Warships Conduct First East Coast SWATT Training For Carrier Escorts

In a first for East Coast-based carrier strike group escorts, warships from the Abraham Lincoln CSG are participating in a surface warfare advanced tactical training (SWATT) exercise in a push to standardize similar training throughout the fleet.

The exercise, which started over the weekend, included the Norfolk-based surface units: Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyers USS Bainbridge (DDG-96), USS Gonzalez (DDG-66), USS Mason (DDG-87), USS Gravely (DDG-107) and USS Nitze (DDG-94), and Ticonderoga-class guided-missile cruiser USS Leyte Gulf (CG-55).

“This first East Coast CSG SWATT represents our commitment to the entirety of the Surface Force,” Rear Adm. Dave Welch, the commander of Naval Surface and Mine Warfighting Development Center (SMWDC), said in a statement. “SWATT provides a critical path for warfare and strike group commanders to develop the combat capability needed by our numbered fleet commanders to compete effectively in an era of great power competition.”
