    Those Perry class Frigates proved to be tough customers to sink. As the latest SINKEX at RIMPAC proved again. Tough birds.

    The first picture is from that tremendous exercise between Australian and US Navy ships. But Korean and Japanese warships working together looks great as well. 052C class looks like a some kind of magnificent warrior as well ;)

    I've waited a very long time to see a pic like this.

    HMAS Canberra conducts a replenishment at sea (RAS) with underway replenishment oiler USNS Rappahannock during Exercise Rim of the Pacific (RIMPAC) 2016.

    Amphibious assault ship USS America can be seen in the background, while HMAS Canberra's superstructure almost entirely conceals the USNS Rappahannock.

    What's that? I thought for this year it was Stennis, America and Hyuga with Chokai leading the column to the port of aircraft carrier and Saejong the Great in the next?

    That looks like last year or some other.

    Thee Canberra should be in the center line with the other carriers. Either #3 or #4. But I do not see it in that pic.
