Very interesting and balanced assessment of an exercise in the Gulf of Guinea from a German observer describing the successes and failures in attempting coordination between nations with long held suspicions and distrust.
Former USCG 378 figures prominently in an accompanying photo.
This is an important, but difficult area to work in. Fractured politically, the exercise included 23 nations. This was a US sponsored exercise, but it had substantial European participation.
Nice to see an honest exercise report, that is more than all sweetness and light.
