Head Land Capability, Major General Kathryn Toohey, said the annual demonstration day was a great opportunity to showcase the variety of modern equipment and latest technology used by Army on operations to respond to emerging and changing threats.

"The equipment on display today represented just some of the capability available to the Army," MAJGEN Toohey said.

Army’s ground capabilities were joined by air assets, including the Wasp and Black Hornet unmanned aerial systems, and a Tiger armed reconnaissance helicopter that landed in Russell Offices’ Sir Thomas Blamey Square for the event.

The equipment on show at Army Demonstration Day also formed part of the ADF display at the Australian Defence Force Academy open day on Saturday.

"As we continue our modernisation efforts, we are committed to working with industry and researchers to generate a capability advantage for the Army to ensure we are future ready," MAJGEN Toohey said.
