Army to get new assault rifle

Today’s issue of Army Newspaper reports that the Army is introducing the enhanced F88 (or EF88) Austeyr rifle into service. Our partner brigade - the Townsville-based 3rd Brigade - will begin receiving the rifle from July.

The EF88 is an exceptional weapon characterised by superior lethality, accuracy, ergonomics, reliability and modularity.
The changes to the original F88 will improve soldiers’ fighting ability in close combat and general combat by upgrading the ergonomics and balance of the rifle and increasing the mounting options for ancillary devices.

Ancillaries include enhanced day sights, image intensifiers, thermal imaging sights, forward grips (basic), forward grips (with bipod), weapon stabilisers, visual illumination devices, one o'clock offset rails, and laser-aiming illumination and ranging devices.

The EF88 rifle can be reconfigured quickly to meet specific mission roles by utilising these weapon ancillaries.

Configurations include: Tier 2 dismounted commander; Tier 2 dismounted marksman; Tier 2 dismounted rifleman, Tier 2 dismounted grenadier; Tier 2 mounted carbine; Tier 2 mounted standard; and Tier 2 mounted grenadier.

The EF88 weapon system is being acquired under Project Land 125-3C.

C-27J Safety Investigation
(Source: Australian Department of Defence; issued May 18, 2016)
The Royal Australian Air Force has commenced a safety investigation after a C-27J Spartan aircraft had an incident on landing at the conclusion of a routine training flight at Waco Airport, Texas, USA at approx. 12am (local US time).

No one was injured in the incident.

The runway was temporarily closed to other aircraft so that the C-27J Spartan could be moved. Air Force thanks local airport, emergency services and security staff who are assisting with the recovery and apologises for the inconvenience to other airfield users.

Safety is a priority for Air Force operations. Air Force aircraft are serviced and flown under a very strict and controlled airworthiness and safety system. All aircraft are under constant surveillance to ensure that they maintain the highest standards.

The flight was a pilot qualification flight for RAAF pilots converting to the new C-27J Spartan battlefield airlifter, flown alongside industry instructors.

Air Force is purchasing ten C-27J aircraft, of which two have been delivered to Australia.

Les Tigre australiens enfin opérationnels

Actualités  Nathan Gain  24 mai, 2016  



Les informations de l’Australian National Audit Office (la « cour des comptes » locale) relayées en février par FOB étaient donc justes : les hélicoptères Tigre australiens seront bien totalement opérationnels en 2016. Il aura fallu attendre 11 ans après l’entrée en service du premier appareil pour que les 22 Tigre « Armed Reconnaissance Helicopter » (ARH) obtiennent finalement, le 18 avril dernier, leur capacité opérationnelle complète, rapporte le magazine mensuel Australian Aviation. « Le Tigre est prêt pour une pleine capacité opérationnelle avec un régiment complet de deux escadrons », a confirmé le commandant de la 16e Aviation Brigade, le général de brigade Michael Prictor.

2015″ (Crédit photo: ministère de la Défense australien)


Cette annonce pourrait relativiser les critiques essuyées par le programme depuis ses débuts et les récentes rumeurs faisant mention d’un probable retrait des appareils dès 2020. Car bien qu’ « il reste encore du travail » selon Tony Fraser, PDG d’Airbus Helicopters Australia Pacific, le coût de l’heure de vol a diminué de 30% entre 2014 et 2016, tandis que le taux de disponibilité a augmenté de 40% sur la même période et se rapproche des 4 800 heures de vol espérées pour 2016.

Outre une meilleure disponibilité, Canberra s’est engagé à débloquer entre 300 et 500M€ afin de mener le Tigre vers une pleine maturité capacitaire et lui permettre de réaliser ses missions durant la décennie à venir. Entre autres améliorations en cours, le département de la Défense australien et les industriels sembleraient en passe de trouver une solution au problème de mise en réseau des Tigre ARH, opérée via le système de gestion de champ de bataille Eurogrid. L’Australie étudie actuellement un certain nombre d’options pour ce programme lancé en 2014 et doté de 12.8M€, dont l’intégration d’une nouvelle liaison de données proposée par Elbit Systems Australia. Le Tigre est aussi sur le point d’entamer sa certification en environnement naval avec le début des essais d’appontage sur le navire d’assaut amphibie HMAS Adelaïde, suivis par les premiers essais en vol à l’orée 2017.

L’Australie maintient également un dialogue avec ses partenaires français, espagnol et allemand concernant de futures améliorations conjointes. Selon Fraser, la question de la modernisation des Tigre vers le standard « Mark III » est maintenant entièrement entre les mains du gouvernement australien.

Video: Australia’s 1st P-8A Poseidon Maritime Patrol Aircraft Completes Maiden Flight

Australia’s first P-8A Poseidon maritime patrol aircraft has completed its maiden flight. The aircraft flew a short distance from Renton Airfield to Boeing Field in Washington State USA, to where the P-8A’s sophisticated mission systems will be installed as part of project AIR 7000.





The $5.4 billion P-8A program will provide Australia’s future manned maritime patrol and response aircraft capability, replacing in part the AP-3C Orion aircraft. The P-8A Poseidon is 39.5 metres long, has a maximum takeoff weight of 85,820kg and a wingspan of 37.6m. Powered by two jet engines, it has a top speed is 907km/h with a maximum range of 7,500km. With a saving of US$260m compared to the initial budget, the P-8A Poseidon aircraft were acquired through a cooperative program with the United States Navy and contracted to Boeing Defence Space and Security. A Royal Australian Air Force crew will fly the aircraft to Australia in late 2016 following post-production checks and acceptance.


Based on Boeing’s Next-Generation 737-800 commercial airplane, the P-8A offers the worlds’ most advanced anti-submarine, anti-surface warfare and intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance capabilities. The Navy has deployed four P-8A patrol squadrons since operations began in 2013.

First two Armoured Modular Vehicles has arrived in Australia
May 26, 201

AE System’s first two 30 tonne Armoured Modular Vehicles has arrived in Australia and ready for its battle to win a place in the Land 400 down select.






Head of Land Systems Ian Smith said the lethal AMV35s headlined the company’s bid to build 225 new armoured vehicles for the Australian Army in the Land 400 contract worth up to $10 billion, that reported by www.adelaidenow.com.au.

They arrived in Adelaide after their platform was built by Patria in Finland and a BAE Systems turret was fitted in Sweden, and they were ready to be handed over to the army for testing and evaluation if BAE Systems moves to the next stage.

Last month, the Federal Government put the down select announcement on hold, so Mr Smith said in the meantime the two completed vehicles would be transported around the country and used to engage 65 Australian suppliers it had identified to be potentially involved in the project.

“And we’re testing them out of transit from Sweden ensuring they are ready to go to participate in the 12 month test and evaluation process,” Mr Smith said.

The vehicles are 8m long, 3.5m high and just less than 3m wide with the BAE Systems turret fitted to meet army requirements. A third vehicle is in Sweden waiting for shipment if BAE Systems is successful in the down select for the Land 400 Phase Two project.

The AMV35 will be fitted with BAE Systems-Hägglunds’ E35 turret which is used on the tracked armoured vehicle CV90 family, which is called CV9035.

The BAE Systems E35 is a two-man turret armed with a 35mm dual-feed automatic cannon Bushmaster III which has a rate of fire 150 – 200 rds/min. The CV9035 has 2 belts of 35 rounds each loaded in the main gun, which is what should be expected from the AMV 35 CRV as well.

A total of 140 further rounds are stored inside the CV9035, a similar number of additional ammunition might be stored in the AMV 35 CRV.A 7.62mm coaxial machine is mounted to the left side of the main armament. The turret also carries six 76-mm grenade launchers, which are arranged in two clusters of three launchers mounted on each side of the turret.

Australia outlines F-35 opportunities for local industry
Jon Grevatt, Bangkok - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly
27 May 2016
The Australian government has pointed to a new contract secured by Victoria-based Marand Precision Engineering as evidence of local industry's increasing involvement in the Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) programme.

Secured earlier this month, Marand's contract calls on the company to design and produce a training system to support installation of the aircraft's engine and lift fan. The first training systems are scheduled to be delivered in 2018. Marand is also producing F-35 vertical tails and tooling and has provided other engineering services for the Lockheed Martin-led programme.

In a press release issued by the Australian Department of Defence (DoD) on 26 May, Air Vice-Marshal Leigh Gordon, the head of the F-35 programme within the DoD's Capability Acquisition and Sustainment Group, said Marand's work on the F-35 represents local industry's increased participation in the programme.

Australie : le sous-marin allemand était trop bruyant


Publié le 30/05/2016 17:59


Une vue d'artiste du Type 216 que le chantier allemand TKMS proposait à l'Australie. (Image : TKMS)


Le sous-marin allemand n’était pas assez silencieux. Selon le journal The Australian, c’est la raison pour laquelle l’Australie n’a pas retenu l’offre du chantier TKMS, lui préférant celle du français DCNS, pour la fourniture de douze sous-marins conventionnels.

The Australian, principal quotidien australien à diffusion nationale, affirme qu’une délégation australienne s’est rendue à Kiel, le vendredi 13 mai, pour le debriefing de l’appel d’offres. Selon le journal, elle a expliqué à des représentants du chantier TKMS et du gouvernement allemand que leur offre avait été retoquée en raison d’un niveau « inacceptable » de « bruit rayonné » à une certaine fréquence.

De ce fait, la marine australienne aurait jugé que le design proposé par TKMS, le Type 216, n’offrait pas de garantie suffisante, en particulier pour les missions de renseignement à proximité de la côte. Ce paramètre technique ne figurait pas dans l’appel d’offres car il s’agit d’une information classifiée, ont ajouté les Australiens, qui se sont refusé à préciser si le bruit rayonné jugé excessif provenait de la coque, de la propulsion ou de l’hélice.

Les Allemands n’ont guère goûté cette explication. « Les capacités du complexe militaro-industriel auraient aisément permis de résoudre un problème technique de cette nature si seulement les Australiens avaient été plus communicatifs à ce sujet avant que nous ne soumettions notre offre », a déclaré une source allemande à The Australian.


Campagne en coulisses de DCNS


À l’inverse, les Australiens auraient apprécié le caractère particulièrement furtif du Shortfin Barracuda proposé par DCNS. Celui-ci reprend des solutions techniques utilisées sur le sous-marin nucléaire d’attaque Barracuda destiné à la Marine nationale. Il s’agit en particulier du système de pompe-hélice qui donnera au Shortfin Barracuda, selon Paris, une vitesse silencieuse tactique supérieure à celle de ses concurrents allemand et japonais dotés d’hélices classiques.

The Australian affirme que DCNS « a travaillé dur en coulisses l’an passé pour semer le doute dans l’esprit des responsables australiens au sujet du niveau de bruit du sous-marin de TKMS ». Ainsi, DCNS aurait effectué une modélisation du bruit rayonné du Type 216 à partir de la signature acoustique de son propre sous-marin Scorpène pour la comparer à celle des sous-marins de type Barracuda.

Une délégation australienne s’est également rendue au Japon les 12 et 13 mai. Selon The Australian, les mêmes questions de furtivité auraient joué en défaveur de l’offre japonaise qui reposait sur une évolution du sous-marin de type Soryu déjà en service.

Australia marks first operational deployment of upgraded ANZAC-class frigate

Ridzwan Rahmat, Singapore - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly
07 June 2016



The Royal Australian Navy (RAN) marked the first operational deployment of an upgraded ANZAC (MEKO 200)-class frigate when HMAS Perth (157) departed the naval base at Rockigham, Western Australia, on 7 June for the Middle East.

The vessel will support multinational counter-piracy and -smuggling efforts in the Gulf, the Gulf of Aden, the Red Sea, and the Indian Ocean Region on a mission that the Australian government refers to as Operation 'Manitou'.

"HMAS Perth was the first anti-ship missile defence [ASMD] upgraded ANZAC frigate and so we are extremely proud and excited to be the first upgraded ship to deploy operationally," said Captain Ivan Ingham, Perth 's commanding officer, in a statement released by the Australian Department of Defence on 7 June.

Perth in 2010 received a package of combat system upgrades that have been designed to enhance the platform's defence capabilities against modern anti-ship missiles. It was the first ANZAC-class ship to receive the package under Australia's Project SEA 1448 Phase 2.

"While we take great satisfaction in knowing we will deploy with the world's leading missile defence capability, we also realise that our highly capable surveillance sensors and new mission combat helicopter will also make a significant additional contribution to our mission," Capt Ingham said in reference to the MH-60R helicopter that will be embarked on Perth for the mission.

Perth is scheduled to be deployed for about six months until late December

U.S., Australia delay plans to send more Marines Down Under
Matthew L. Schehl, Marine Corps Times 1:12 p.m. EDT June 10, 2016


The U.S. still plans to send 2,500 Marines to Australia each year — but that large of a rotation won’t happen until at least 2020.

American and Australian officials are still slogging through the details of sending a full Marine air-ground task force Down Under some five years after President Obama announced plans to send 2,500 Marines there annually starting in 2016.

The task force, known as Marine Rotational Force-Darwin, spends about six months of each year deployed to Australia's Northern Territory. The Marines began deploying there soon after the Obama administration announced its Pacific pivot, a policy that reoriented resources after the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan to counter China's rise.

Australian defense officials declined to say exactly why the timeline was pushed back, but confirmed they’re working with the U.S. to bring a full MAGTF through Darwin "by around 2020."

"Each year the U.S. and Australia work closely together to determine the exact size and composition of each rotation in addition to the activities that the Marine Rotational Force-Darwin will undertake during their six-month deployment to the region," said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity.


There are currently 1,250 Marines in Australia. The rotations have expanded to a battalion landing team since the first company-size deployment — about 200 Marines — in April 2012.

Since then, there have been about six rounds of negotiations between the countries as officials hammer out how costs should be shared and facilities used, said Andrew Shearer, a former Australian national security adviser who's now with the Center for Strategic and International Studies, a Washington think tank.

“What seems to have happened is basically those negotiations have bogged down pretty badly,” he said. “I think that’s quite unfortunate.”

While another 1,250 more Marines in Australia aren't likely to tip the strategic balance in the western Pacific, Shearer said delaying the plan sends the wrong signal at a time when tensions are growing in the South China Sea.

Sharing the costs

The U.S. and Australian have invested millions to boost the size of the Marine rotations — but both militaries are facing budget crunches, and that has created some friction.

As the Marine Corps ramps up rotations to Japan, Australia and eventually Guam, the service has allocated billions of dollars to fund those moves. And the Aussies spent $11 million upgrading army and air force bases to accommodate more U.S. Marines in the Northern Territory.

But Shearer said the two countries need to focus on the long-term benefits to the agreement instead of getting bogged down in budget negotiations.

“From my understanding, the difference between the two sides is a few tens of millions of dollars annually,” he said. “Both sides need to get back to focusing on the big picture ... rather than this sort of unseemly haggling.”

The agreement benefits both sides, he said. Rotating more Marines through Australia is just one piece of the Marine Corps' plans to base roughly 15 percent of its force in Hawaii and beyond in coming years. And the Aussies are in the process of standing up their first-ever marine amphibious force, according to a white paper released this spring that completely revamped Australia's defense strategy.

Having Marines and Australian soldiers training together closely will be vital to that strategy's success, Shearer said.

“Australia will operate at extended ranges and be able to shape and influence out into maritime Southeast Asia,” he said. “What’s laid out in the white paper is really the biggest modernization of the Royal Australian Navy since the Second World War.”

That strategy calls for a greater emphasis on a more aggressive maritime strategy. Its marine amphibious force will be built around two new Canberra-class landing helicopter dock assault ships. The plan also includes a $90 billion investment in shipbuilding over the next decade.

The 1,250 Marines currently deployed to Australia will train with local soldiers through October. Most are housed at the Australian army's Robertson Barracks, with some staying at the nearby Royal Australian Air Force Base Darwin.

Most of this year’s rotation are from 1st Battalion, 1st Marines out of Camp Pendleton, California. They have an aggressive training schedule that will include several bilateral exercises.

Rheinmetall's Lynx Infantry Vehicle Targets Australian Market
Andrew Chuter, Defense News 5:33 p.m. EDT June 14, 2016


PARIS — Rheinmetall took the wraps off it’s new Lynx infantry fighting vehicle at the Eurosatory show in Paris on Tuesday, signaling not just the entry of a new contender in world export markets for this type of platform but that Australia was one of the German company’s main early sales target.

“As we launched it in Australian camouflage it’s a pretty good indication that we are targeting it as one of the key starting markets for the Lynx,” said Ben Hudson, the head of Rheinmetall’s vehicle systems division.

The company is already expecting to hear in the next few week whether its Boxer 8x8 armored personnel carrier bid has been successful as part of Australia’s Land 400 requirement.

Hudson said the vehicle was already generating considerable interest among potential infantry fighting vehicle purchasers other than Australia.

Lockheed Martin Harnesses Australian R&D for Next-Gen Radar
Nigel Pittaway, Defense News 7:25 a.m. EDT June 17, 2016


MELBOURNE, Australia — Lockheed Martin, in partnership with Australia’s Defence Science and Technology (DST) Group, is developing enhancements for the next generation of Over-the-Horizon Radar (OTHR) to detect and track small, fast-moving targets at extremely long ranges and at night.

The US defense giant has invested in the Australian Research and Development (R&D) Programme with a view to selling the capability in the international market place, including the United States. The defense-industry team announced the successful completion of Phase 1 of validation work on what is known as Project Coorong on June 8.

“From a Lockheed Martin perspective, a lot of the problems that DST Group had identified in that area is really about a problem space that one of our international customers would potentially want resolved in the next-generation Over-the-Horizon Radar,” said Jack Mahoney, Lockheed Martin Australia’s general manager.

Mahoney pointed to Brazil’s Sistema de Gerenciamento do Amazonia Azul maritime awareness program of 2014 as an example of the applications the company sees for Project Coorong in the export market.

“This technology could have been applicable to that space as well, but at the same time the US was also clearly interested in trying to understand how OTHR fits into their layer of systems-of-systems, from a detection perspective,” Mahoney said.

“We’ve been chasing some international markets for around ten years. Modeling has suggested that this solution is the way the problem could be solved, and we’ve now fielded the technology that is helping us to prove that modeling. If the experiment proves true over the next year, potentially this type of system would have a direct appeal to the US.

“It’s about now being able to sit with potential customers and ask them about their problem space, and then tell them we might have the capability to allow them to solve those problems.”

OTHRs typically operate at lower frequencies during night hours, due to a diminished ionosphere, and this significantly reduces the radar cross section of small targets, such as cruise missiles.

The work was initiated by a Royal Australian Air Force requirement to detect and track targets such as the next generation of hypersonic cruise missiles.

The R&D work is now validating years of modeling conducted by DST Group, but Gordon Frazer, acting chief of DST Group's Cyber and Electronic Warfare Division, said the project had to be placed in mothballs in order to concentrate on work to support the upgrade of Australia’s operational Jindalee Operational Radar Network.

However the project was revived following a strategic partnering alliance between DST Group and Lockheed Martin in 2014.

“We were in the situation where we’d done a lot of work. We were pleased with what we’d done [but] we would have liked to have validated it to get that closure,” Frazer said. “We exposed it to Lockheed Martin and they indicated that they could help us. DST Group is delighted that something we’ve done has gone so smoothly into industry and we’ve also been delighted with the relationship we have.”

C295 : Bientôt des contacts secs pour le système de ravitaillement en vol



Airbus Defence & Space (DS) continue de développer un système modulaire qui permettra de convertir l'avion de transport tactique C-295 en ravitailleur en vol. Le système est destiné principalement au ravitaillement des hélicoptères mais permettra aussi au C-295 de ravitailler d'autres aéronefs à voilure fixe dotés de turbopropulseurs.

Le système est composé d'une manche de ravitaillement rétractable et d'un réservoir supplémentaire pouvant être embarqué dans la soute du C-295. La manche est déployée depuis la rampe arrière de l'appareil. L'ensemble du système pèse environ 7 tonnes et permet au C-295 de ravitailler d'autres aéronefs grâce au carburant de ce réservoir supplémentaire mais aussi depuis ses propres soutes internes.

Les essais du systèmes sont déjà bien avancés. Airbus a testé entre autre le déploiement et la récupération de la manche en vol. Des essais de proximité avec un autre C-295 et un H225M ont également été effectués, avec et sans la manche. Ces essais ont permis de mesurer la stabilité de la manche et le niveau des perturbations aérodynamiques derrière le C-295.

Des essais de contact secs, c'est à dire sans transmission de carburant sont prévus pour juillet 2016 avec un C-295 puis pour novembre avec un hélicoptère H225M.

Selon Airbus DS, cette solution intéresse déjà plusieurs clients potentiels dont l'Australie.

Australian PC-21s to Get TERPROM


21 Juni 2016

Pilatus has selected UTC Aerospace Systems' TERPROM terrain referenced navigation (TRN) system for the Australian Defense Force's (ADF) Pilatus PC-21 training aircraft. UTC Aerospace announced the selection on 13 June.

The system will be fitted on all 49 ADF PC-21 aircraft, providing trainee crews with obstruction warning and cueing, predictive ground collision avoidance and drift-free terrain referenced navigation.

TERPROM offers TRN capabilities for navigation, including in GPS-denied and low-level environments. It uses a loaded digital map and on-board sensors for ground collision avoidance and obstruction warning, while maintaining zero forward electronic emissions.

UTC Aerospace Systems will also provide simulator software for the ADF's ground-based training equipment.

Kevin Pindard, managing director, UTC Aerospace Systems Sensors and Integrated Systems, said: ‘This combination of ground-based and airborne TERPROM software allows us to support our customer, Pilatus, in delivering world-class pilot training to the ADF. With this innovative technology already in use on the Australian jet trainers, there is commonality for crew across training systems.’

Australian army gets three new CH-47F Chinook helicopters
Jun 25, 2016194

In a major boost to Army’s medium lift helicopter capability, CASG has delivered three additional CH-47Fs Chinooks two and half months ahead of schedule. That reported by defense-studies.blogspot.com.

The addition of three CH-47Fs to the existing fleet of seven significantly expands Army’s battlefield capability in the areas of air mobile, air assault, aero medical evacuation and amphibious operations, as well as humanitarian assistance and disaster relief.

The three new Chinooks are straight off the Boeing production line and are fitted with the latest US Army technologies, including updated avionics and next generation self-protection systems.

Executive Officer Cargo Helicopter Management Unit Major Michael Hansen, said the success of the project represents a significant amount of negotiation, contract work and governmental liaison.

“Achieving delivery of three new aircraft inside four months demonstrates highly effective and coordinated project acquisition between the US Army, Vice Chief of the Defence Force Group, the Capability Acquisition and Sustainment Group and Army Aviation,” he said.

“By employing the foreign military sales strategy the ADF also leverages the benefits of being part of a much larger fleet, which is growing to almost 500 CH-47Fs flying with the US Army.

“Not only does the ADF see the benefits of scale in the initial purchase price but the ongoing cost of consumable and repairable items is greatly reduced.”

Australia's Woomera test range to be upgraded to 'world's best'

Julian Kerr, Sydney - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly
27 June 2016



Raytheon Australia has been awarded a AUD297 million (USD219 million) contract to remediate and upgrade the Woomera military test range in south Australia to make it the most advanced facility of its type anywhere, Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull announced on 27 June.

The Woomera test range is located within the Woomera Range Complex, which covers 122,000 km 2 , roughly the size of England.

Speaking at the opening of a Raytheon naval and integration headquarters in Adelaide, Turnbull said the decision to remediate the facility and upgrade its measuring, monitoring and sensor systems would make Woomera "the world's most advanced test range".

Aussies et Kiwis défileront le 14 juillet

Actualités Nathan Gain 29 juin, 2016



C’est désormais confirmé : pour la première fois depuis 1880, des soldats australiens et néo-zélandais descendront les Champs-Elysées lors du traditionnel défilé militaire du 14 juillet. Une présence symbolique, alors que la France s’apprête à fêter le centenaire des batailles de la Somme (1er juillet), de Fromelles (19 juillet) et de Pozières (23 juillet). Autant de batailles durant lesquelles l’ANZAC (Australian and New-Zealand Army Corps) a joué un rôle majeur.

Si peu d’informations ont filtré jusqu’à présent concernant la présence de l’Australie, confirmée hier par l’ambassade de France à Canberra, les journaux néo-zélandais ont quant à eux dévoilé les détails du contingent appelé à défiler sur « la plus belle avenue du monde ».

Selon un article publié le 28 juin par le New-Zealand Herald, l’ensemble des couleurs des régiments ayant combattu sur le sol français seront hissées par 86 hommes et femmes pour la première fois en dehors du sol néo-zélandais. Hormis les trois composantes traditionnelles, la délégation néo-zélandaise amènera dans ses valises les couleurs d’unités certes plus « discrètes » mais tout aussi valeureuses, à l’image du corps dentaire royal néo-zélandais, ou encore de l’aumônerie.

L’ensemble du contingent sera précédé d’une section de guerriers Maoris issus des trois branches de l’armée. Il sera lui-même dirigé par le lieutenant-colonel Eugène Whakahoehoe, qui pour l’occasion portera le célèbre « kau huruhuru Nga Tapuwae », un manteau de plumes maori décerné par l’armée néo-zélandaise en reconnaissance d’une conduite exemplaire.
