visited ”one of the world's most advanced warships”: F-361 IVER HUITFELDT, a
frigate which currently conducts anti piracy operations close to the coast of
Somalia. Watch the video here and read more.

is a direct evolution of the Absalon class. Based on the same hull, the
frigates are much more powerful – Absalons have two 8,200 kW MTU
diesels, the frigates have four such engines. Frigates also
have a lower profile (having dispensed with the Absalon's internal vehicle
deck). By reusing the basic hull design of the Absalon class
the Royal Danish Navy has been able to construct
the Iver Huitfeldt class considerably cheaper than comparable ships.

the Absalon class ships are primarily
designed for command and support roles, with a large ro-ro
(roll-on, roll-off) deck, the three new Iver
Huitfeldt frigates are equipped for an air defence role with
Standard Missiles, and the potential to use Tomahawk cruise missiles, a first for
the Danish Navy.
2012-2013 Denmark contributes with IVER HUITFELDT in NATO's anti piracy
Operation OCEAN SHIELD. The air defence ship can operate in most of the world.
