Talisman Sabre 2015 concludes
The Talisman Sabre 2015 military exercise between the US and Australia has come to a close with an official ceremony held on the USS Blue Ridge in Brisbane on 20 July.
The Australian Department of Defence declared the exercise a success and a milestone in combat training, readiness and interoperability.
A key activity during the exercise was the amphibious landing of Australian soldiers and US Marine Corps (USMC) soldiers at Fog Bay, near Darwin. During this, the Bay Class Landing ship HMAS Choules of the Royal Australian Navy worked with the amphibious force of the US Navy to deliver personnel onto the beach.
Darren Chester, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister for Defence, Australia, said: 'This is the first time the exercise has taken place simultaneously in two strategically important locations.
'The Bradshaw Field Training Area, south west of Darwin in the Northern Territory and the Shoalwater Bay Training Area near Rockhampton in Queensland have again proven their worth in terms of mid intensity and high end training. By all accounts this operation has been a tremendous success.'
