In the Western Pacific
The Ronald Reagan Carrier Strike Group (CSG) is underway in the Western Pacific off of the Philippines. The strike group made a port call to Manila from Oct. 15 to 18.
Last week, the Reagan CSG and USS New Orleans (LPD-18) operated in the Philippine Sea with the Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force and the Royal Canadian Navy for a joint exercise, USNI News reported on Friday.
The joint U.S. Navy and Marine Corps Task Force 76/3 started experimenting with concepts for joint operations in the Indo-Pacific region last week, U.S. 7th Fleet said.
USS Ronald Reagan (CVN-76) includes embarked with Carrier Air Wing (CVW) 5, cruiser USS Chancellorsville (CG-62) and destroyer USS Higgins (DDG-76). New Orleans is part of the Amphibious Ready Group with USS Tripoli (LHA-7), with the embarked 31st Marine Expeditionary Unit, and dock landing ship USS Rushmore (LSD-47). Littoral Combat Ship USS Oakland (LCS-24) is operating with the ARG.
Canadian frigates HMCS Vancouver (FFH331) and HMCS Winnipeg (FFH338) participated for the Royal Canadian Navy, while Japanese destroyer JS Kirisame (DD-104) also joined.
“Both Canadian frigates are deployed to the Indo-Pacific under Operation Projection, the Canadian Armed Forces presence operations in the region. Vancouver is part of Operation Neon, which is Canada’s contribution to enforce United Nations sanctions on North Korea. Kirisame is part of the JMSDF’s Indo-Pacific Deployment 2022,” reported USNI News.
