Weekly War

Exercise aboard Hr.Ms. Rotterdam. Ship is under rocketfire and attack from MIG-29 fighters causing severe damage aboard the vessel. When all technical communications systems fail after the bridge gets hit the crew face a challenge.

The Dutch Navy vessel Hr.Ms. Rotterdam and the 2nd Battalion Dutch Marines practice a widescale exercise off the southern coastal area of Great Britain. Its a first in which ship and Marines are tested and judged as an integrated amphibious unit. They train for their participation in NATO Response Forces and during this exercise they are scrutinized by the Flag Officer Sea Training (FROST) in Plymouth. It forms the traditional finale of a long preparation in advance of the real deal.
