Greece sends new strike craft to join NATO mission

Greece is preparing to deploy its new Roussen-class fast strike craft to a NATO mission for the first time.

HS Daniolos, the second ship of the class, is expected to join Operation ‘Active Endeavour’, NATO’s maritime counter-terrorism mission in the eastern Mediterranean, towards the end of July for a 15-day patrol. First-of-class HS Roussen will follow its sister ship to participate in the operation.
