Extra info:
The Type 720 tugs are large seagoing salvage tugs used by the German Navy. After the decommissioning of A1457 Helgoland, the class is now referred to as the "Fehmarn" class in the German Navy.

As with other auxiliary ship classes in Germany, these tugboats are crewed by civilians.

The ships are named after the German islands Helgoland (Heligoland) and Fehmarn.
