On the 12th February 2012, Senior Officers from RFA Wave Knight, HMAS Parramatta, and PNS Babur visited HMS Daring. The four Naval Ship’s make up the Combined Task Force (CTF) 150.

The four Ship’s will conduct a focused Operation in the next 5 days on Counter Piracy between the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aiden.

HMS Daring is currently deployed for a seven-month deployment to continue the Royal Navy’s long-term presence East of the Suez.

The ship will be acting as part of the Royal Navy’s standing commitment in the Middle East, providing a range of capabilities from counter piracy to reassurance of the UK’s allies in the region. The area of operations is huge, covering the Indian Ocean, the Gulf of Aden and the Arabian Gulf.
