    Hey Guys.

    Thought you might appreciate this.
    Not 100% ADF news but i still think its highly relevant to this thread.

    Crossfit.com has honoured the memory of Australian Army Sergeant Brett Wood in a 'Hero WOD'.
    This is the first time an Australian serviceman has had such been regconised in this manner.
    RIP

    The Commando Welfare Trust was also given in the write up on the website. Hopefully more much needed money is donated to this cause with this exposure.

    Default 11 Days in Afghanistan

    Just finished watching this on Channel 10 here in Perth. Thought I'd share it with the forum. The link below only works in Australia I think.

    Is the extended version of Tour of Duty available online somewhere yet? I didn't get a chance to see it.

    Defence announces major Army restructure

    The Defence Force has announced a major restructure of the Australian Army.
    Under Plan Beersheba three multi-role brigades will be created to include wider components of infantry, armour, artillery, engineers, logistics and communications.
    There will also be changes to the structure of the Army Reserve and the creation of a new amphibious force.
    Defence says multi-role brigades will enable more effective training in Australia and rapid deployment of forces overseas.
    It says the changes will also enhance the Army's ability to undertake sustained operations.
    Chief of Army Lieutenant-General David Morrison described the changes as a smarter way of delivering capability.

    I'm no expert on the structure of the army, but that actually sounds like a good thing. Of course it will have some sort of disadvantages.

    It looks pretty good the way it has been explained to me. From an Infantry perspective it is definitely an enhancement of capability. A light battalion is pretty weak in terms of firepower, maneuverability, and interoperability with armour. Having vehicles doesn't mean you have to neglect the dismounted side either.

    Default Project Overlander

    [*******#000000][FONT=Verdana]​Minister for Defence Stephen Smith and Minister for Defence Materiel Jason Clare today announced that the Government had taken the next step in the $7.5 billion Project Overlander that will provide the Australian Defence Force with around 7,500 new vehicles over the next decade.
    [/FONT][/COLOR][*******#000000][FONT=Verdana]
    Project Overlander will replace the current fleet of Land Rovers, Unimog, Mack and S-Liner trucks and their associated trailers and modules.
    [/FONT][/COLOR][*******#000000][FONT=Verdana]
    These new vehicles represent a significant increase in capability, replacing multiple vehicles fleets that have been in service since the early 1980s
