HMAS Perth Back Home after Three Month Mission

Australian Navy’s HMAS Perth returned to her homeport on July 26 after a busy three month deployment to South East Asia.

The deployment covered a wide range of regional engagement and diplomacy duties, including visits to Singapore, Thailand and Cambodia, as well as participating in a number of maritime exercises with international partners.

Perth’s return home will provide the Navy with another first in the anti-ship missile defence upgrade program. All four upgraded Anzac class frigates were alongside together at Fleet Base West recently; the three Western Australia-based ships, HMA Ships Perth, Arunta and Warramunga, will be joined by Anzac, which is en route to Sydney after a busy NORTHERN TRIDENT deployment.

Perth will shortly enter an extended maintenance period before returning to sea in early 2016.
