EU NAVFOR’s Spanish Warship ESPS Patiño met up on the 23rd December, with CTF151 Pakistan Warship PNS Tippu Sultan, to continue counter-piracy operations at sea off the Somali Coast.Their cooperation in this major maritime trade route is no coincidence. To maintain durability and a presence even through the festive season, the respective counter-piracy missions still work together to ensure these vital sea lanes remain open and free from piracy. On this occasion the ESPS Patiño used its capability as an oiler to refuel the PNS Tippu Sultan whilst at sea to ensure the deterrence to repress piracy remains. The ESPS Patiño also has a SH-60 Sea King helicopter, which can be used for a multitude of purposes when deployed. PNS Tippu Sultan is currently tasked as part of Combined Task Force 151, a Combined Maritime Forces counter-piracy mission commanded from Bahrain. PHOTOS - EU NAVFOR
