HMNZS Te Kaha Exercises With French Navy Aircraft

During a surveillance flight of the French Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ), a crew of the 25F detachment of the Armed Forces in New Caledonia (FANC) collaborated with the New Zealand frigate Te Kaha .

During this anti-aircraft warfare exercise, aimed at training the frigate in New Zealand anti-missile defense, the Gardian maritime surveillance aircraft played the aggressors by simulating numerous attacks. Thanks to its speed and maneuverability, it was able to vary its offensive passes, at high or very low altitude, forcing the vessel to maneuver to dodge the fictitious attack.

This exercise illustrates the cooperation that exists between the FANC and the New Zealand armed forces and helps maintain a high level of training for both partners.
