13th November 2019 - 06:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


The Royal Australian Navy’s HMAS Hobart has completed the initial phase of its first operational deployment, engaging with the Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force (JMSDF) as part of Exercise Nichi Gou Trident.

Hobart is part of a task force of nine ships, two submarines and four helicopters representing Australia from Southeast Asia to East Asia for multinational exercises and regional engagement activities.

The vessel has now arrived in Yokosuka, Japan, after completion of the exercise alongside JMSDF assets, and will continue on to other countries in the region for bilateral exercises.

This deployment is an important milestone for Hobart following a 12-month period maintenance, upgrades, testing and training.
