Task Force Fredericton

HMCS Fredericton is currently sailing with Standing NATO Maritime Forces in the Mediterranean Sea and is tasked with locating, tracking, reporting and boarding vessels that are suspected of involvement in or support of terrorist activities. HMCS Fredericton is a Halifax-class frigate with a crew of 250 personnel of all ranks, including a CH-124 Sea King helicopter and air detachment.

This includes a new combat management system, new radar capability, a new electronic warfare system, upgraded communications and missiles, as well as a new integrated platform management system.
