Exercise Bersama Lima 19 concludes
Exercise Bersama Lima 19 has come to an end in Malaysia following 17 days of joint exercises between the Five Power Defence Arrangement (FPDA) countries of Australia, Malaysia, New Zealand, Singapore and the UK.
The exercise saw the five nations develop their joint training, interoperability and understanding, including carrying out air combat, offensive intercepts, maritime close air support and multi-aircraft combined missions and culminating in a complex air attack requiring coordination and cooperation between all countries and personnel.
Royal Air Force’s II(AC) Squadron detachment, currently deployed to the region, is operating from the Malaysian Air Force base at Butterworth, Penang, Malaysia.
In addition to the Typhoons, a RAF Voyager aircraft has also been deployed to Singapore for the first time to conduct air-to-air refuelling, which allowed the Typhoons to increase their endurance in the air significantly.
