    Default Combat Team Tusk on patrol during OP Shak Haliwel

    [FONT=Verdana]Combat Team Tusk is the name given to the Force Protection Combat Team from the 1st Mentoring and Reconstruction Task Force. The team is a Combined Arms Organisation and has soldiers and Officers drawn from Infantry, Cavalry, Artillery and other support Corps.[/FONT]

    [FONT=Verdana]During the weeks prior to Anzac Day, the Combat Team deployed to the Kakarak region of Uruzgan, to support Afghan National Army elements and their Australian mentors as they moved into the troubled region to further expand the significant security gains made during the Task Forces’ deployment.[/FONT]

    [FONT=Verdana]The soldiers from Combat Team Tusk conducted aggressive patrols, looking for the insurgents, their Improvised Explosive Devices and weapons caches. Their aim was to disrupt the enemy and remove their capability to threaten both Coalition forces and the local national Afghan people. The Operation was a resounding success, culminating in a decisive battle, which saw the Australians and their allies inflict serious casualties on the insurgents and destroy significant quantities of their weapons and explosives.[/FONT]

    Default ISF Battle group put on a spectacular display

    [FONT=Verdana]Recently the International Stabilisation Force (ISF) Battle group put on a spectacular display as a demonstration of its capability followed by a static display which was well attended by the local population.

    The display began with the securing of a landing zone for Kiwi Helicopters which inserted a section of infantry that married up with a troop of APCs. Once this exercise was completed all the vehicles lined up on a soccer field on the outskirts of Dili and set up a static display which was surrounded by curious children, teenagers and adults.
