HMCS Halifax, Athabaskan Depart for NATO Exercises

HMCS Halifax

Two Royal Canadian Navy ships left Halifax Harbour on Tuesday to join NATO exercises overseas. 

HMCS Athabaskan and HMCS Halifax will train while travelling across the Atlantic to take part in multinational military exercises dubbed Joint Warrior and Trident Juncture.

Both ships will take part in both exercises, which include training on command, intelligence surveillance and reconnaissance at an international level.

HMCS Fredericton participated in the U.K.-led Joint Warrior in late April, according to NATO’s website.

Trident Juncture involves 36,000 personnel from 30 nations. The exercise will certify the staff at Joint Force Command Brunssum in the Netherlands to lead any joint task force operations in international conflicts until the end of next year.
