HMAS Success Finishes Half of RIMPAC Drills

The sailors and officers of HMAS Success have passed the half way mark of their RIMPAC 2014 experience, and so far, they have given the world’s largest naval exercise an excellent report card.


Success has an important role at RIMPAC, refuelling ships from the 22 participating Pacific Rim nations and allowing them to stay at sea and involved in the various exercise missions.

Success will continue replenishing coalition warships as part of RIMPAC Refuelling Task Force 173 until the end of July.

RIMPAC will conclude on 1 August. The Australian Auxiliary Oiler Replenishment Ship will then return to Pearl Harbor for a few days before setting sail for home.
