I was on board the Imsalv Lion during this salvage. The Havglimt was attacked at night by a warship and we were warned to keep clear till they'd completed the attack. There was a helicopter around as well as I recall. I taped the prior interrogation of the Havglimt on Ch16 VHF and videoed the attack. Her cargo was ammonia and she had a hole blown in the hull. We were almost asphyxiated on the tug as we pulled alongside..we got a decent salvage bonus :-)

It's a pity she's broken up in Gadani Beach, Pacific was a beautiful tug...
