Operation Apollo

Operation Apollo (October 2001 - October 2003) is an operation of the Canadian Navy in support of the United States in its "War on Terrorism". Currently, the naval force consists of the Halifax-class frigates HMCS Montréal and HMCS Winnipeg stationed in the Arabian Sea.

Two ships, the frigate HMCS Fredericton, which will replace the Montréal, and the destroyer HMCS Iroquois are enroute to the Arabian Sea. The departure of the Iroquois was delayed when its Sea King helicopter lost power and crashed into the deck.

HMC Ships Halifax, Charlottetown, Preserver, Vancouver, Ottawa, Toronto, St. John's and Protecteur have previously completed tours of duty in the operation.
