 Hi guys.

      German Navy Frigate SACHSEN F219. During exercices at North Sea, one SM-2 missile explode  
      on the fore deck after the failure of the vertical launcher (the missile did not leave  
      the silo where it is housed ). The launcher's shield prevented major damage. There are 2
      injured crew members and significant material-structural damage in the affected area.  
      Incident happened 2 weeks ago. The photo shows the moment of the huge explosion.

      MBregards.
