Re: Southern Katipo 2015
An amphibious landing is conducted from HMNZS CANTERBURY at Titirangi Bay in the Marlborough Sounds by members of the NZ Navy, NZ Army, and international partners during SK15.Ex Southern Katipo 2015 (SK15) is a combined, joint, international training field exercise focussed on developing, exercising and evaluating the NZDF’s independent amphibious capabilities and ability to project forces anywhere in the South West Pacific. SK15 provides the opportunity to ensure continual preparedness to operate independently or with our coalition partners. The scenario involves a fictional South West Pacific country that has requested international intervention to restore law and order. The scenario allows for an emphasis on amphibious operations within the context of a larger stability and security operation.
