U-214 Submarines in the Noble mariner 2012 exercise. Note the "HUD" shots







the ships in this declassified footage are:

- HDMS Esbern Snare (L17) Absalon Class

- Tonnerre (L9014) Mistral Class

- Jean Bart (D615) Cassard Class

In 2011 the NRP Tridente spent 1/3 of the year at sea, completing 2 missions. Thats 65 days each mission without refueling or resupply, exceeding the types official declassified specifications.
Previosuly this spring it was at Norfolk for fleetex exercise where it operated alongside nuclear subs, for systems certifications.

Noble mariner lasted 40 days, the ship was NRP Arpão.
