Norwegian Frigate Collision, Trident Juncture

#3
That sucks. Good thing no one suffered significant injuries. Am sure the specifics will come out later, but not easy for a tanker to change course.

OT but I always said it's a bad idea to throw around Maltesers.

So not in open sea but close to shore for both vessels, happens around watch change if both ships are keeping traditional watch hours so maybe a bit of miscommunication, Maltese Tanker could mean anyone though.

Already flagged up with great glee by Grey Fox on the Arctic Theatre thread.

No doubt the useful idiots will be keen to blame 'NATO war games' and demand an end to provocation by the West. Do the Russians have many collisions?

For those a little less knowledgeable, this happen on a clear night a few weeks ago of Corsica, oh and the Tanker was at anchor.
Merchant vessels seem to be always running into each other or the shore. Not so many years ago they seemed to be running aground on the Westcountry coast with alarming regularity, and the mainstream national media hardly noticed. Yet the headline writers piss them themselves with excitement when a warship has a mishap.

That's going to take a lot of T-cut.


Seriously, I'd love to sit in on the interview with the the skipper of the Cotunav ship.

"So, you didn't see the other ship"
Errr no.
Really? It's 800feet long and 100ft high with lights on it.
Nope, didn't see it.
And your radar? You didn't notice it on radar?
We were watching Strictly on the radar screen
And the collision avoidance system?
Ah! We wondered what that noise was, thought chef had burned dinner again...
