In accordance with plans, the ships will hold a number of tactical drills related to reaction on the present-day threats at sea, i.e. suppression of drug trafficking, arms smuggling, and counter-terrorism.

Earlier on, the ships had effectively completed missions within the interfleet task force in the North Atlantic, western, central, and eastern parts of the Mediterranean Sea.
