The Australian Defence Force’s Amphibious Capability has passed an important milestone during Exercise Talisman Saber 17. For the first time, soldiers from the Amphibious Ready Group have launched an entire battle group ashore by both surface and air means. Troops from 1st battalion Royal Australian Regiment conducted an air mobile insertion from HMAS Canberra into Shoalwater Bay Training Area, before linking up with 2nd battalion Royal Australian Regiment who came ashore by Royal Australian Navy landing craft. Exercise Talisman Saber 17 is a bilateral Australian and United States combined exercise focused on the planning and conduct of a ‘high end’ mid intensity war fighting activity involving a Pacific theatre campaign under US Pacific Command.
