Royal Canadian and U.S. Navy ships will participate in a Task Force Exercise (TFEX) off the coast of Virginia and the Carolinas, beginning Feb. 23.

Exercise participants from the Royal Canadian Navy include Commander, Canadian Fleet Atlantic; the Tribal-class destroyer HMCS Athabaskan (DDG 282); and, the Halifax-class frigate HMCS Montreal (FFH 336).

U.S. Navy units include Commander, Destroyer Squadron (CDS) 26 and the Arleigh Burke-class destroyers USS Porter (DDG 78) and USS Bainbridge (DDG 96).

Led by Carrier Strike Group (CSG) 4, TFEX serves as a deployment certification exercise for Porter, Bainbridge and Montreal and includes realistic training scenarios that test the ability of the ships to react to perform as an integrated unit.
