SOUTH CHINA SEA - The Arleigh-Burke guided missile destroyer USS McCampbell (DDG 85) and Royal Navy Type 23 frigate HMS Argyll (F231) conducted operations together in the South China Sea, Jan. 11-16.

At sea, McCampbell and Argyll conducted communication drills, division tactics, and a personnel exchange designed to address common maritime security priorities, enhance interoperability, and develop relationships that will benefit both navies for many years to come.

Argyll is currently deployed to the Indo-Pacific in support of regional security and stability. The cooperative deployment follows a trilateral anti-submarine warfare exercise between the U.S. Navy, Royal Navy, and Japan Maritime Self Defense Force, Dec. 21-22.
