March 15, 2021 (Google Translation) – “The contact is good, classified POSSUB 2! “. The anti-submarine warfare officer transfers contact to the rest of the force, while the helicopter takes off from the helicopter platform. The sensors of the multi-mission frigate (FREMM) Auvergne and its Caiman once again show their formidable efficiency and will allow the vessel, along with the other ships of the force, to keep the submarine in check.
Deployed in the Eastern Mediterranean, Auvergne is indeed engaged in the NOBLE DINA 21 exercise, organized by the Israeli navy from March 8 to 10, 2021. This exercise brings together Israeli, Greek, Cypriot and French units, including two submarines. Articulated around various exercises in anti-submarine and anti-ship warfare, maneuver, search and rescue at sea (SAR), it aims to raise the level of interoperability of the various participants and to strengthen the links between already the marines.
Auvergne’s participation testifies to the high level of cooperation and confidence that France maintains with its regional partners to contribute to the security and stability of the Mediterranean basin.
