The ADF and its US partners take on high-end, joint land combat against a capable enemy force during the field component of Exercise Talisman Sabre 21 (TS21).

The ninth iteration of the biennial exercise will see ADF forces advancing to contact as part of a campaign to defeat an enemy force operating along the north-eastern coastline.

The land component of TS21 is designed to focus on a combined Australian-US effort to close with and destroy an enemy force that has lodged, defending key terrain.

The land manoeuvre will be executed in concert with amphibious and maritime manoeuvre forces, supported by offensive air support.

The overarching coalition joint force operations will be co-ordinated by the ADF’s Deployable Joint Force Headquarters.

According to Major General Jake Ellwood, Commander of ADF’s Deployable Joint Force Headquarters, the latest TS exercise was essential in guaranteeing that high levels of interoperability were further enhanced between US and Australian forces.

“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.

MAJGEN Ellwood added that TS21 was an opportunity to highlight that it is the sum of many capabilities, drawn together through high levels of interoperability, which makes for a highly potent and agile force.

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

“Our forces will yet again stand ready to operate side by side in any circumstance, be it to provide humanitarian support, to maintain peace or to fight.”
