The Danish frigate Peter Willemoes is now ready to go to war against ISIL, after a parliamentary decision. It will hapen today when the frigate joins the US aircraft carrier group in the Mediterranean fighting the terror movement.

A Danish warship will join a aircraft carrier group for the first time ever.
Today, Peter Willemoes will join the US aircraft carrier group in the Mediterranean, taking part in the war against ISIL.

The frigate set a course towards the Mediterranean from Korsør on January 27 and is now ready for the task that the crew has prepared itself for, for several years.
The frigate will train, assist with radar images and help to defend the US aircraft carrier group in the event of threats or attacks.

And the boss of Peter Willemoes, Commander Kristian Haumann, has no doubts about his ship and its manpower skills to solve future tasks: "We're equal with other navies regarding the equipment and the skills we have here aboard Peter Willemoes terms of level - right at the top," he said at the departure.
