Bonhomme Richard, part of a combined U.S. –Australia-New Zealand expeditionary strike group, is undergoing a series of scenarios that will increase naval proficiencies in operating against blue-water adversarial threats and in its primary mission of launching Marine forces ashore in the littorals. Talisman Saber is a biennial U.S.-Australia bilateral exercise held off the coast of Australia, meant to achieve interoperability and strengthen the U.S.-Australia alliance.
