VIDEO: Onboard NATO’s Counter-Piracy Flagship

The Spanish Navy’s Aegis frigate Alvaro de Bazan is currently serving as NATO’s Counter-Piracy flagship in the Gulf of Aden.

To keep his crew ready for all contingencies, Rear Admiral Eugenio Díaz del Río routinely puts his command ship through its paces even while on conducting anti-piracy patrols, such as this air defense training drill in the Gulf of Aden on 5 March 2014.
