PACIFIC OCEAN (NNS) — U.S. and Canadian Sailors completed a Task Group Exercise (TGEX), off the coast of Southern California, Oct. 7-11.
TGEX is a U.S. and Canadian, multi-warfare exercise designed to train independent deploying ships in various mission areas including air defense, anti-submarine warfare, surface warfare and maritime interdiction operations.
“This exercise was a great training opportunity in all warfare areas,” said Capt. Timothy Kott, commanding officer, USS Mobile Bay. “Everything we did this week stresses our basic warfighting capabilities and doing it with one of our closest partners makes it that much better. Bilateral exercises allow us to flex command and control and be able to operate together with some of our closest partners where we have the same maritime interests.”
