- Military bosses used 300ft long decommissioned frigate for target practice
- Fired new 880lb missile at the vessel off coast of Andoy
- Frightening footage from on-board camera captures moment of impact
This is the explosive moment the Norwegian navy blew up one of its own ships to test out their latest long-range stealth missile.
The KNM Trondheim, a 300ft long decommissioned frigate, was transported out into the sea off the coast of Andoy to be used as target practice.
Dramatic footage released by military bosses captures the countdown before the new ‘Naval Strike Missile’ – a four-metre long, 880lb weapon – is fired in the direction of the vessel.
