Navy “Sinkex” exercises are when our Navy see what it takes to sink a ship. They either sink it themselves or in conjunction with other nations as part of training exercises.
The ex-USS Ogden (LPD 5) & ex-USS Tuscaloosa (LST 1187) are fired upon by harpoon missiles from the Republic of Korea (ROKS) submarine LeeSunSin (SS 068) and by a Naval Strike Missile (NSM) from the Royal Norwegian Navy frigate HNoMS Fridtjof Nansen (F 310) during a SINKEX as part of Rim of the Pacific (RIMPAC) Exercise 2014.
