Nearly 30 naval and air units took part in this exercise, including frigates, logistic ships, minehunters, amphibious assault ships, submarines and maritime patrol aircraft from 10 different nations.

After the pre-sail conference held at ‘HMNB Clyde’ in Faslane on March 25th, the ‘Reina Sofía’ joined the other naval units to take part in a series of drills and tactical exercises prior to the second stage of the Exercise with advanced training activities in many naval fields: air, surface and submarine warfare.

The Spanish frigate participated in a VBSS exercise (visit, board, search and seizure) with a ‘Tercio de Armada’ Marine Cops squad with support from the ship’s SH-60B helicopter.

‘Joint Warrior 171’ was conducted in line with a Public Information and Intelligence Plan and, to this end, a group of civilian journalists embarked on the ship to interview and take pictures during the exercise.

After her participation in the different drills, frigate ‘Reina Sofía’ proceeded towards the port of Belfast along with other SNMG-1 warships. In the month of April, the Standing NATO Maritime Group One will organize several MSA (maritime situational awareness) operations in the Baltic and North Seas with naval units from other North European navies.
