This exercise was carried out in the waters of the Ría de Pontevedra and in the facilities of the Escuela Naval Militar de Marín. According to the Spanish Navy has communicated, the strong>31st Escort Squadron (which integrates the F-100 frigates based in Ferrol) and the 5th Squadron of the Aircraft Flotilla (FLOAN), equipped with SH-60F helicopters Seahawk, also participated in this exercise.

On the other hand, this exercise has also had the participation of special operations units from other countries, specifically from Portugal, the United Kingdom and Jordan, as well as NATO observers .

The Spanish Navy has published the series of photos of this exercise that you can see here. In the first two we can see parachute jumps in the Ría de Pontevedra. In the first we can see a waterfall near Punta Mourisca, in Bueu. In the image you can see the green beacon of Punta Mourisca. In the second photo, probably taken in the same place, we can see the coastal town of Sanxenxo in the background.
