The Talisman Sabre exercise is a major undertaking reflecting the closeness of our alliance with the United States and the strength of the ongoing military-military relationship.

The exercise has enabled opportunities for interoperability between services, and exposure to equipment such as the U.S. MV-22 Osprey, seen launching here from the deck of the HMAS Canberra.

It provides invaluable experience to ADF personnel to improve combat training, readiness and dare I say it again ‘interoperability’, exposing participants to a wide spectrum of military capabilities and training experiences. The biennial exercise is now being conducted for the seventh time, and involves more than 30,000 US and Australian participants, operating in the maritime, land and air environments.
