USS Charleston Conducts CARAT, Timor-Leste 2021

211206-N-PH222-1201 SAVU SEA (Dec. 6, 2021) Members of the Timor-Leste Defense Force embark Independence-variant littoral combat ship USS Charleston (LCS 18) from a rigid-hull inflatable boat during Cooperation Afloat Readiness and Training (CARAT) exercise. In its 27th year, the CARAT series is comprised of multinational exercises, designed to enhance U.S. and partnered navies’ abilities to operate together in response to traditional and non-traditional maritime security challenges in the Indo-Pacific region. Charleston, part of Destroyer Squadron (DESRON) 7, is on a rotational deployment in the U.S. 7th Fleet area of operation to enhance interoperability with partners and serve as a ready-response force in support of a free and open Indo-Pacific region.
