Southern Ocean?

Does anyone know the story behind this video?
There must be more than 46 seconds of it out there somewhere!

Very impressive but......

Some of those camera shots were from a suspiciously stable platform, some even from sea level so either there's a damned good chopper pilot (and one that's got pretty big cojones) or there's a bit of cgi trickery going on. If the shots were from another boat they put themselves directly ahead of the target boat, not wise in those conditions.

Also the camera always stays perfectly dry...... Hmm

I smell a rat, or a film studio.

Prettyy impressive all the same.

Would like to know if it's genuine?
Someone said it's a French Navy,Georges Leygues class frigate!
But the camera work is nearly too perfect.
Hell of a sea!
