RCN Public Affairs, 06 March 2021.

TGEX 21-01 wrapped up on February 19, and was a tremendous success. The exercise saw HMCS Victoria return to sea and complete its Basic Single Submarine Readiness Training, signalling its return to normal readiness after being in extended readiness since September 2020. The TGEX included anti-aircraft warfare exercises that involved Vindicator drones, at which HMC Ships Regina and Calgary fired a total of four Evolved Sea Sparrow Missiles. The engagement also increased the interoperability of the Royal Canadian Navy (RCN) with its partners and friends from the U.S. Coast Guard and Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF).

HMCS Calgary, along with it’s embarked Cyclone helicopter and embedded Naval Tactical Operations Group boarding party,has departed on Op PROJECTION Asia-Pacific, and is making its way to the Indian Ocean and Arabian Sea to participate in Op ARTEMIS as part of Combined Task Force 150, currently under the command of Cmdre Dan Charlebois.
