first_img December 8, 2016 The Royal Australian Navy’s mine warfare and clearance diving task group spent two weeks testing its mine warfare capabilities during the Australian Navy’s large-scale exercise Ocean Raider.During the drills, the group coordinated the location and disposal of simulated sea mines from Broken Bay, New South Wales, and in Cockburn Sound, Western Australia.The headquarters team used minehunters, HMA Ships Gascoyne and Huon, and specialised diving unit clearance diving team four to achieve the mission.Their ability to clear and secure access points allowed notional waiting forces to enter by sea and evacuate citizens affected by the conflict.Director of the maritime evaluation team, Commander Max Muller, said the test demonstrated the headquarters and its forces could carry out complex maritime advance force operations in a real time environment.“Live exercise training allows the Navy to test combat effectiveness in a warfighting environment,” Commander Muller said.“This certification confirms Navy’s capability to shape the area of operations and enable successful amphibious operations.”Held from November 14 to December 4, Ocean Raider, involved warships, submarines, aircraft and more than 1,500 Defence personnel, is designed to develop and certify fleets units in task-group-level joint sea combat and is held in locations around Australia.

first_img Press Association He added: “We all recognise the English game is the most honest in the world and has been for many years. At Norwich this season the energy their two wide players expended was phenomenal. They ran 100 miles. That’s an example of the Premier League. “And the Reading game, when it went to 3-2, I thought we were going to lose 30. There are a lot of games I’ve watched this season, when I’ve said to myself ‘are they trying?’ – of course they’re trying. “These teams have 3,000 fans following them away from home. There is no way they could come to Old Trafford and not do their best. That also applies itself to the Etihad, Stamford Bridge, the Emirates or Anfield. That is the nature of the English game.” Stoke are one of the sides who got their noses in front against United earlier in the season, only to eventually lose 4-2. That was at a better time for Tony Pulis’ men though as now they find themselves slithering dangerously close to the drop zone, having collected just six points from their last 13 matches. Stoke are now only three points in front of third-bottom Wigan, having played a game more, and last weekend were beaten on home soil by Aston Villa. The normally rock-solid home support has started to turn against Pulis, whose style of play has started to attract more intense criticism from those who pay to watch it. Still Ferguson anticipates a thorough examination. “It’s always a difficult place to go to,” he said. “Ask any manager or player, you know you have to perform to get a result there. You have to stand up to the mark because they do present a challenge.” Despite Manchester City’s victory at Old Trafford on Monday, the Blues still trail their rivals by 12 points in the Premier League title race. The likelihood is that gap will get even wider this weekend, when United head to Stoke as City are engaged in FA Cup combat. Last week, City boss Mancini claimed one of the reasons why United have such a formidable advantage is that their opponents play with fear against them and believes they cannot win, but Ferguson said: “That’s absolute nonsense. He was maybe looking for a bit of self-sympathy or something like that.” center_img Sir Alex Ferguson has blasted back at Roberto Mancini’s claims Manchester United have it easy and accused the Italian of looking for “self-sympathy”.last_img read more
