Counter piracy warships refuelling-at-sea off the Somalia coast

AMISOM urge Somalis to return home and help rebuild Nation | Coastweek

OFF SOMALIA COAST -- The EU Naval Force’s counter-piracy mission, Operation Atalanta, is currently supported by two German Navy ships; one is the flagship, FGS Bayern, and the other is a tanker, FGS Spessart. The two ships recently met at sea in order for FGS Bayern to refuel and so enable her to maintain her counter-piracy patrols in the Gulf of Aden and Somali Basin. Refueling at Sea – or RAS – is a careful manoeuvre which requires skill and precision from both vessels. The RAS took around an hour to complete and afterwards FGS Bayern resumed her counter-piracy patrols thus ensuring that seafarers and their vessels remain safe from Somalia pirate attacks.

MOGADISHU Somalia (AMISOM) -- View of Mogadishu fishing harbour from the Aruba Hotel, in the Somali capital Mogadishu. Since the Al-Qaeda-affiliated extremist group Al Shabaab withdrew from fixed positions in Mogadishu -- after having steadily lost territory to forces of the Transitional Federal Government (TFG) backed by troops from the African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) -- city residents have enjoyed the longest period of relative peace in 20 years, with re-building and re-generation work taking place all over the city and businesses and a semblance of normal daily life returning to the now busy streets of the once war-shattered Horn of Africa capital.
