Aussie Patrol Boat Training for Border Security


01/17/2017: HMAS Ararat is one of the Royal Australian Navy’s patrol boat fleet based in northern Australia.

 The fleet operates 365 days a year to defend against potential civil maritime threats, including illegal, unregulated and unreported fishing, narcotics trafficking and irregular maritime arrivals.

 In order to provide this continuous capability, the 15 ships and their crews train regularly to ensure they carry out all tasks smoothly, meeting Navy’s mission “to fight and win at sea.”
