SYDNEY (BNS): The Royal Australian Navy (RAN) Collins Class submarines recently conducted exercises in undersea warfare off the West Australian coast.

During the exercise HMAS Collins, HMAS Dechaineux and HMAS Waller carried out an extensive training which has tested both the crews and submarines, the Australian Department of Defence said.

The exercise included a number of military assets including RAN Frigate HMAS Anzac, three RAN Seahawk helicopters from the Nowra based 816 Squadron and a Royal New Zealand Air Force (RNZAF) P3 Orion.

Commander Australian Fleet, Rear Admiral Steve Gilmore said “The exercise provided appropriate challenge to all who were involved, and was conducted with the utmost professionalism.”

“Activities such as these ensure our people and platforms remain at the highest level of readiness in the defence of Australia,” he said.
