This was the helicopter cross deck operation that took place during the sea phase of Ex Maritime Cooperation 2015. This inaugural exercise involved our Formidable-class frigate, RSS Intrepid and Victory-class missile corvette, RSS Valiant, and the Jiangkai II-class frigate, CNS Yulin from the People’s Liberation Army (Navy).
In addition to this helicopter cross deck operation, the sea phase also saw the two navies engaging in conventional naval warfare serials such as gunnery firings and manoeuvring drills, before concluding the exercise with a sail past.
Through the exercise serials, the crew from the two navies learned from one another and enhanced interoperability out at sea, affirming our defence relationship and forging closer friendship.
