HMCS Winnipeg, currently deployed to the Asia-Pacific region on Operation Projection, participated in an annual exercise in the Philippine Sea from November 21-30.

In addition to the Royal Canadian Navy (RCN), participating navies included the Royal Australian Navy, German Navy, the Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force and the U.S. Navy.

An opportunity to enhance interoperability, the exercise focused on areas such as enhanced maritime communications tactics, anti-submarine warfare operations, air warfare operations, replenishments-at-sea, cross-deck flight operations and maritime interdiction manoeuvers.

“The Royal Canadian Navy is proud to be part of this significant exercise that serves to enhance interoperability and integration among allied and partner nations,” said Commander Doug Layton, Commanding Officer of HMCS Winnipeg.

“Our combined efforts during Annualex help to build confidence in operating with one another and maintain the highest levels of readiness between like-minded navies.”
