    Default Raising of the Australian Special Operations Engineer Regiment

    [FONT=Verdana]The Chief of Army, Lieutenant General David Morrison announced the raising of the newest unit in the Australian Army, the Special Operations Engineer Regiment (SOER). The announcement coincided with a ceremony held at Holsworthy Barracks in Sydney. [/FONT]

    [FONT=Verdana]The Incident Response Regiment (IRR) was taken off the Army’s Order of Battle and replaced by the newly named SOER. The new unit reflects the distinct roles and capabilities of the SOER, which differ from those of conventional Engineer units, whilst still retaining ties to the Corps of Royal Australian Engineers. [/FONT]

    [FONT=Verdana]The SOER provided two separate practical capability demonstrations at Holsworthy, a Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear or Explosive (CBRNE) neutralisation task and an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) clearance. [/FONT]

    [FONT=Verdana]The Special Operations Commander Australia, Major General Gus Gilmore also took the opportunity to meet the soldiers of the SOER to personally thank them for their work in supporting operations both domestically and overseas, and paid tribute to their fallen comrades.[/FONT]

    F-35B Test Flight With External Weapons


    Hi-Res

    NAVAL AIR SYSTEMS COMMAND, PATUXENT RIVER, Md., Feb. 23, 2012 - Over an Atlantic test range, Lockheed Martin test pilot Dan Levin flies F-35B test aircraft BF-2 with external weapons pylons for the first time yesterday. The test measured flying qualities with external pylons, inert AIM-9X Sidewinder air-to-air missiles and centerline 25 mm gun pod. Significant weapons testing for the F-35B and F-35C varaints is scheduled for 2012, including fit checks, captive carriage, pit drop and aerial drop tests. (Lockheed Martin photo by Michael D. Jackson)

    Hi-Res

    The first F-35B test flight with external weapons was carried out on 22 February 2012 at the Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division test facility at NAS Patuxent River Maryland. The test mission, flown by Lockheed Martin test pilot Dan Levin, measured flying qualities with external pylons, inert AIM-9X Sidewinder air-to-air missiles, and the removable centerline 25mm gun pod. The four-barrel GAU-22/A Gatlin-type gun, built by General Dynamics Armament and Technical Products, is a derivative of the currently fielded GAU-12/U Equalizer. The missionized gun system designed for the F-35B and F-35C includes the F-35A-common GAU-22/A gun, a gun system control unit, and drive assembly. A helical linear linkless ammunition feed system is also contained in the pod. (Photo by Michael D. Jackson)
