B Co. began Exercise Loobye by seizing Nackeroo Airfield at Bradshaw Field Training Area, creating a secure location to conduct a High Mobility Artillery Rocket System Rapid Infiltration. Exercises like Loobye demonstrate MRF-D’s ability to conduct operations as a joint force with the ADF, execute expeditionary operations, like HIRAIN, and exemplify their mutual dedication to being postured and ready to respond to a crisis or contingency in the Indo-Pacific region.
