A Task Group consisting of four ships and a submarine from the Royal Australian Navy, enhanced by a Royal Australian Air Force maritime patrol aircraft, are visiting India for AUSINDEX 2019, the major, bilateral Navy-to-Navy exchange between Australia and India. First held in India in 2015, this year marks the third biennial iteration of AUSINDEX, with the 2017 iteration held in Australia. AUSINDEX 2019 is the most complex iteration to date, focusing on anti-submarine warfare and tactical maritime manoeuvre. HMAS Canberra, a Canberra-Class Landing Helicopter Dock, is the flagship of the task group, and is joined by HMA Ships Success, Newcastle and Parramatta, and embarked MH-60R maritime combat helicopters and MRH-90 maritime support helicopters. The submarine, HMAS Collins, and a Royal Australian Air Force P8-A Poseidon maritime patrol aircraft have joined the Task Group for AUSINDEX. The task group is visiting India for AUSINDEX 2019 during Indo-Pacific Endeavour 2019 which sees more than 1,200 personnel from the Australian Defence Force participating in a series of key engagement activities with Australia’s regional neighbours.
