Shared info means shared survival. Good job to all !!
Farther down in the article was for me this nugget.

While the French and Canadians hit their targets as NATO AWACS aircraft cleared airspace around the drill, Formidable Shield also marked the first key test of a new NATO command and control structure, including the first at-sea deployment of Naples, Italy-based Commander Task Group 64, which runs the integrated air and missile defense mission for US Naval Forces Europe-Africa and the commander of 6th Fleet.

ESSM baby!  Love that missile!

:nod:

RIM-162’s a beast!  Glad the RCN has some of the closest to the leading edge capability for AD available today.
