Non-Combatant Evacuation Operation Exercise

An Army unimog is loaded onto HMAS Balikpapan.

As part of the Minor War Vessel Concentration Period, two Royal Australian Navy ships, HMAS Balikpapan and HMAS Betano took part in a Non-Combatant Evacuation Operation exercise.

A Non-Combatant Evacuation Operation (NEO) is an amphibious operation conducted to relocate threatened non-combatants to a place of safety in a foreign country.

The simulated amphibious operation involved the Australian Army’s 2nd Cavalry Regiment loading an Australian Light Armoured Vehicle (ASLAV), a General Motor Vehicle and three Unimogs onto HMA Ships Balikpapan and Betano.
