Williams (DDG 95), USS Cole (DDG 67), USS Ross (DDG 71), guided-missile frigate USS Samuel B Roberts (FFG 58), and fleet replenishment oiler USNS Kanawa (T-AO 196) will participate in the exercise, which is intended to improve interoperability between allied navies in an operationally challenging environment.“Joint Warrior provides our Sailors with an opportunity to work with our coalition partners in a unique tactical environment,” said Capt. Cary Krause, commander, DESRON 26. “This exercise will enhance our ability to operate with our allied navies, and will prepare our participating crews to conduct combined operations during deployment.”The U.S. Navy did not participate in Joint Warrior in 2013 due to budgetary constraints. However, with a new budget in place, the Department of Defense approved the Navy’s participation in Joint Warrior 14-1 because this exercise also serves as a pre-deployment certification event for the participating U.S. ships.“The entire spectrum of planned activities is a chance for our ships to train and hone their skills before their upcoming deployments,” said Krause. “We are thankful for this opportunity and excited to return to Scotland to participate in this exercise with our allies.”Joint Warrior will begin in late March and will last approximately two weeks. It will involve air, sea and ground assets from Belgium, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, New Zealand, Turkey and the United Kingdom. Exercise scenarios include small boat attacks, boarding operations, air defense, anti-submarine warfare, and ship maneuverability tasks. More than 30 individual units, including aviation, surface, and subsurface, are participating and playing a distinct role.[mappress]Press Release, March 17, 2014, 2014; Image: Wikimedia View post tag: Exercise View post tag: Naval View post tag: 26 View post tag: Joint View post tag: News by topic View post tag: Warrior Six ships, led by Commander, Destroyer Squadron (DESRON) 26, departed the U.S. for Scotland, March 14, to participate in Joint Warrior 14-2, a semiannual, United Kingdom-led training exercise designed to provide NATO and allied forces a unique multi-warfare environment in which to prepare for global operations.

Berget poised for Bluebirds

Posted on by

first_imgOle Gunnar Solskjaer is set to make his third Norwegian signing with Molde striker Jo Inge Berget due to complete his move to the club on Friday. “He knows the way I want to play – he’s strong, intelligent, smart. He scored against England in the Under-21 European Championships and will do well for us,” said Solskjaer of the 23-year-old, ahead of Saturday’s FA Cup fourth-round match against Bolton. Another man expected to complete a move to Cardiff is Manchester United winger Wilfried Zaha. The 21-year-old has made just four appearances for the Red Devils this season, one of which came in the Community Shield win over Wigan. A move to Cardiff would allow the England cap to gain regular first-team action, but Solskjaer insisted, contrary to reports, that the player has not had a medical. “You have to ask Manchester United,” said the Bluebirds boss. “He is a Manchester United player. I cannot comment about players who are not Cardiff players. Nothing has been concluded.” Press Associationcenter_img Solskjaer has already brought in midfielders Magnus Wolff Eikrem and Mats Moller Daehli from Heerenveen and Molde respectively. Berget, who like Eirkem and Daehli shares an agent with Solskjaer, was out of contract with Molde in the summer and is expected to put pen to paper on his Cardiff deal on Friday, after undergoing a medical on Thursday evening. last_img read more
