German Navy tanker ‘Spessart’ had to be towed home from UK waters after experiencing problems with its engine during the Joint Warrior drill off Scotland.

The 40-year-old ship broke down on March 27 and the extent of damage is yet to be determined, German Kieler Nachrichten reported.

Spessart withdrew not only from the international exercise off Scotland, but also from NATO’s Standing Maritime Group 1 (SNMG1), to which the ship was deployed since January this year. The tanker was not supposed to return home before May, 2017.
