The navies of Australia and Brunei have completed the 18th series of bilateral exercise Penguin which took place off Brunei.

The four-day exercise concluded October 22.

Exercise Penguin was joined by Royal Brunei Navy’s Darussalam-class OPV KD Darulaman and Itjihad-class inshore patrol vessel KD Berkat while the Australian Navy deployed Armidale-class patrol boat HMAS Launceston.

Various at sea evolutions were aimed at enhancing the professionalism and interoperability through combined training.

The two countries have a goal of organizing the exercise every two years but the last edition of the exercise took place in 2015.
