End of March in 2013 The Hamburg (F220) became the First German Ship to fully integrate into an American carrier strike group. It is commanded by Cmdr. Ralf Kuchler who hopes along with Rear Adm. Michael Manazir (Commander of Carrier Strike Group 8)that it is the beginning of a long partnership between the two countries. While this is the first time a German ship has been part of a carrier strike group, it is not the first time one has trained and deployed with American ships. FGS Hessen (F221) completed interoperability exercises and deployed with USS Harry S. Truman (CVN 75) in 2010, but detached in the Mediterranean Sea. German ships routinely collaborate with American ships in the European Union's Operation Atalanta, an anti-piracy mission around the Horn of Africa, as Hamburg did in 2011.
