Norway Navy

Norwegian Navy: Norway's Navy is small but built specifically to operate within the confined and turbulent waters of the North Sea along its rocky and mountainous coastline.

Frigates: The Oslo Class are small Frigates but have recently been modernized (late 80's) and are capable of a wide range of general duties.

Corvettes: Dating from the same era as the Oslo class but with the exception of an improved sonar installed in the late 80's, the two Sleipner class Corvettes are largely obsolete and used as training ships.

Fast Attack Craft: The most numerous type of ship in the Norwegian navy. The mountainous and fjord rich coastline provides excellent hiding ground for fast and dangerous craft.

Submarines: Because of the proximity to the Soviet Union, the confined waters and rugged coastlines the Norwegian Navy operated in, the key method of defending was stealth and ambush. The numerous FAC listed above were one method of achieving this tactic, submarines were another.

Ula Class Submarine: Built in Germany and known as the Type 210 class, having improvements over the very popular Type 209 class. All six boats were commissioned between 1989 and 1992 and therefore represent some of the most modern submarines available at the start of Northern Fury. These are very stealthy and dangerous boats which would give any enemy surface combatants pause to consider the dangers in Norwegian waters.

Kobben Class: These submarines were also built in Germany as the Type 207 class and were an improved version of the Type 205 class. In total 15 boats were delivered to Norway between 1964 and 1967. Due to age, accidents and decommissioning, 8 remain in service at the start of Northern Fury.

Norwegian Coast Guard: The Coast Guard is part of the Navy and takes responsibility for fisheries and shipping inspection, customs and law enforcement, boarder control, environmental protection and search and rescue. Although it is a small force its wide ranging scope keeps it quite busy. To handle much of the day to day coastal work. there are ten small patrol ships of less than 1000 tones, seven of them are chartered, each has 1x 40mm Bofors gun. The one class of larger ships is the Nordkapp class.

Nordkapp Class: These three Outer Coast Guard Ships, otherwise called Offshore Patrol Vessels (OPV) are 3300 tones, the size of a Frigate, but have fewer weapons or sensors. Their hulls are strengthened to withstand limited ice crushing, or ice browsing. Although it only carries a 57mm gun and machine guns, it can be fitted with Depth Charges, Penguin anti-ship missiles, torpedoes, 20mm guns and Mistral SAMs in wartime. The peacetime crew is 52 plus 6 for the air detachment, its wartime establishment is 76 and it has bunk space for 109. They each carry a Lynx helicopter, primarily for SAR.
