US Navy Tests Amphibious Concept at Talisman Saber Exercise

ROCKHAMPTON, Australia — The U.S. Navy has put its up-gunned expeditionary strike group concept into practice within a realistic war-fighting scenario, with allied surface combatants joining an amphibious ready group, or ARG, and its embarked Marines for a major exercise off the coast of Australia.

The Bonhomme Richard ARG was joined by a surface action group, or SAG, made up of the U.S. destroyer Sterett and four Australian frigates at Exercise Talisman Saber 2017, which saw American and Australian forces carry out two major amphibious landings at Australia’s Shoalwater Bay Training Area.



According to Royal Australian Navy Capt. Guy Holthouse, sea combat commander for the Talisman Saber 2017 Combined Amphibious Force, the up-gunned ESG was pitted against a very active and capable adversary that presented a mix of surface, air and subsurface threats using real submarines, aircraft and ships throughout the exercise, which added training value to both U.S. and Australian forces.

Rear Adm. Marc Dalton, commander of the U.S. Navy’s Amphibious Force 7th Fleet, added that Talisman Saber was used “to work on concept development (of the up-gunned ESG), especially for the cruiser/destroyer/frigate integration into the force as we build towards adding the F-35B.”


Dalton noted that the amphibious assault ship Wasp, which will replace the Bonhomme Richard as the Navy’s forward-deployed big-deck amphibious ship in Japan this fall, will start deploying the F-35B at sea in the region in early 2018 and will represent “the first opportunity to operate with the complete package of the up-gunned ESG.”

In addition, a Sikorsky MH-60R Seahawk anti-submarine helicopter from the aircraft carrier Ronald Reagan was also embarked onboard the Bonhomme Richard for a short duration during the exercise, which Amphibious Force 7th Fleet said was for “practicing the up-gunned ESG concept in providing surface/subsurface defense of the ESG.”


Dalton told Defense News that embarking the MH-60R onboard the Bonhomme Richard is one of several options being evaluated to “dynamically reconfigure the capabilities” of the amphibious forces, which he described as being very flexible; “what we’re looking for is what the right situation would be to when we want to bring that capability onto the amphibious ships and what the trade-offs are.”

    2. You know that is untrue. The US navy have a mass amount of rss and assets compared to TNI. They alone can whack the whole ASEAN region combined. Even if the other 3 superpowers russia, china and india were to team up the US navy is still years and strength ahead of them. Being a naval power is very difficult alone. Being a global naval power requires lots of money, and manpower. Even the russians and Indians admit themselves that the US navy is unmatch. China is undergoing a huge makeover for their navy it is likely in the long term they will become the 2nd global naval power. US navy can fight on multiple fronts around the globe. They have a strong based air superiority and sensors, a strong combined fleet, multiple fleets spanning across the globe at once and the ability to fuse all together. They also have amphibious capability even though that is the marines role. Talking about marines u know there is a joke when the navy has to deal with dirty things they say send in the marines! Lol. Marines got their backs and they are the best marine force in the world as well. Marines is like the brother of the navy they always support each other although it is unclear who is abang and adik as they always help each other. The marines alone have their own navy, airforce and army. After all they are expeditionary forces. The US airforce is their cousin they will come if they need help. U want to fight the US navy u might as well get the whole ASIAN navies together to defeat them lol. Maybe even oceania as well(Australia, newzeland). Pity though as the british empire was a global naval dominant force now their navy is in a very struggling state. Getting smaller and smaller now only capable of defending themselves and the neighbours. I wonder if they can even support nato should there be trouble. The french better take the lead if the brits cant sustain. Alot of expensive programmes is wasting their money.

    3. Indonesia have a good relation with the Russia..even their SF, Kopaska can handle the marines & navy seals. Indonesia will be a new power in this region while back up by the ruskie. The US means nothing. The TNI AL can handle the US Navy & the Australia should beware of this threat. For the airforce, TNI AU gonna have the Su35..while the F35 are not proven yet,the Su35 will be a nightmare to the US airforce.

    7. Never think highly of yourselves. That is a weakness. U are in a different league. Dont compare to yourselves with superpowers. Your elite forces are not superman. That is smth many think too high off. U see nations bragging abt their special forces or elite troopers as if they are superman. Reality is no! In fact the chances of success for special ops is low that is why they train these guys hard to increase their survival. U look at special forces conducting ops worldwide u hear their failure often. It is sad that elite men have to go through this thought that people expect them to be some heros in the movies when they are not. They are human beings. 1 battilon of infantry? A battalion? Train to but is it a reality? Do u expect that these elite men of yours can do that? I find it an exeggeration at most a company. If it happens either its luck or a miracle or they were engaging a bunch of newbies. Heck i bet even those saudis could defeat that 1 guy unless they run lol. America will carpet bomb the heck out of u now u got a crazy US president. However he wants to be friends with russia. Having the mindset that another country has your back is a fallacy even if they r your ally. There is a saying no one owes u a living. U owe it to yourselves. Superpowers are tired of playing saviours. If u think so highly with your elite men then u shouldnt even bother thinking of russia coming to save the day

      Hapus
    8. Elite forces globallg deserve better respect appropriately. Just leave them to do their job. We respect for them being one of the best among the rest. We should never brag about them as they themselves will not like it as if they are some superstars or heroes. Yes they are heroes to our country but not in a way that they are superheroes in the movies. In the end regardless of your unit they tell u one thing you are expendable.

  3. Uncle Sam is stll strong no joke lol. He will carpart bomb the crap outta u if you mess with him. NK is lucky the crazy US president is still holding back and diplomatic solutions are still on the table. U dont want uncle sam to carpert bomb u. B52s, B1s, B2s. Heck they are alrdy making the nex gen bomber B21 if im not mistaken. Their superiority fighters still dominates. The f22s. Any russian or china trolls know that f22s are unmatched. A pakFa does not fit as a 5th gen fighter. It still uses the same era of engines and similat avionics of legacy jets. The F35 is still young and has yet to mature. Have to wait for post 2021 production. That improve model is what they have been waiting for. No restrictions n able to pull full 9Gs more payload and hardpoints inside. Faster. Thats what everyone is waiting for not those LRIP F35s. Blk 3F is the one that starts the improvements. So far those LRIP F35s have shown good progress. Exercise red flag in US. It is the most complex and realistic airoborne exercise in the world. The F35s participation of red flag earlier this year got a 21:0 kill ration. It even surprised the military after all it's problems it can deliver. Still the f35 can also contribute to kills indirectly as it is a system of systems it can also enhance legacy fighters ability to fight. Force multiplyer is enhanced. F35s are not meant to dog fight rmb that. F22s do that role. Of course the f35 should have dog fight better than f16s as that is the platform it replaces. It is like an air missile truck. Delivering your stikes where u want and stay away from the front lines. See first kill first. It works. Last time missiles and radars were lousy during the early stage of the cold war. Today these missiles dominates the airspace.
