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.

Linked is a short video of HMAS Adelaide unloading a portable army hospital in Dili, Timor L'Este.
A continuing part of her Indo Pacific Endeavour 17 deployment.
Interestingly she seems to have left one of her Navantia Landing craft in Darwin and embarked an Australian Army LCM 8 in lieu.

HMAShips Adelaide and Darwin have visited the Philippines as part of Indian Pacific Endeavour 17. The two were in Subic Bay enjoying a break and some small exercises with the Philippines Marine Corps.

HMAS Parramatta visited Kota Kinabalu as part of the Deployment and HMAS Melbourne has visited Sasebo

Australia is building up a very modern and cohesive looking Navy, and it is great to see them at sea showing their ever growing capabilities.

Congratulations to the RAN.

Australia has clearly decided to build its naval and defence capabilities so it can protect its interests in the Western Pacific and Indian Ocean areas. The government and Australian Defence Forces are to be commended for their efforts in building self-reliance in this very fractured world.

HMAS Adelaide has left the Philippines and is now in Singapore for joint training with the SDF.

Assail: The RAN is certainly showing the flag in this deployment. As its new LHDs and AAW destroyers become fully operational, the existence of a multi-purpose modern maritime force will enhance Australia's position in the Western Pacific and Indian Ocean areas.
