French Navy: Cassard Returns Home. Forbin Takes Its Place

In late April the French Navy’s frigate Cassard (D 614) concluded its mission in central and eastern Mediterranean.

Cassard was collecting valuable information in the Mediterranean, as well as building relationships with navies present in the area.

The vessel left its homeport of Toulon on March 20 for this 40-day deployment during which it patrolled an area of over 7900 nautical miles and visited four ports. The vessel strengthened ties with Lebanon, Israel, Turkey and Greece.

Cassard returned to Toulon and frigate Forbin (D620) took its place in the eastern Mediterranean.
