Combined Maritime Forces (CMF)

Combined Task Force (CTF) 150 unit has intercepted a second suspected drug smuggling vessel, seizing 8kg of methamphetamine based substances within just 96 hours of the Combined Maritime Forces (CMF) largest ever interception of amphetamines.

CTF 150 staff promptly directed The Royal Australian Navy’s Guided Missile Frigate, HMAS Melbourne to close and board the suspect dhow in the Arabian Sea.  HMAS Melbourne used her embarked S-70 Seahawk helicopter to locate a suspect dhow, operating about 170 nautical miles east-south-east of Muscat.
