Force Protection Element 8 is deployed to Kabul to provide force protection and protected mobility to Australian advisors and mentors working for the NATO mission in Afghanistan. The Australian Defence Force’s commitment to Afghanistan is known as Operation Highroad and is filled by personnel serving with Task Group Afghanistan. Australia continues to support the NATO-led train, advise and assist mission called Resolute Support which has replaced the previous NATO-led International Security Assistance Force mission. Around 270 ADF members from the Royal Australian Navy, the Australian Army, the Royal Australian Air Force and Defence civilians are deployed in Afghanistan as part of Operation Highroad.
