With Exercise Talisman Sabre 19 officially kicking off earlier this week, Defence Connect will provide continuous imagery updates from the biennial exercise. Part Two will feature plenty of interaction between the US and Australian Air Force’s.

TS19 is a bilateral combined Australian and US training activity, and is designed to practice the two countries’ respective military services and associated agencies in planning and conducting combined and joint task force operations, and improve the combat-readiness and interoperability between Australian and US forces.

Occurring every two years, Talisman Sabre is a major exercise reflecting the closeness of the alliance and strength of the enduring military relationship.

TS19 will be the eighth iteration of the exercise and consists of a field training exercise incorporating force preparation (logistic) activities, amphibious landings, land force manoeuvre, urban operations, air operations, maritime operations and Special Forces activities.

Nearly 35,000 military personnel from the US and Australia are set to take part in what will be the biggest ever Talisman Sabre.

Historically, Talisman Sabre exercises have been conducted across northern and eastern Australia, and within Australia’s exclusive economic zone. Additional participants from third-party nations may participate or observe the exercise if invited.
