 Australia despatched four Australian Army Tiger Armed Reconnaissance Helicopters (ARH) to join the Indo-Pacific Endeavour 2019 (IPE 19) task force in Malaysia, marking the aircraft type’s first overseas deployment.

The four helicopters were transported by an RAAF C-17 to Subang Air Base, located near Kuala Lumpur, on 19 April. The Tigers then flew off in two flights on 21 April to land on HMAS Canberra docked at the Boustead Cruise Centre in Port Klang.

HMAS Canberra and the frigate HMAS Newcastle had arrived on 20 April, while two other ships of the task group, the frigate HMAS Parramatta and replenishment ship HMAS Success, were detached from the main group to other locations.

Are you keeping up with the Australian Army's forays into amphibious warfare?  It's a sight to behold and they're doing it at a "quick step!"
