FNS AQUITAINE is versatile & fully armed, with 109 highly qualified sailors plus 14 specialists from the Naval Aviation community aboard. The vessel is under the command of Commander Fabrice Hilbert. They left the naval base in Brest at the end of August, in order to participate in the NATO exercise Cutlass Fury before sailing to Baltimore. To prevent any kind of threat & adapt itself to forthcoming operational challenges, the French Navy is equipped with a whole new generation of warships: multi-mission destroyers (FREMM), a class of ships of which AQUITAINE is the first. The FREMM destroyer is a strategic asset wherever she operates. She is fitted with cutting-edge sensors & weapons, which enable her to be decisive in operations of sea control, protection, anti-submarine, anti-surface, & anti-air warfare.
