HNoMS Trondheim (pennant number F302) was an Oslo-class frigate of the Royal Norwegian Navy.

Service history[]

On 17 March 2006 at 20:10 CET, Trondheim ran aground off Lines island in Sør-Trøndelag. No injuries among the 121-man crew were reported. The incident was reported from the ship itself, and at 20:30 it came loose again. Water flooded two compartments (paint storage and forward pump room) of the ship. The compartments were sealed and three ships were sent to assist the frigate.[1] The frigate was towed to port in Bergen by the coast guard vessel KV Tromsø.[2]

HNoMS Trondheim was used after decommissioning as a target ship. On 5 June 2013, she was severely damaged in a test of the Norwegian-designed Naval Strike Missile system off the coast of the island Andøya.[3]
