Following her stop in Gibraltar Trent will join Operation Sea Guardian in the Mediterranean providing maritime security in the area.

The River-class patrol ship is designed for counter-piracy, anti-smuggling, fishery protection, border patrol, counter terrorism and maritime defence duties and will add her weight to NATO’s ongoing maritime security operation in the Mediterranean.
