The 30-member contingent landed safely in the drop zone, stowing their parachutes and navigating several kilometres from the drop zone to the airport, where they rendezvoused with RAAF aircraft for the extraction.

Warrant Officer Class Two S, who supervised the exercise, thanked the local community for supporting the operation. 

“We’ve been able to achieve some solid training in a new environment unfamiliar to the teams involved and we wouldn’t have been able to do that without the local Temora support," he said. 

Exercise Titan Pegasus forms part of 2 Commando Regiment’s preparation for Exercise Talisman Sabre, conducted alongside US special operations forces.

2 Commando Regiment is expected to conduct a similar exercise by night at another remote drop zone before participating in Exercise Talisman Sabre in July.
