Photo Of The Day and we take off to the Combat Training Center, Baturaja, Indonesia. We see soldiers from Australia, Singapore, Indonesia and the United States conducting a multinational field training exercise as part of Exercise Super Garuda Shield.
Super Garuda Shield is part of Operation Pathways and a longstanding annual, bilateral military exercise conducted between the U.S. military and Indonesia National Armed Forces. The event has now expanded to 14 participating nations.
Super Garuda Shield is an annual combined and joint exercise between the Indonesian National Armed Forces (TNI) and the U.S. Indo-Pacific Command (INDOPACOM), designed to strengthen interoperability, capabilities, trust, and cooperation built over decades of shared experiences. The 2022 Super Garuda Shield exercise will be significantly larger in scope and scale than previous exercises, with many nations participating or observing for the first time. In addition to countries actively participating, Canada, France, India, Malaysia, the Republic of Korea, Papua New Guinea, Timor Leste, and the United Kingdom, are expected to join as observer nations.
