The Task Group, built around the Charles de Gaulle aircraft carrier, is now sailing in the Persian Gulf. Here, the Group is expected to join the Task Force 50 and operate alongside the US Navy’s Carl Vinson Carrier Strike Group.

As part of the mission Arromanches, the vessels visited Manama, Bahrain.
