A former Royal Navy frigate was sunk in spectacular fashion during a live-fire exercise off Pakistan, as Mail Online reports.

HMS Active was commissioned in 1977 and saw active duty in the Falklands War among other missions before being sold to Pakistan in 1994 and renamed the PNS Shah Jahan.

The Type 21 frigate went out in a hail of firepower earlier this month as one of a number of targets used in a drill by the Pakistan Navy in the North Arabian Sea.
