Authorities It was the first visit aboard an Operation Atalanta unit other than the flagship since he assumed command on 6 August in Djibouti.The Force Commander and his staff were picked up by Berlin’s SH-3D Sea King helicopter during a Replenishment At Sea (RAS) manoeuvre of FGS Berlin and the flagship ITS Andrea Doria in Gulf of Aden.After meeting the ship’s officers, Rear Admiral Rando was briefed by the Commanding Officer (CO), Commander Marcel Rosenbohm, on FGS Berlin’s capabilities. The Force Commander was highly impressed by the outstanding logistical and medical facilities that FGS Berlin offers. With her self-defence system, her two Sea King helicopters and the boarding capabilities, FGS Berlin is far more than purely a supply and support vessel and can fulfill a wide range of counter-piracy operations while deployed with the EU Naval Force.[mappress]Press Release, August 14, 2014; Image: EU Navfor Share this article EU NAVFOR Force Commander Tours FGS Berlin View post tag: Forcelast_img read more
