French Navy, US Marines in Amphibious Exercise in Djibouti with Mistral class and LCAT

In late March 2016, the French Navy (Marine Nationale), the French forces based in Djibouti (FFDJ) and U.S. Marines units conducted a combined amphibious exercise named WAKRI 16. The exercise simulated the evacuation of nationals of a fictitious country following infiltration by separatist militias. The exercise involved several assets including Mistral-class LHD Tonnerre of the French Navy as well as the LCAT landing catamaran (designated EDAR in the French Navy).
