Sinking a Navy Frigate with Missiles and Torpedoes – SINKEX Sinking Exercise
With the United States Navy, as you could probably imagine, practice is of the utmost importance given what these guys are protecting in their line of work.
However, while practicing, simulated situations can only go so far and sometimes, some real life experience can spell out the difference between a win and a loss.
This time, we check out a video of a live fire training exercise known as “SINKEX” that takes a decommissioned Frigate and allows the use of live rounds to send it to the bottom of the ocean.
Check out the video below as gunnery, torpedo accuracy, and missile drills are practiced on a boat that takes one heck of a beating before taking on water.
