Danish Frigate “Iver Huitfeldt” Destroys Two Houthi Bogeys

This footage, provided by the Danish Navy, shows the frigate Iver Huitfeldt and crew shooting down two Houthi objects. It was not specified whether the objects were drones or missiles, but they were confirmed as splashed by the Danes.


Per a statement from the Danish government, the Iver Huitfeldt has completed its mission in the Red Sea and is returning home as of 02 April, 2024. This footage is from said mission, and shows the Iver Huitfeldt and crew partaking in Prosperity Guardian- the international effort to protect global trade from the Houthi rebels. The Houthi rebels continue to harass and interdict trade ships in response to the current Israeli conflict.


While they are known for stoicism and interrupting trade themselves (I had to make ONE Viking joke), the Danish sailors are enthusiastic when they shoot down the bogeys. The term ‘bogey’ applies because it was not specifically disclosed whether the objects shot down were drones or missiles. In any case, the pleasure in a high-stakes, complicated job well done seems to know no borders, and the lives of civilian merchant sailors are more safely kept, one shootdown at a time.
