On 29th September, Italian warship, ITS Libeccio, conducted a joint exercise with Royal Omani Navy warship, RON Al Rahmani, during a port visit to Salalah.
At the start of the exercise, the Italian and Omani Navy boarding teams demonstrated their respective tactical procedures, including the way in which their boarding teams would identify and search a suspect vessel.
The second phase of the exercise, which was conducted at sea, saw both ITS Libeccio and RON Al Rahmani performing ship manoeuvres, which provided excellent training for the ships’ bridge teams.
These types of exercises strengthen cooperation, mutual understanding and friendship between the Royal Omani Navy and the EU Naval Force.
