CommentIt looked like it's going on a mission off the Libyan coast but then it just hangs around East of Crete apparently waiting for the K35R flying in from Mildenhall.
The Rivet Joint and the K35R appear to have interacted and then they went the separate ways. The K35R back to the UK while the other goes on a standard Black Sea patrol.
Why this wasteful contrived spiel ? Beats me.
