The UK Royal Navy’s Hunt-class minesweeper HMS Quorn has successfully completed a five-month deployment in the Baltic Sea.

During the recent Danish-led mine countermeasures (MCM) exercise in the southern Baltic, HMS Quorn was involved in a complex, multi-threat scenario that thoroughly tested the ship’s warfare capabilities.

The mine hunter also conducted two major exercises off North America’s east coast with the US and Canadian navies before returning to European waters for further operations with the group.

Since July 2009 the mine hunter has been deployed with the Standing NATO Mine Countermeasures Group One and conducted operations on both sides of the Atlantic.
