ADF support to Vietnamese Deployable Medical Facility 


Australia supported Vietnam’s first deployment of a Role 2 field hospital to a United Nations peacekeeping mission through providing two airlifts by Royal Australian Air Force C-17A Globemaster aircraft in late September 2018. 

Additionally, the Australian Defence Force provided the Vietnamese Peacekeepers with English language training and other specialist equipment as part of Australia’s Defence Cooperation Program with Vietnam. 

The strategic airlift was the first time the Vietnamese military partnered with another nation to take its forces overseas.
