October 22, 2020 (Google Translation) – Senegalese special forces and a detachment of French elements in Senegal trained to assault by force at sea on October 16, 2020 aboard the Amphibious Helicopter Carrier (PHA) Dixmude , off Dakar. This type of assault makes it possible, for example, to regain control of a ship plagued by acts of piracy.
After a week of specific training, the special forces at sea, quite recent in Senegal, were able to practice in real situations. At anchor and on the way, they were able to implement specific know-how, such as boarding, setting up means of crossing (ladders, etc.) and investigation techniques.
As part of the CORYMBE 154 mission, Dixmude regularly cooperates with foreign navies such as the Senegalese Navy. This type of exercise helps to develop cooperation and interoperability between two allied nations.
