This took place in May at the Outer Hebrides test range run by QinietiQ.
 
I'll spare you the blurb by referencing the NATO publicity: https://www.nato.int...lectedLocale=en
 
USS Roosevelt (DDG-80) firing (There are several different views, this is just one of them). At least one engagement was with SM-3 of a ballistic missile simulator:
 

 

HMS Defender (Type 45) engaging a supersonice sea-skimmer (Firejet). Watch this one to the end.

 

 

Apparently Sea Ceptor and ESSM were also used, but I can't find video for these.

I wonder how the RN gets on cooparating with the USN in air defence engagements as, IIRC, we opted to save money by not going ahead with CEC even between D class destroyers, let alone with anyone else's systems.
