    That's no problem. Wasn't one of the old Oslo Class frigates unable to go in a straight line, after it got bent out of shape after a whops on a skerry?

    "I think we could all do with sitting back a bit and detaching ourselves from the situation to really think about how these issues reflect on our future and how we discuss them here and be a bit less aggressive or defensive because everyone has a complicated set of circumstances that has led the to place importance on particular issues and it doesn't meany any of them is less valid, we just need to look at the broader picture"

    you are bad and should feel bad, the hull number is right there.
    Viking, n.:
    1. Daring Scandinavian seafarers, explorers, adventurers, entrepreneurs world-famous for their aggressive, nautical import business, highly leveraged takeovers and blue eyes.
    2. Bloodthirsty sea pirates who ravaged northern Europe beginning in the 9th century.

    Hagar's note: The first definition is much preferred; the second is used only by malcontents, the envious, and disgruntled owners of waterfront property.

    ship pennants have been around since 1661 with the practice of flat out painting numbers on warship sides, typically near the bow, dating to around the start of the dreadnought arms race to make it easier to sort out what bits of your fleet was actually what type of ship when trying to conduct manoeuvrers at sea and prevent silly stuff like sending Battlecruisers to fight Battleships and have them summarily blow up as a result. (not that it prevented Beatty from doing that)

    this is the HDMS Absalon, the L16 gives it away, with the L classification being used by the HDMS to denote combat capable support ships (former L ships include mine layers and armed submarine tenders)


    this in turn is HDMS Espen Snare, note the L17


    this in turn is the Iver Huitfeldt class air defence frigate F362 Peter Willemoes, it's build on the same hull as the Absalon class, but get's a F designator as it's a combat frigate.


    this in turn is the HDMS F357 Thetis class Thetis patrol frigate, these operate in the arctic around greenland and their primary function is soverignity maintence and support activites for local authorities, but because they're equipped and armed as combat vessels, they get a F designation.


    smaller combat vessels get P designation, patrol and inspection ships, torpedo boats, fast attack craft and so forth while non-combatant ships gets A designations for general purpose vessels, Y designations for environmental protection vessels and non-combatant training vessels and MVH for marine home guard vessels.

    even the royal Yatch, Dannebrog has a pennant number, in that case it's A540.

    again, it's just quicker to give a name and a date or a wikipedia entry

    not sure why asking for more info, so people (stupid people like me) can read more is so painful

    The pictures are actually from the wikipedia page for the Wisconsin, and I though that would be a give away. But I'll put the name next to it next time, to spare you the pain ...
