President Sauli Niinistö has called for further clarification on suspected Russian interference with aviation GPS signals during recent Nato military exercises, which were partly based in Finnish Lapland.

“We must find out how the interference was done and who did it. I believe that there are technical devices that should be able to determine the source of the interference, and then [we should] express our views on it, even quite firmly,” Niinistö told Yle after World War I commemoration events in Paris.

I'm sure the Russians were also to blame for the Norwegians sinking their own brand new frigate by crashing it into a tanker. {mischief}

That's impressive! I wonder if an 800ft 175k tonne tanker is the largest object to go unnoticed since the Titanic's bar got a very fresh delivery of ice?

Back to the GPS interference, by pure coincidence our current featured shot is this beauty that is designed to detect the source of just such acts of interference:

A million great ideas...

We get notices about the my government testing out GPS interference devices over here, late at night, with ranges up to 300nm. :))

Blast those Russians!

Yep, nothing new. It happens as well over the eastern Med as well.

LCCC FIR A0356/18 - RECENTLY, GPS SIGNAL INTERRUPTIONS HAVE BEEN REPORTED BY THE PILOTS OF THE AIRCRAFT OPERATING WITHIN SOME PARTS OF NICOSIA FIR. AIRCRAFT OPERATORS OPERATING WITHIN NICOSIA FIR ARE ADVISED TO EXERCISE CAUTION. 20 MAR 10:04 2018 UNTIL PERM. CREATED: 20 MAR 10:05 2018

Back to off-topic :))

After the Norwegians had successfully smashed their frigate into that tanker, they felt that the fail was not strong enough yet.

They decided to moor the ship, so that they could assess the damage some time later.

This is how you properly moor a ship:

This is how the Norwegians did it:

The result:

Still not enough fail yet?

Literally next door to the wreck is Sotra Anchor and Chains, a big producer of heavy duty chains, used for example to raise the Costa Concordia. But for some reason the navy went for these weaker and wrongly mounted wires instead.

WTF?!? Do these sailors in Northern Europe get up at 11AM and forget who they are by nightfall? Oh wait {boxed} :))

^There's even a pretty good mnemonic for that: Never saddle a dead horse. The saddle of the clip goes on the working end of the eye, not the dead end. That's some pretty dang basic rigging stuff right there, but I wish I could tell you how many times I've seen it done wrong. I guess the sailors in question don't know their rigging. What with never having had to use a . . . oh . . . a sail, I guess they're called.
