HMAS Toowoomba Operating in the Middle East


HMAS Toowoomba is currently providing support to the United States led International Maritime Security Construct (IMSC) in the Middle East Region as part of the ship’s six month deployment on Operation MANITOU.

Toowoomba’s Ship’s Company of 190 will support both the IMSC and the Combined Maritime Force 150 as part of the Australian Defence Force’s contribution to support international efforts to promote security, stability and prosperity in the region.

This is the 68th rotation of a Royal Australian Navy unit in the Middle East Region since 1990 and is Toowoomba’s sixth deployment to the region and second as part of Operation MANITOU.
