The German Köln class frigates (Klasse 120) was built 1957-1964 with CODAG propulsion. The Danish Peder Skram class built 1964-1967 had CODOG propulsion.
It is a problem specific to the Freedom class. The Independence class also has CODAG - I think without similar problems.
For sure, there had been also other ship classes with problems with the propulsion, e.g. because of poor design (apparently the problem of the Type 45) or poor production standards (the problems with the gearing of the corvettes of the Braunschweig class).
