Lists to Starboard?

The German Navy is having problems with their new class of frigate.  To the point where they have refused to accept delivery.  Evidently, the new software and hardware systems didn't play well together.
System integration issues are a major chunk of the Baden-Würrtemberg’s problems. About 90 percent of the ship’s systems are so new that they’ve never been deployed on a warship—in fact, they’ve never been tested together as part of what the US Navy would call “a system of systems.” And all of that new hardware and software have not played well together—particularly with the ship’s command and control computer system, the Atlas Naval Combat System (ANCS).
That, and it had a permanent list to starboard.

Yep, and they did a lousy job of welding too... Sadly, they're making LCS look GOOD!
