Operation Argon Glow Complete

March 1, 2020 – Last week, personnel from the RCN and RCAF participated in a Virtual Task Group Exercise which saw six ships combat teams (from East and West Fleets), a submarine crew, a CP-140 Aurora Maritime Patrol Aircraft crew, and two CH-148 Cyclone crews playing in a common virtual war game. The submarine simulator even played on the opposition force a few times to keep things interesting for the others!

This represents the largest VTGEX to date for the RCN and RCAF, and for the first time, live participation by ships alongside in Halifax and Esquimalt simultaneously.
