Picture gallery Frigate F 333 Bartolomeus Dias leaves the naval base in Kiel through the Kiel Fjord towards the Baltic Sea on April 3, 2023.

Over the weekend, the Portuguese frigate F 333 Bartolomeus Dias, together with other NATO frigates of Standing NATO Maritime Group 1 (SNMG 1), were guests at the naval base in Kiel. On Monday morning the association left the Kiel naval port for the Baltic Sea.
Here the frigate F 333 Bartolomeus Dias is crossing the Kiel Fjord and is ambushed at the Friedrichsorter Enge lighthouse in Friedrichsort.

Soldiers from the KSM Special Forces Command of the Navy with several Boomranger speedboats had positioned themselves on both sides of the Kiel Fjord and waited for the Portuguese frigate F 333 of the Bartolomeus Dias class to carry out a mock attack on the frigate. The crew of the frigate “defended” itself with shots against the attackers of the KSM, whereby of course only blank cartridges were used. A few minutes later the exercise was over and the Portuguese Navy’s F 333 frigate disappeared on the Baltic Sea.
