The surface combatants conducted a series of tactical exercise together inlcuding:
LINKEX (communication and data link exercise)
Crossdeck (including French and US Navy sailors swapping between vessels)
ADEX (air defence exercise with some of the Stennis' F-18 fighters)

These exercises allow French Navy and US Navy crews to increase the interoperability of the vessels and enhance the mutual understanding of each other.

The surveillance frigate Vendemiaire left her base of Noumea on March 17, 2016. She is under the operational control of ALPACI (Commander of French Navy Pacific Fleet) since April 1st. Her deployment in Asia Pacific is part of the mission to ensure a French presence in the area. It allows to underline the commitment of France to the freedom of navigation at sea and in the air and to strengthen cooperation with neighboring countries through interactions at sea or in port.
