Australian, Bruneian forces train together
Australian and Bruneian land forces have completed joint training during Exercise Mallee Bull at Gallipoli Barracks, the Australian Department of Defence announced on 9 December.
More than 60 soldiers from 6th Battalion, Royal Australian Regiment, and 55 soldiers from the Royal Brunei Land Forces took part in the exercise between 24 November and 7 December.
The exercise focused on integration training in urban environments with mechanised vehicles and reconnaissance. Equipment used included Australian M113 AS4 armoured personnel carriers, Bruneian motorcycles and UAS to complete missions.
The exercise aimed to build strong, long-term relationships between the two land forces to improve security, stability and prosperity of the Indo-Pacific region.
The exercise coincided with the annual Australian-Brunei Joint Defence Working Committee in Brisbane, with delegates from both nations visiting troops and seeing training at Gallipoli Barracks as part of the programme.
