Australia, Singapore conduct ship-to-shore exercise
Launched from the Republic of Singapore Navy (RSN)'s Landing Ships Tank (LST) RSS Persistence at SWBTA, Exercise Trident involves an amphibious landing with the objective of securing the beach front and involves more than 750 SAF personnel and 43 ADF personnel.The Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) and Australian Defence Force (ADF) troops jointly landing on the beach from the RSN's fast crafts, while performing a ship-to-shore manoeuvre with the RSAF's Apache AH-64s providing cover.
Exercise Wallaby 2014 marks the 24th year of the SAF's training at the SWBTA, and is a testament to the close and long-standing defence relationship between Singapore and Australia.
The SAF and the ADF share a long history of military cooperation, with extensive interactions that include bilateral and multilateral exercises, mutual visits, professional exchanges, and the cross-attendance of personnel at professional courses.
The two armed forces have also worked together in close partnership in the multinational reconstruction efforts in Afghanistan. In addition to the SWBTA, the SAF also conducts training in other Australian training areas such as Pearce, Western Australia, Oakey, Queensland and Tamworth, New South Wales.
