Scurrying along the deck, Mr Monkey stopped beside a turret holding a Bofors 40mm anti-aircraft gun, to look back at the missiles again. These are Saab RB08A cruise missiles, with a range of 250km. The Swedes converted the French CT20 target drone into these missiles, which might have been a little naughty of them. Near the bow, Mr Monkey inspected the 375mm AURAK anti-submarine rockets. No-one explained why some were blue, and some green.
