The Royal Australian Navy kicked off one of its largest maritime warfare exercises in several locations off the New South Wales coast on November 14.

Exercise Ocean Raider is held from November 14 to December 5 and involves 11 warships and submarines, aircraft and more than 1500 personnel from Australia and the United States.

This is the first year Australian Navy has staged Ocean Raider, which along with Ocean Explorer and Ocean Horizon is a series of exercises designed to train and certify the fleet in task-group-level joint sea combat.
