The Atlantic Ocean (Jun. 11, 2002) -- British frigate HMS Richmond (F-239) launches an AGM-84A Harpoon missile during a joint U.S. and British exercise in which the decommissioned ship USS Wainwright was sunk in the Atlantic Ocean. Ships used in these types of exercises are inspected and made environmentally safe before sinking, and are disguised to create reefs for marine life.
