The UK Royal Navy has deployed a fleet of vessels to the eastern seaboard of the US and Western Atlantic to participate in the AURIGA multinational naval exercise.

During the four-month deployment, the Royal Navy vessels will join warships deployed from US and French Navies that departed to carry out maritime drills last month.

AURIGA aims to enhance several maritime capabilities including carrier strike, amphibious assault and anti-submarine warfare with all joint and coalition partners.

Ships involved in the AURIGA multinational naval task group include the Type 23 frigate HMS Sutherland, the Arleigh Burke Class destroyer USS Barry, RFA Fort George, French nuclear submarine FS Perle, HMS Ark Royal and HMS Liverpool.
