Denmark CL-604 Challenger MPA Support NATO's Counter Piracy Operation Ocean Shield

Flying low over the waters near Somalia, Danish crews hunt for indicators of illegal activities across a wide stretch of ocean near the east African coast. While pirate attacks have been few in the last couple of years, the conditions which lead to piracy are still present and, as such, interested nations must remain vigilant. The Danish detachment is participating in part of a NATO effort that has been on going since 2008 to deter and disrupt pirate attacks, while at the same time protecting vessels and helping increase the stability and security in the region.
