HMAS Huon recently departed HMAS Waterhen to head north on a three-month deployment in support of Operation RESOLUTE.
Having recently completed an extensive training and evauation period, the crew are looking forward to developing new skills in support of the operational tasking.
After a brief stop in Cairns enroute, Huon will arrive in Darwin before undertaking some specialised training and assessment. The ship will take over the reins from sister ship HMAS Diamantina, which has been deployed in support of RESOLUTE for the last few months.
The deployment marks Huon’s second deployment in support of Operation RESOLUTE in the past 12 months and a continuing commitment by the Mine Hunter Coastal ships to supporting operations outside their core mine counter-measure role.
