Sadly, another navy has suffered a collision that will likely sink the frigate. No word on casualties during the collision but all crew have been taken off the ship.
The short video shows tugboats pushing the ship against the shore to try to stop it capsizing, but the picture below shows a much increased list that may mean the ship is a write-off.

Damage to electricals. Emergency repairs falling. Ship scuttled.

Ideal ship movement is horizontal, not rotational along an axis.

Damn shame. That wipes out, what, 10% of their 'blue water' capabilities? Hope it can be salvaged.

ETA: Looks like an Aegis-like foremast. Are they running that on their frigates?

I fear that it might even be a bigger percentage of their 'blue water' capabilities. However, it is tough for me to rate the 'blue water' capability of their smaller vessels. Now there are only 4 frigates left in active service.

Although the Norwegian Navy is still a formidable 'blue water' force compared to the Swedish, so called, Navy.

Interestingly enough, yes they are.

Looks like the Captain and a few of the crew are going to have their pay docked for a while.

Hi, I think they are going to fix my account so I get Mogami back. However I was Bullwinkle on forums in 2005 because that is how people refer to me in person. No one calls me Mogami. My own kids call me Bullwinkle. I am a peaceful moose no need for violence.

Yep. Spain has a cottage industry doing that. They made some for their Navy, then some for Norway (I think made in Spain) and it is one of the candidates for the next generation US FFX program.

"We've got control?" Reminds me of the old spiel (don't know if it is true or not) about a US aircraft carrier on a CBDR (Constant Bearing, Decreasing Range) vector with something on the radar. The carrier keeps on telling the radar contact to change course and the final bit is, "We're a lighthouse."

Not sure how you were going to end that post.

But before you go there, horning of the butts is not allowed here.

Not so bad. Most of that will buff out.

An urban legend.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lighthouse_and_naval_vessel_urban_legend

From wikipedia:
A commonly circulated version goes thus:

This is the transcript of a radio conversation of a US naval ship with Canadian authorities off the coast of Newfoundland in October, 1995. Radio conversation released by the Chief of Naval Operations 10-10-95.

Americans: Please divert your course 15 degrees to the North to avoid a collision.
Canadians: Recommend you divert YOUR course 15 degrees to the South to avoid a collision.
Americans: This is the Captain of a US Navy ship. I say again, divert YOUR course.
Canadians: No. I say again, you divert YOUR course.
Americans: This is the aircraft carrier USS Lincoln, the second largest ship in the United States' Atlantic fleet. We are accompanied by three destroyers, three cruisers and numerous support vessels. I demand that YOU change your course 15 degrees north, that's one five degrees north, or countermeasures will be undertaken to ensure the safety of this ship.
Canadians: This is a lighthouse. Your call.


Other vessels sometimes named in the transcript include the carriers Enterprise, Coral Sea and Nimitz, and the Missouri, a battleship. The location of the exchange has also sometimes been claimed to be Puget Sound, or off the coast of North Carolina, some other times the lighthouse is located at Cape Finisterre (Spain). (The Spanish version expands the joke by having the lighthouse keeper respond to the aircraft carrier's inventory of the fleet by saying he's accompanied by "our dog, our food, two beers, and a canary that's currently asleep.") Some versions relocate it to the Irish or Scottish coasts; in the former case the ship is sometimes identified as British, with the conversation taking place off the coast of Kerry in 1998.There is sometimes an additional line of dialogue where the lighthouse keeper tells the ship captain he is a Seaman First Class before the final exchange. The prefatory information sometimes notes it was released in response to a request under the Freedom of Information Act, and/or names Jeremy Boorda, the incumbent Chief of Naval Operations on the stated date.

The Honda Point disaster was the largest peacetime loss of U.S. Navy ships. On the evening of September 8, 1923, seven destroyers, while traveling at 20 knots (37 km/h), ran aground at Honda Point
USS Delphy was equipped with a radio navigation receiver, but her navigator and captain ignored its indicated bearings, believing them to be erroneous.

At least no people got lost in the incident. Too often maritime collisions bring horrendous losses if a ship is hit by a bulbous bow of another, like the one which caused russian passenger ship Admiral Nakhimoff to sink in 1986...

Well the Norwegians raised the Kursk from deep water, so they should be able to lift this ship and put her on a heavy lift ship like the one that carried USS Cole home after the attack by terrorists.
