Commander Combined Task Force 150 (CCTF-150) visited Her Majesty’s New Zealand Ship (HMNZS) Te Kaha, an Anzac class frigate.
The vessel is currently attached to the Combined Maritime Forces (eCMF), in the Indian Ocean. The successful visit was followed up with a replenishment at sea between HMNZS Te Kaha and the CTF-150 flagship, French Ship (FS) VAR.
Captain René-Jean Crignola, CCTF-150 and members of his staff headed to Te Kaha, on her Seasprite helicopter. It also gave the opportunity for members of Te Kaha crew to visit Var, and familiarise themselves with the CTF-150 flagship.
CTF-150 is a team of nations who work together to enhance maritime security. Ships, aircraft and their crew working together make CTF-150 more effective than any ship, aircraft or country working alone. The CTF’s primary area of responsibility is maritime security and counter-terrorism.
