July 16, 2015 • Leave a Comment
NH90s from the two operators of the helicopter in the southern hemisphere have come together to train and fly in Exercise Talisman Saber 2015. The biennial exercise is being held from 5 to 21 July 2015 in multiple training areas across Queensland and Northern Territory in Australia and involves 30,000 troops from the United States, Australia and smaller contributions from New Zealand and Japan.
Royal New Zealand Air Force (RNZAF) NH90s from 3 Squadron staged their first overseas deployment when two of the type made the short hop north to Rockhampton after disembarking from the multi-role vessel HMNZS Canterbury. The NH90s were embedded within the Australian Defence Force (ADF)’s 16th Aviation Brigade during the exercise and flew alongside the MRH90 (ADF's designation for the NH90) and Tiger Armed Reconnaissance Helicopter (ARH) as part of their integration training. The NH90s and MRH90s conducted troop transport and utility missions at the Shoalwater Bay Military Training Area with escort provided by the Tiger ARHs.
