Warships from eight NATO countries hold missile defence drill near Scotland
Warships from eight NATO countries participated in live-fire self-defence exercises of ship and missile systems near Scotland on Sunday, reported Reuters citing the U.S. Department of Defense as saying.
Ships from Canada, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, the United Kingdom and the United States defended against a medium-range missile as well as three anti-ship cruise missiles.
The USS Donald Cook successfully intercepted a medium-range missile with a Standard Missile-3 Block IB guided missile during the exercise, the Pentagon said.
