German Navy to Test Asymmetric Weapons

Former  FGS Karlsruhe

NavalToday reports that the 33 year old former FGS Karlsruhe, a now decommissioned 3,680 ton frigate, will be used in a live weapons test.

What makes this test unique is,

“According to the German news site Kieler Nachrichten, the navy also plans to asses how asymmetric threats affect the ship. For these tests, the navy plans to use smaller weapons and rockets as they are used by terrorists and pirates.”

I hope we will get access to the results and will apply lessons learned to our new construction.
