HMAS Arunta Conducts Capacity Building with Tanzanian Authorities

Between 21-22 June HMAS Arunta visited the Tanzanian port of Dar es Salaam. The frigate has been supporting Combined Task Force 150 and its counter-terrorism mission in the Northern Indian Ocean. HMAS Arunta is now on her way home after a highly successful mission and has now been replaced by HMAS Newcastle as part of Australia’s contribution to CMF.

Port visits provide warships with opportunities to refuel, carry out repairs, restock supplies and time for the crew to rest and refresh themselves. They are also important engagement opportunities whereby the vessel and its crew can interact with the host nation.

In Dar es Salaam members of the crew of Arunta provided training to the local law enforcement detachment (LEDET) on outboard motor engineering, boat handling and first aid.
