Operation ACCORDION
June 08
16:14 2017

Force Installation Team 31’s efforts to upgrade the Communications and Information Systems in the Middle East region have been bolstered by the arrival of more than 92 tonnes of equipment on an Antonov Airlines AN-124-100M.

The AN-124-100M is one of the world’s largest cargo aircraft, and is capable of carrying up to 150 tonnes of cargo, almost double the carrying capacity of a C-17 Globemaster.

There are around 500 Australian Defence Force personnel deployed on Operation ACCORDION.

Their mission is to support and sustain Australia’s operations in the Middle East region, enable contingency operations and enhance regional relationships.
