Eight people were lightly injured in the collision in the Hjeltefjord near Bergen. The KNM Helge Ingstad frigate has been listing dangerously.

Norway has a warship?

Why?
 
2018-11-08 04:25:01 PM  
"Norway has evacuated all 137 crew from one of its warships after it collided in a fjord with a Maltese oil tanker."
I knew the F-150s could carry a lot of stuff, but a warship?!

/and did the accident reveal that the other crew was smuggling a falcon?

It's a little known fact, but Norway does not put names on their ships. While they do use a standardized number scheme (similar to how the USN does DDG 664, for example) those number are instead accompanied by a barcode. This is so when their ships get into port, Norway can Scandinavian.

They have a lot of coastline and share a lot of water with Russia?

They are heavily invested in oil and off shore drilling and have to share the North, Barents, and the Norwegian Sea with Russia.

Norway relies on the ocean for much of its economy - fishing and oil.
Norway is a traditional maritime power.
Norway is a member of NATO.
Norway has a border with farking Russia.

Enough answers for you?

Frigates with a lot of stealth characteristics are fairly commonplace nowadays.

Are you seriously this clueless?!? Have you never heard of vikings?!? They've had warships for thousands of years. It's also commonly understood scandinavians landed on North america easily 500 years before europeans.

To a lot of people, if they haven't heard of that country fighting an all-out war in their lifetime, then that country needs no military.

The Scandinavian countries have a clear need for naval and air forces, and have generally been exceptionally effective warriors. Hell, Finland fought the Germans AND the Soviets in WWII.

Time lapse of some tugs trying to keep it beached safely.  At about 40 seconds, the frigate starts to go, and the tugs all NOPE the hell up away from it.

I shouldn't laugh, but it was hysterical.

Does anyone under 60 drink it?  I've always heard it was just a granny drink.

They probably crashed because the two Norwegian captains couldn't understand their warnings, hollering at each other in Norwegian. I mean, have you ever tried to learn Norwegian?  It's hard.

I have only consumed it in large quantities with Swedish Americans in their 40's.Who were not grandparents.

One does not accidentally the whole hull.

I wonder if this was yet another game of military vs civilian nautical chicken.

Warship: "Get out of my way, I'm a big powerful military ship"
Guy in bar with handheld radio: "I'm a lighthouse, your call"
Tanker: "I am the stand on vessel in this scenario.  You should consider giving way"
warship: "Did I mention I'm also very self aggrandized?"
Tanker: "You're going to look real silly with this hull sticking out of your ass"

There were 4 warships maneuvering together, two of which were low-observable, it was 4am, and they were returning home from a major, multi-national fleet exercise. Probably a fairly unremarkable combination of poor visibility, crew fatigue, and crew overconfidence as part of a pack.
