Over the weekend, the Danish frigate F 363 Niels Juel, together with other NATO frigates of the 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 363 Niels Juel is crossing the Kiel Fjord and is ambushed at the Friedrichsorter Narrows at the Friedrichsort lighthouse.
Soldiers from the KSM Marine Special Forces Command with several Boomranger speedboats had positioned themselves on both sides of the Kiel Fjord and were waiting for the Danish Iver-Huitfeldt-class frigate F 363 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 Royal Danish Navy’s F 363 frigate disappeared on the Baltic Sea.
