Indonesian soldiers complete Bushmaster training with 5RAR
Members of the Indonesian National Armed Forces recently completed training on the Bushmaster in Darwin covering maintenance and operations.
The training was delivered following Australia’s gift of 15 Bushmaster protected mobility vehicles in 2021 by then defence minister Peter Dutton.
The gift was only accepted by Indonesia in April 2023.
According to Defence News, the training package which was carried out in Darwin, included introductory and more advanced operations, vehicle maintenance as well as training on the communications equipment.
Participants commenced the training package on a simulator before graduating to challenging real-life driving courses which included water crossings.
