The information was then passed ashore to CTF-150 Battle Watch for analysis and, if required, to direct USCG Aquidneck to intercept any suspicious vessels.Image: CMF View post tag: ship Share this article View post tag: News by topic April 16, 2015center_img View post tag: Naval View post tag: CMF View post tag: Aircraft View post tag: Navy Back to overview,Home naval-today CMF: Aircraft and Ship Help Protect Middle East Sea Lanes View post tag: Sea Laneslast_img read more
