According to the French Navy, the first integration of a FREMM in a US Navy CSG in a crisis area has posed no technical difficulties and demonstrates the remarkable interoperability of French and American navies.

During this period, the NH90NFH Caïman helicopter from Flotilla (French Navy helicopter wing) 33F from the French frigate transfered liaison officers from and to the US aircraft carrier.

According to the French Navy, the Multi-Mission Frigate (FREMM) Frigates are a centerpiece of the modernization of the Navy. They are a game changer in particular with their high technology, versatility and flexibility. The first ship of the class, Aquitaine, is based in Brest, Brittany (Western France).
