Royal Navy Members Train aboard USS Harry S. Truman

Representatives from the UK’s Royal Navy embarked aboard the aircraft carrier USS Harry S. Truman (CVN 75) for an international training opportunity, Sept. 11-13.

The visit served to strengthen global ties while helping prepare the U.K. for the launch of their new Queen Elizabeth-class carriers.

During their visit, the Royal Navy representatives witnessed a variety of Truman’s evolutions, from flight deck operations to strike group coordination. Royal Air Force Commodore Harv Smyth, F-35 Lightning Force Commander for the Royal Air Force and Royal Navy, said seeing the crew tackle different training scenarios helped to draw parallels for the new carriers.

As Truman moves toward its turn on the front lines, preparing to fight and win at sea, more opportunities for integrated training may arise.
