Helge Ingstad: Warship collides with tanker in fjord

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-46136564

Norway has evacuated the entire crew of one of its warships after it collided in a fjord with an oil tanker.
Seven people were lightly injured in the collision in the Hjeltefjord near Bergen in the early hours of Thursday, rescuers say. The frigate has been listing dangerously.
The KNM Helge Ingstad had been returning from Nato military exercises.
The tanker, the Sola TS, was only slightly damaged and it appears that it did not spill oil.
It was not immediately clear what had caused the collision, which reportedly occurred shortly after 04:00 (03:00 GMT), and led to 137 people being taken off the warship.

Glad it sounds like the folks are okay, and also, not being political, but glad it wasn't one of America's warships doing the colliding this time.

Yes, good to know that no deaths reported. The warship does not look too good based on that twitter image in the article!

That video looked bad. Taken lots of water and a serious list to stern and starboard.


Good people sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

Someday your life will flash in front of your eyes. Make sure it is worth watching.

Yep. They beached her to stop her sinking. Pretty bad, this. One of our most advanced warships. Wonder who is to blame for the collision.


In all my years I've never seen the like. It has to be more than a hundred sea miles and he brings us up on his tail. That's seamanship, Mr. Pullings. My God, that's seamanship!

I wonder how the #%&*$# they managed to do that.

The tanker had the right of way due to where it came from and direction of traffic, so it is entirely the frigate's fault.
How does a modern frigate not manage to detect a supertanker in calm sees with it's sensors or even the Mk IIs or turn away at the last minute? It's not like it takes 2 miles to turn a frigate...

This smells of someone falling asleep on the bridge.

A fifth of our navy crippled :P thankfully they had the sense to sail/tow the ship to the shallows so it won't sink, but still it'll cost a #%&*$# to repair/refurbish it.

That is some gash,


There was only 16 squadrons of RAF fighters that used 100 octane during the BoB.
The Fw190A could not fly with the outer cannon removed.
There was no Fw190A-8s flying with the JGs in 1945.

I’m so glad they put that “music” to the video. It made it so much more informative and enjoyable.

Why do people think their music additions improve videos?

I will be surprised if that warship ever sees active duty again. Sad. Hope they prove me wrong.

SHould be easily repaired. Just mostly hull damage and flooding. Just grab a floating dock and ship it a drydock.

That is as long as the drydock stays afloat...

Russia’s only aircraft carrier appears to have been damaged while undergoing repairs after the dry dock it was being held in sank.
One person is missing and four others injured following the incident involving the Admiral Kuznetsov, which had been receiving an upgrade at the one of the world’s largest floating docks in the Kola Bay near Murmansk.


Dry dock sinks

Depends on how damaged the keel is. If it is bent enough to affect handling safely at top speed, it going to get junked.

She has slipped into deeper water, almost completely submerged now. I can't imagine it ever being cost effective to raise and refurbish this vessel now.

Yeah, I was proven wrong frown

Lots of speculations in the press here, if the wires keeping it up was erronously attached and so forth. Also about the accident itself.

It will be raised, that is a given. Refurbished is another. The way our pissant #%&*$# military and politicans thinks it'll be probbaly written off and not replaced.
