According to the Department of Defence, 17,000 military personnel took part throughout the training, and exercises were conducted across all domains including land, air, sea, cyber and space.

France, India and Indonesia participated as observer nations.

Lieutenant General Greg Bilton, Chief of Joint Operations, explained how the exercise was crucial to maintaining the ADF’s battle preparedness alongside the United States.

Major General Jake Ellwood, Commander of the ADF’s Deployable Joint Force Headquarters, suggested that the exercise helped ready the ADF to rise to the challenge by trialling members in a tough multi-domain environment.

“Talisman Sabre demonstrates that American and Australian militaries can quickly join forces and execute highly complex multi-domain operations in a demanding environment,” MAJGEN Ellwood said.

“The exercise will also provide an opportunity for forces from the United Kingdom and Japan to operate alongside Australian and US forces during the amphibious landings, and some broader participation by forces from Canada, New Zealand and the Republic of Korea.

“Overall, these exercises provide an outstanding opportunity to develop broader interoperability with friends, partners and allies within the region and further afield.”

Throughout the exercise, two Chinese spy ships appeared along the coast to spy on Australia’s allies, making international headlines.
