No less than 1,400 members of the Canadian, American, British and French armed forces participated in this 2023 edition. The main objective of the meeting was to strengthen the cooperation capabilities and develop the interoperability of NATO partners in the very specific field of anti-submarine warfare.

After a welcome at Greenwood Air Force Base, the Atlantic 2 crew deployed for the exercise carried out a complex anti-submarine warfare mission involving numerous U.S. and Canadian surface units, as well as a U.S. submarine and several air units with shipborne helicopters and a Canadian maritime patrol aircraft.

This mission, whose tactical objectives were perfectly fulfilled by the French crew, was once again an opportunity to demonstrate and establish the credibility of French know-how and to highlight the excellent operational capabilities of the ATL2 standard 6 in service with Flotillas 21F and 23F.
