    I'd want my own people giving me air support if at all possible. Wouldn't want to depend on another nation with a different set of ROE and a different chain of command. No thanks.

    Touche: In the book Behind enemy lines by Terry O'FarrelL he can not speak highly enough of the Aussie pilots and that legacy would certainly be with the fly boys today.

    Default SECDET snipers

    [FONT=Verdana]Casting an ever watchful eye above the streets of Baghdad, the Snipers of SECDET XIV provide an added advantage to the combat team on the ground.

    The role of the sniper pair is to provide Intelligence Surveillance Reconnaissance to the Calvary Troops and Close Personal Protection Teams. These and others on the ground rely on the tactical information provided by the sniper team in order to safely conduct their duties. 2008[/FONT]

    As part of his responsibilities, Sniper Sergeant Clint Vecchio observes any potential threats over the city of Baghdad.

    Default Capability demonstration at Aileu - 2008

    [FONT=Verdana]The Timor-Leste Battle Group 3 (TLBG3) capability demonstration pits the International Stabilisation Force (ISF) and the Timor-Leste National Police (PNTL) against a jail escapee threatening the town. When the PNTL request the assistance of the ISF to recapture the thug, played by a TLBG3 member, the show gets on the road.

    Sniper teams are deployed by RNZAF Iroquois, the Battle Group's quick response force move in to cordon and search the town and the thug is brought down by a Military Police working dog. With the offender’s minor injuries dressed by a Battle Group medic and in PNTL custody, the locals are free once again to get on with their lives.[/FONT]
    [FONT=Verdana]
    [/FONT]
    [FONT=Verdana]The audience erupts in applause, but there’s more to come.

    This is probably the only show where you get to go backstage after the performance, meet the cast and play with the props: the audience is given the opportunity to climb over the helicopters, ride around town in the armoured personnel carriers, handle the weapons and get up close and personal with 'Amy' the military working dog.

    Beyond the obvious entertainment value, the demonstrations are designed to deliver some serious messages. They build trust in the ISF’s people and equipment, demystify its role and send a carefully-crafted message to anyone contemplating violence as a means to an end in Timor-Leste: you can’t run, and you can’t hide.[/FONT]

    Default Tactical Communications Course 0039 bush phase

    [FONT=Verdana]After spending three weeks training at RAAF Richmond's No. 1 Combat Communication Squadron (1CCS), students of TACTCOMMS course 0039 deployed to the Singleton Training Area in New South Wales to consolidate their knowledge in a tactical field environment.

    Having travelled from RAAF bases all over Australia to participate in the course, the students were kitted out with their packs, webbing and F88 Steyrs before disappearing into the bush to set up and operate Tactical Air Command Posts (TACP) and smaller satellite radio communication posts known as 'Step Ups'. 06 July 2010[/FONT]




    Students of Tactical Communications (TACTCOMMS) course 0039 don their packs and prepare to move out with 6x6 and 4x4 Land Rovers to their first Tactical Air Command Post (TACP) site.



    Flying Officer Christopher Leedham tapes a cable to the guide ropes of a master antenna mast he had just helped erect. The antenna mast was used to create a simulated headquarters with which students on Tactical Communications (TACTCOMMS) course 0039 could communicate with.



    (L-R) Aircraftman Daniel Neu and Corporal Erik Ambrose operate the radios and computer terminal in a Tactical Air Command Post (TACP) tent specifically designed to prevent any light escaping, which would give away the sites position in a tactical environment.



    Aircraftman Daniel Neu puts on a smile for the camera while ankle deep in water in his Tactical Air Command Post (TACP) defensive pit



    Aircraftman Andrew Lucarelli keeps an eye on the bush as a Landrover 6x6 'Parakeet' lumbers by in transit from one Tactical Air Command Post (TACP) site to another.



    Students of Tactical Communications (TACTCOMMS) course 0039 swarm over and around a Landrover 6x6 'Parakeet' in an effort to transform it into a Tactical Air Command Post (TACP) as quickly as possible.



    Aircraftman James Sanderson supervises as fellow Tactical Communications (TACTCOMMS) course 0039 students unload a Land Rover 6x6 'Parakeet'.



    Flying Officer Alex Barbaro is all smiles despite the gloomy weather as he sets out to a new Tactical Air Command Post (TACP) site.

    Australia's next generation Air Warfare Destroyer

    20 June 2007

    Australia’s maritime air warfare capability has reached a significant milestone with the Government’s selection of the Navantia designed F100 as the next generation Air Warfare Destroyer (AWD) for the Royal Australian Navy (RAN).

    At a cost of nearly $8 billion, and subject to successful contract negotiations, Navantia will work with the AWD Alliance (Defence Materiel Organisation, ASC and Raytheon Australia) to deliver three AWDs to the Royal Australian Navy.
