Australian Defence Forces Display Skills

All three branches of the Australian Defence Force showed each other what they were made of during Exercise JOINT STRIKE held at Beecroft Weapons Range, Jervis Bay from 31 August to 4 September.

Commanding Officer HMAS Stuart, Commander Aaron Nye said Stuart was playing an important role in JOINT STRIKE.

Today we will be providing counter-battery sustained fire ashore in support of troops on the ground, which is an important aspect in support of amphibious operations.

According to Commander Nye, the activity was a great experience for all the ship’s company.

In terms of us conducting joint operations and joint exercises with the Army and Air Force, it has been a fulfilling experience and I think it shows us how important the other two services are in terms of fulfilling what we need to achieve.

JOINT STRIKE was part of the SEA SERIES of exercises being held off North Queensland.
