From the Red Sea to the Mediterranean through the Suez Canal, first ship of the class HMS Daring destroyer's role was to provide the French aircraft carrier close and anti-air protection alongside the Horizon class air warfare destroyer Forbin.

During the mission, the British sailors conducted several maneuvers alongside their French counterparts to strengthen their ability to operate at the heart of a carrier group. Thus, several ADEX (Air Defense Exercises) were conducted which benefit both jet pilots (Super Etendard Modernisé and Rafale M) and sailors in charge of the anti-aircraft protection of the aircraft carrier group.

HMS Daring attachement to the "Gobal French Navy Strike Force" confirms the usefulness of incremental cooperation between the first two European navies.

T he Type 45 is an Anti-Air Warfare Destroyer conceived to protect UK and allied/coalition forces at sea and in the littoral against the full range of enemy aircraft and anti-ship missiles.
