In one week, the ship has operated a US Navy and US Marine Corps helicopter as well as all three types of Royal Navy helicopter.
Lieutenant Commander Jason White, the Principle Warfare Officer on board HMS Dragon,said:
“Our sensors are highly sophisticated and provide plenty of information about the
operating environment. The challenge we have is in adapting our procedures to make the most out of our mutual capabilities.”
