Moment of Impact: Norwegian Navy’s Target Practice With Long-Range Missile [VIDEO]

Here is a video showing the explosive moment the Norwegian navy blew up one of its own ships to test out their latest long-range missile.

The KNM Trondheim, a 300ft long decommissioned frigate, was transported out into the sea off the coast of Andoy to be used as the target.

This dramatic footage just 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 and the moment of impact captured by an onboard camera.

PS-We saw some snippets of this video yesterday but new details and a compilation warranted a second post… I think.
