World War II began for the Royal Norwegian Navy on April 8, 1940, when the German torpedo boat Albatross attacked the guard ship HNoMS Pol III.

The German invasion fleet heading for Oslo was significantly delayed when Oscarsborg fortress opened fire with its' two old 280 mm guns, followed by the 150 mm guns on Kopås on the eastern side of the Drøbak strait.
