Brisbane-based Australian Army soldiers are training troops from the Republic of Fiji Military Forces (RFMF) on how to use Bushmaster protected mobility vehicles (PMV) as part of an ongoing agreement between the two nations.

Government bought refitted Bushmasters from Australia in 2017 for use in peacekeeping operations and training in Fiji, and the Australian Army has been providing the RFMF driver training.

18 Republic of Fiji Military Force soldiers are taking part in the most recent course, run by the 7th Brigade at Gallipoli Barracks and the Greenbank Training Area.

The team are learning how to drive the vehicles in various terrain, recovery methods and maintenance before becoming Bushmaster instructors here.

The 7th Brigade, through the 8th/9th Battalion, Royal Australian Regiment, has a strong relationship with the RFMF and they will continue to work together on training and engagement opportunities throughout the year and into the future.
