A flotilla of warships from Nato countries are making Cardiff their home for the duration of the Newport summit.
The anti-submarine frigate La Motte-Picquet was the second largest vessel to arrive ahead of the meeting on Thursday.
It joins the larger Royal Navy Type 45 destroyer HMS Duncan.
The warship, the UK's newest, was recently deployed to the WW1 celebrations in Glasgow and for the Commonwealth Games.
The two ships have been joined by four others:
- Norwegian Corvette HNoMS Skudd
- Latvian minehunter LVNS Viesturs
- Dutch Navy minesweeper HNLMS Urk
- Lithuanian Navy minesweeper LNS 'Kursis'
