NUSHIP Adelaide Staff Learns about LHD

NUSHIP Adelaide personnel are taking advantage of the opportunity to searide in HMAS Canberra to start learning more about the Landing Helicopter Dock.

Adelaide is currently at BAE Systems dockyard in Williamstown, Victoria, while the communications and combat system fit out is completed.

Adelaide’s Deputy Weapons Electrical Engineering Officer Lieutenant Dayong Bao said that seariding in their sister ship was a great opportunity.

It’s a chance to learn the systems and more importantly, talk to the ship’s company onboard Canberra so we can learn from their experiences.

Canberra was commissioned into service on 28 November, last year and has commenced first of class trials in the waters off the east coast of Australia including Jervis Bay.

The Landing Helicopter Docks are capable of conducting complex amphibious operations as well as conducting large scale humanitarian assistance and disaster relief operations.
