Two MCMVs from SNMCMG2 in Valletta Port

Two Mine Countermeasures Vessels (MCMVs) from the Standing NATO Mine Coutermeasure Group 2 (SNMGM2) have sailed in Valletta Port (the Grand Harbour) this morning on a courtesy visit. 

The MCMVs are the Tukish Navy TCG Edincik (M 260) - an Edicink (Circe) class minehunter - and the Italian Navy ITS Crotone (M 5558) - a Gaeta (Lerici II) class minehunter.

The two MCMVs are presently berthing alongside each other at Gun wharf, and they're expected to sail from the Grand Harbour on Tuesday, June 4, at 1000lt
