Assail: With the withering of influence of the United States in the Indo-Western Pacific area, Australia has the opportunity to exert more influence there. Canada has also some desire to increase its presence in the Western Pacific with the deployment of two frigates there in 2017 and the intent to do likewise in 2018 with the addition of our new AOR. Both countries have extensive economic and social linkages to India and China as well as other states in the region. Neither country can afford to see these relationships erode.

Any idea what the Army contribution if any is likely to be or is Adelaide to be used as an helicopter maintenance/ferry asset

No idea but I suspect it will be tailored to meet requirements of the individual countries visited. eg the participation with Timor L'Este will differ from that with Japan.

I am completely green with envy. It has been a long time since the Canadian navy has been able to deploy a Task Group such as this.

Well done the RAN!

The first "engagement" has begun. Exercises with the USS Bonhomme Richard TG have commenced.

I wonder why Harriers were excluded from the cross decking? Could it be politics, so RAN officials do not have to answer questions from the press about the prospect of Australian fixed wing aircraft?

The RAN is to be congratulated on deploying this Task Group so early after the commissioning of the LHDs. Like Scatari, I wish the RCN was able to deploy a significant task group but that will have to come in the next decade.
