The Sirius and Lekir undertook navigation and logistics training exercises in late March, supporting the training and capabilities of both countries.

Commander Chris Doherty, Commanding Officer of the Sirius, welcomed the exercise as part of the long relationship between the RAN and the RMN.

“Conducting a replenishment-at-sea optimises how we work together and builds confidence in our ability to re-supply our regional partners under way in a range of environments and conditions,” CMDR Doherty said.

“We have an officer exchange program between our two navies for navigation training that aids regional interoperability and Lekir’s current navigation officer completed his training at the School of Navigation Warfare at HMAS Watson in Australia.”

The HMA Ships Sirius and Anzac began a two-month deployment on 4 March conducting training throughout the Indo-Pacific. Just last week, the HMAS Anzac was called to support Indonesia in their efforts to find the KRI Nanggala.
