Amphibious capability

Amphibious landing craft
The ability for the Army to deploy offshore is crucial to contribute to the Australian Defence Force joint amphibious capability.

The   Army’s contribution will see the dedicated rerolling of the 2nd Battalion, The Royal Australian Regiment (2 RAR), as a specialist amphibious infantry battalion as part of the 1st Division. Together with the integration of supporting reserve companies, 2 RAR is the Army’s lead for generating a pre-landing force in support of a combat brigade.

2 RAR will provide the Army’s pre-landing force and enable the force and operational generation of our contribution to the joint Amphibious Task Group (ATG). .
