Greek frigate Hydra fires against military drones


The Greek frigate Hydra today, in the morning hours, fired against two Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), in accordance with standard Rules of Engagement, and managed to repel them, providing protection to a merchant ship, as part of the EUNAVFOR ASPIDES operation, in the Gulf of Aden.

According to authorities the frigate continues its mission normally.

The Greek frigate Hydra is part of an EU naval group under the CDSP maritime security operation ASPIDES that aims to safeguard maritime security and ensure freedom of navigation, especially for merchant and commercial vessels, in the area where numerous Houthi attacks have targeted international commercial vessels since October 2023. Within its defensive mandate, the operation will provide maritime situational awareness, accompany vessels, and protect them against possible multi-domain attacks at sea.
