On board the Tonnerre and Mistral amphibious helicopter carriers (PHA), the individual Combat enhanced training (CET) and collective training, Force Integration Training (FIT), have mobilized all the different players in an air combat raid since sea. This maneuver made it possible to perfect the complementary tactical know-how of the French Navy and the Army.
