Frigate ‘Reina Sofía’ (F-84) set sail to integrate into the Standing NATO Maritime Group One (SNMG-1) as part of this rapid reaction force deployed in Atlantic waters including the North and Baltic Seas.
During the two and a half-month mission, the Spanish frigate will conduct several training activities with other Allied units, among them exercise ‘Joint Warrior 171’ off the Scottish coast at the end of March.
With these deployments, European maritime areas are secured and the interests of the Alliance and Spain are likewise guaranteed.
‘Reina Sofía’ is the fourth of six ‘Santa María’-class frigates. With a crew of 180 people, the frigate has embarked an SH-60B helicopter with its support personnel, a Marine Corps security squad and medical personnel.
