It was basically a write-off within a day of the accident, but nobody higher up would dare to say so and hardly have since then.

Nah, bit of body filler and touch up paint, it will be fine.

They will do battle damage research that might turn this into a very fortunate event for NATO.

A couple parts will be useful as spare parts.

The hull might end in a SINKEX by 2021 or so.

It ought to be a good platform for damage control exercises for the crews of the other ships in the class. An expensive platform, that is. But already paid for...

Is there any immediate prospect of anyone being brought to book over this? A good blood eagling or two might be just what the Viking navy needs to get back into shape.

 

A sad loss, but im still seeing it as a positive she didnt take anyone with her. She did her job, even if the people commanding her didnt.

Way too early to say yet, the continued investigation will take months.

The USN 'salved and recommissioned' a couple of destroyers after Pearl Harbor by simply taking the hulks to the W Coast and quietly renaming class ships under construction, taking a few choice sections from the old into the new.

true but those were much simpler ships then.

 

 

I bet all the electronics of the Helge Ingstad are trashed. Which are the most expensive part of the ship.

Im not so sure. There was a good documentary on about a cargo ship that capsized in Norway, and the forensic team were able to recover the ships onboard computers and revive them, to see what data they were processing at the time the ship capsized. They were underwater for several weeks as well.

 

I suppose the problem is, a ship as sophisticated as this, the cost of reviving all the electronic systems would probably exceed the cost of buying new ones. Assuming any new vessels are in the offing.

There's a big difference between getting something up and running enough to pull data off of a hard disk and getting it running well enough to be able to rely on it in a wartime situation.

Well, now, which is more expensive to build?

 

Electronics suite

Propulsion machinery

Hull, superstructure

Weapons

etc.

 

Each of these have different salvage potential.
