Norwegian Navy Blows Up Own Ship
The Norwegian navy tests its new four-metre long, 880lb Naval Strike Missile by firing on one of its own ships, the KNM Trondheim, with spectacular results. Footage filmed from on- board the KNM Trondheim shows the moment the subsonic missile smashed into the side of the ship exploding in a massive fireball. Debris from 300ft long vessel is thrown high into the air as the missile hit the frigate which was in the waters off the coast of Andoy, head on causing extensive damage to the ship. The damaged ship was then towed back to harbour for examination.
