On Monday 25 Nov 2013 HNDGS Chief  General Mikhail Kostarakos accompanied by HN Chief Vice-Admiral Evangelos Apostolakis and Chief nas embarked on frigate “ADRIAS” to observe exercise “THALASSIOS GRYPAS 2013”.


During the exercise, which was held at NAMFI, Crete, surface-to-surface PENGUIN MK – 2 MOD 3 fires were successfully launched against a floating target by a HN torpedo boat and air-to-surface AGM-65 MAVERICK fires were delivered by HAF F-16 and F-4 aircraft.


The scheduled AGM 114 K1 HELLFIRE fires by AH-64 DHA and AH 64A+ (APACHE), and GBU-12 fires delivered by F-16 aircraft were not executed, due to the sinking of the target. These will be rescheduled and executed in the near future.
