CNS Almirante Montt Supports War on Drugs

November 25, 2020 (Google Translation) – The activities were carried out within the framework of the support that the Chilean Navy Unit is providing to the US Navy and Coast Guard in terms of operations to interdict illicit trafficking.

In the framework of operations in support of the Joint Interagency Task Force South (JIATF-S), the AO-53 “Almirante Montt” tanker traveled to international waters off the Gulf of Fonseca, whose border is shared by the countries from El Salvador, Honduras and Nicaragua, to carry out a fuel delivery maneuver at sea to the United States Navy destroyer, USS William P. Lawrence.

Later, and always in international waters but this time in the Gulf of Nicoya in Costa Rica, the Chilean Navy Unit resupplied the North American Coast Guard ship USCG “James”, giving it spare parts and fuel.

After this action, the Oil Tanker “Montt” returned to the port of Balboa in Panama to refuel and face a new cycle of logistical support for the vessels participating in JIATF-S.
