MOSCOW, March 18. /TASS/. The amphibious Harpers Ferry-class dock landing ship USS Carter Hall has entered the Black Sea, the Naples-headquartered US 6th fleet press service said Saturday.
"The amphibious dock landing ship USS Carter Hall (LSD 50) and embarked Marines from the 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit, arrived in the Black Sea March 17, to participate in bilateral training exercise Spring Storm 17 with Romania," the press service said in a statement.
The Romanian-led maritime exercise Spring Storm 17 is taking place in the vicinity of Constanta, Romania, March 18-21, in the Black Sea. About 1,200 Romanian and US servicemen will take part in the drills, that will also involve Romanian Navy warship and Air Force aircraft. The Carter Hall will work alongside Romanian maritime forces to develop interoperability and proficiency.
Carter Hall was launched on October 2, 1993, and commissioned September 30, 1995. She made her maiden deployment to the Mediterranean on April 29, 1997. The ship may carry up to 500 marines on board.
