Spanish Navy’s Vessels Leave for NATO’s Active Endeavour Op

The Spanish Navy’s vessels SPS Canarias (F86) and SPS Patiño A14 deployed for NATO’s Operation Active Endeavour on January 26.

The vessels deployed from Rota Naval Base, and are expected to take part in the operation during February. They will be integrated in Standing NATO Maritime Group 2 (SNMG2).

Operation Active Endeavour efforts started in 2001 and include fighting terrorism in the Mediterranean Sea.

SPS Canarias (F86), is the last of the six Spanish-built Santa Maria-class frigates, based on the American Oliver Hazard Perry-class design, of the Spanish Navy. SPS Patiño A14 is a replenishment oiler of the Spanish Navy.
