    [FONT=Verdana]As the old Australian thread seems to have died a death, I thought I would try and get a new one going as there are so many superb photos around.[/FONT]
    [FONT=Verdana] [/FONT]
    [FONT=Verdana]This thread is only for the modern Australian Defence Force and is not meant to cover the world wars or Vietnam; please stick to todayís ADF and its Operations and Exercises.[/FONT]

    [FONT=Verdana]MODS if I am wrong in this and want to resurrect the old thread please do as you see fit, thanks.[/FONT]

    Default Airborne Combat Team Parachute Insertion

    [FONT=Verdana]The Airborne combat team from 3RAR made a spectacular parachute insertion into the Combined Arms Training Activity near Charters Towers on September 6. Two Globemasters from 36 Sqn at RAAF Amberley and two Hercules from 37 Sqn at RAAF Richmond were used to deliver the troops and their eqipment.

    Over 200 paratroopers did the jump from 1000ft and then took part in a realistic non-combatant evacuation scenario conducted by 3 Bde. Lt-Col Trent Scott CO 3RAR said it was the first time the Globemaster, which was the latest purchase for the RAAF, had been involved in a mass parachute drop.

    "The parachute insertion was only the means to get here and it allowed us to get here rapidly with many numbers," Lt-Col Scott said.[/FONT]

    Fire Power Demonstration

    Some of the Armyís most advanced weapon systems were displayed in a fire power demonstration during the 3rd Brigadeís Combined Arms Training Activity.

    A combined arms battle group engaged targets by day and night with mortars, artillery, cavalry, helicopters and Royal Australian Air Force fighter aircraft at the Townsville Field Training Area on September 9.

    The 2nd Battalion Royal Australian Regimentís Combat Team Bravo manned the defensive position for the display and was supported by B Squadron 3rd/4th Cavalry Regiment in protected mobility vehicles.

    Hi Mate, I had the same thought as i have posted a couple of hundred on the daily threads over the last year and it seemed a shame not to have an Australian Defence Force thread ! I know there was an older thread that mainly had Vietnam/Malaya/WW1/2 photos and there is a very hit and miss thread with Australian Special Forces but nothing for the bulk of the Defence Forces. Anyway, I hope it keeps going and people like it so we shall see how it goes
