From the mid 1970's the frigates of the PEDER SKRAM Class were refitted and rearmed with missile armament.

In 1979 the frigate HERLUF TROLLE had also been refitted and rearmed, and this album shows the first preparing and test launching of a Sea Sparrow Surface-to-Air-Missile (SAM) from the Mk29 Launcher mounted on the frigates quarterdeck.
