The two fregates F362 (Peter Willemoes) and F363 (Niels Juel) from the Royal Danish Navy sailed to a location northwest of Scotland to test the ESSM missiles onboard F362 along with its APAR radar that guides the missiles. ESSM is used for protection against attacking missiles and aircrafts.
The helicopter onboard F363 was used to scan the area for any unwanted 'onlookers' who might get too close to the test.
The hangar and helo deck onboard F362 was used for the launch of the target drones. F362 will be the first of the three Iver Huitfeldt class fregates to become fully operational.
New guns and helicopters are coming in the near future.
