The advanced Danish warship faced multiple weapon issues while confronting the Houthis

In recent news, Denmark’s most advanced corvette, Iver Huitfeldt, faced several technical issues during a campaign in the Red Sea. According to OLFI newspaper, Lieutenant Colonel Sune Lund, commander of the corvette, sent an internal message to superiors detailing these problems. The corvette was on duty for three months to respond to the Houthis and protect international maritime routes in the Red Sea.

The corvette encountered difficulties with its APAR radar specialized in fire control and the C-Flex combat management system, which prevented it from firing long-range air defense missiles within 30 minutes. Additionally, the 76 mm artillery shells on board were damaged during the mission.

Lieutenant Colonel Lund expressed concern over the safety implications of using unstable shells in the warship’s ammunition depot. The Danish Ministry of Defense has initiated an investigation into the corvette’s combat activities in the Red Sea but has not confirmed the details reported by media.

This incident with Iver Huitfeldt is not unique as European warships face challenges while responding to threats in the Red Sea. For instance, Germany’s advanced missile guard ship Sachsen experienced a misfire when it launched missiles at a suspicious UAV, resulting in a costly mistake. These incidents highlight that modern warships face significant difficulties and risks during combat operations.
