According to an announcement by the Ministry of Defence, several helicopters from the National Guard and the Greek battle ship “Prometheus” participated in the drill, dubbed “Salamis 01/16”.

The exercise was conducted under the coordination of the Larnaca Joint Rescue Coordination Centre, in cooperation with the Greek Navy General Staff.
