My mom found an old picture book of Norway, a picture book of Norway, printed in 1942.

In that book there was an picture of the Norwegian City "Harstad". in that picture there was an hospital ship, but a fast look determined that, that ship had a totally different task before it become a hospital ship. Norway had only two Ships with those lines in the Navy, so out of that I knew it must be HNoMS Viking, I googled it and confirmed it.

Picture from the 74 year old book! we have it here at my home:

How HNoMS Viking looked like in it's old days (around 115-125 years ago)

We had quit nice weather yesterday.....

One of the rescue vessel went out to find a missing person, but the person was found, but the rescue vessel had a little accident, at one point a massive wave hit the rescue vessel, and broke one of the windows on the vessel, she ruled around two times, for then starting to burn (probably due to water in contact with electricity.), in the end they had to leave the ship.

This vessel design have had tens of thousands of rescue mission out in bad weather, so why this happend are still unknown for the rescue company, and they are now investigate the accident, to see if there might be some weakness in this type of rescue vessel. Due to they was designed to withstand this type of weather.


At the moment, this is how she is laying, waiting for better weather.

Since the news of that Norway are going to retire Skjold class in 2025 instead of paying for the expensive MLU upgrade in 2025, but there is still hope, there are many years until 2025 and there is an high chance for a new government by then, and National and international situation can still changes. I decided there is need for an awesome photo of one of the Skjold class vessel, here with HNoMS Glimt:

[ img ]


The argument from the Navy, on why they want to keep the class, is:
- they are fast responding.
- they can operation in an .... area for a week+.
- they can deliver up to 8 advanced anti "ship and land" missile at any target.
- for F35 to deliver 8 missile (NSM), you need 4 F35 and then additional some escort, and for a country with only 52 F35... and when you have 6 skjold class.... you need the entire air force and a little more, just to match the entire skjold class when it comes to NSM-firepower.
- Every time a Russian or other Nation naval vessel traveling close to the Norwegian economy zone, a Skjold class is always out there first, for then at some point hand the "escort-mission" to larger surface vessel.

An former Commander, gave an example on how dangerous small, fast and hard detecting vessel can be. When he was a Captain of the old Oslo class frigates and under any type off exercise where they are operating close to the cost. they would lose 9 out of 10 battle against MTB's and it was always over in minutes. Skjold class do something similar but at range.


But I do agree with the government, they are expensive to operate.... they have 20.000 hp (same as Oslo class frigates) gas turbines, and additional around 1000-2000 hp fans, just to lift the ship when moving. But on the other hand, they are probably one of the most dangerous vessel to meet in a battle.

This is probably one of the last time we see the Norwegian Navy are out on tour with more than 2 ship at once. after 2020 all those Skjold class on the picture, are gone.... :(


Pictures from Flotex 16:

in this picture, if they are fully armed, we see:

- 9 X 76 mm guns
- 224-256 ESSM missiles
- 72 NSM
- 16 torpedo tubes
- 4 advance radars and 5 lighter 3D radars
- 26 12.7 mm machine guns
- 8 LRAD
- etc.

or as Americans will call it... a single destroyer

I wonder how the Norwegian Navy of 2025 will look like, if not a new government get some new ideas.... ;)
