ARA Robinson (CM 45)

The Argentinean ship ARA Robinson (CM 45) fires its 5 inch gun during a surface gunnery exercise conducted as part of UNITAS 45-04 Pacific Phase. Naval forces from Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and observers from Mexico and Canada are participating in UNITAS 45-04. Eleven partner nations from the U.S. and Latin America joined forces in the largest multilateral exercise in the Southern Hemisphere. Held since 1959, UNITAS aims to unite military forces throughout the Americas with bilateral and multilateral shipboard, amphibious and in-port exercises and operations. UNITAS improves operational readiness and interoperability of U.S. and South American naval, coast guard, and marine forces while promoting friendship, professionalism and understanding among participants.
