A trio of new state-of-the-art Australian warships have been carrying out naval exercises off the country’s east coast, demonstrating their awesome capabilities.
The HMAS Hobart, Brisbane and Sydney are part of the federal government’s $183 billion upgrade of Australia’s naval forces.
The three ships have a missile battery system that is the best in the world, with few other countries given access to the cutting-edge US hardware.
The ships can guard against any threat, from an incoming missile to an attacking ship or jet.
Anti-aircraft Gatling guns onboard are electric-powered and have an extremely high rate of fire, as an added protection.
A pair of Australia’s new F-35 fighters from the RAAF also conducted a flyover during the exercises.
Australia has recently boosted its defence spending amid growing international tensions.
