NATO mine counter measure group visits Bar, Montenegro

Ships deployed to NATO’s Mine Counter Measures Group Two (SNMCMG2) arrived in Bar, Montenegro, for a port call on February 23.

Led by Royal Navy Commander Justin Hains, the group arrived in Montenegro after sailing from Marmaris, Turkey last week.

The task group consists of the flagship HMS Enterprise (a Royal Navy survey vessel), TCG Akcay (a Turkish mine hunter) and ESPS Segura (a Spanish mine hunter).

Prior to the visit to Bar, the group patrolled both the Black Sea and the Mediterranean Sea, conducting mine hunting exercises and maritime security operations throughout the region.

SNMCMG2 is one of four groups of ships which make up the maritime part of the NATO Reaction Force. The groups take part in different multinational exercises and train with NATO member states, allies and partners to enhance interoperability and maintain warfighting skills.
