Rumours tells all the armements have been removed and are now in Paris. Sold to the french police, to provide adequate response to troublesome peasants invading the capital.

But another rumour says they are sold to the peasants, to help provide access to the Elysée and take care of a troublesome president.

lol

Explanation emerges for why it got flooded (incl. generators and engines) so quickly, the ships of these class are fitted with a hollow propeller shaft. So damage to the shaft allowed water to flow inside shaft and emerge here and there, passing through any existing watertighting system. Now the Norwegians and Spanish are quarelling about who is responsible for the construction choices defects.

But a great solution has been found :O) they have put some inflatable plastic bags inside the propeller shaft, to (possibly) block water ingress. So these 1\2 billion euros ships needs some pieces of plastic to save them from built-in sinking properties. lol.

Sounds like someone'll be going into hiding for such a cock-up, I wouldn't want to be the engineer who came up with that design right now... :-rofl2

Salvage\lifting still on hold, with date 'next year'. Seems nobody knows how to do it.

Some pictures. A few days with a screwdriver and hammer + some paint and all will be well lol

Good, I'll pop over in a coracle with some pliers in the New Year, distract the military police and you get half the booty.
