Australia has sent a particularly large contingent, second only to that of the US, a destroyer, two frigates, and an oiler. No other countries sent more than two ships.
Brunei’s contribution, KDB Darulehsan (OPV 07) will be interesting. It is the same basic design as the twelve OPVs being built for the Australian Navy. She is reportedly equipped with 4 × Exocet MM40 Block 3. Will be interesting to see if she is shooter during the exercise.
Nice to see the photo below of USS Essex (LHD-2) looking very much like a WWII aircraft carrier, bringing WWII vintage aircraft to Hawaii where they will commemorate the 75th anniversary of the end of WWII.
