Suez Canal with the US force and deployed with the US Fifth Fleet.

From January to June 2013 Hessen was part of Standing NATO Maritime Group 1, as the flagship of Flotilla Admiral Georg von Maltzan. She also participated in Operation Active Endeavour during this period.

From December 2013 to April 2014, Hessen was deployed with EUNAVFOR in Operation Atalanta, tackling piracy off the coast of Somalia.

From May to June 2015, Hessen deployed in the Mediterranean alongside the replenishment ship Berlin. Together the two vessels saved several hundred migrants from shipwrecks and other incidents.

In 2017 Hessen was responsible for securing the airspace at the G20 summit in Hamburg.

On 28 January 2018 Hessen arrived at Naval Station Norfolk. She and the Norwegian frigate HNoMS Roald Amundsen took part in Composite Training Unit Exercises with the aircraft carrier USS Harry S. Truman, after which Hessen accompanied the combat group on the first half of its deployment to the Mediterranean.
