ARABIAN GULF (Dec. 20, 2015) A French Rafale Marine aircraft prepares to launch from the flight deck of the aircraft carrier FS Charles de Gaulle (R 91) as the French Navy begins their missions in the Arabian Gulf supporting Operation Inherent Resolve on Dec. 20. In a move that demonstrates the interoperability and partnership between the naval forces of the U.S. and France, the French Navy is leading carrier-based naval strike operations for Commander U.S. Naval Forces Central Command in support of Operation Inherent Resolve – the fight to degrade and ultimately destroy the ISIL terrorist organization.
