TOWNSVILLE-based 171 Avn Sqn Black Hawks recently migrated south to Holsworthy for the squadron’s first dedicated support activity to Special Operations Command (SOCOMD).

The helicopters and crew made the long flight to support a monthlong series of counter terrorist training exercises.

The helicopters enabled Special Forces’ soldiers to practice roping and rappelling from helicopters and inserting into restrictive areas by day and night.

The month-long exercise ended with full mission profile activities in a variety of testing scenarios.

CO 171 Avn Sqn, Lt-Col Stephen Clynk, said the exercise was one of the most important events for the squadron this year.

“This activity allowed us to work closely with all of the SOCOMD units we might support on operations,” Lt-Col Clynk said.

“The squadron has gained a great deal out of the exercise and we look forward to working closely with SOCOMD units well into the future.”

During the month-long exercise the choppers launched from RAAF Base Williamtown, Naval Air Station Nowra and the surrounding areas.

Lt-Col Clynk said the training was designed to cause the least amount of impact to local residents.

“We employed restricted flight paths and other techniques to reduce the effect of helicopter noise on the community, and overall we’ve received positive feedback from locals near the training,” Lt- Col Clynk said.

Working in consultation with local residents enabled realistic and demanding training at ADF facilities and in public areas.

Deputy Special Operations Commander – Australia Brig Tim McOwan said the exercise objectives were based on contemporary threats within the new security environment.

“The details of the exercise scenarios are closely guarded beforehand to ensure SOCOMD responds in a realistic manner,” Brig McOwan said.

“Realistic training allows us to identify opportunities to improve the national counter-terrorism capability to prevent, respond to and recover from threats of terrorism.”

The arrival of the six Black Hawks to some remote country towns did arouse public curiosity.

“Public safety, as always, was paramount so we liaised closely with the NSW Police officers and SES volunteers to designate safe vantage points for residents wishing to view aspects of the training,” Brig McOwan said.

Talking to a couple of guys overseas, they said they ran into a few NZSAS in the mess hall. So I dare say they are still running operations in Afghanistan

Friendship is not the word;
But deep in that body of marching men
The soul of a nation stirred.

AusMilitary.com is Australia's leading military discussion forum. Originally formed back in 2004 as AusSpecialForces.com as a forum for, by, and about the Australian Special Forces, the forum has since widened it's scope to include all members and branches of the ADF as well as our honoured guests and allies from overseas. Despite some sections being open to the public, the forum still enjoys the membership and advice of respected members of the Special Forces and Special Operations Forces both local and international, as well as those from elite specialities in the conventional forces. From recruit training right up to SF selection tips - if it's frank and honest advice you're after, you'll find it here.
