Following nine months on deployment in the Middle East, HMAS Warramunga has returned home to a hero’s welcome.
Warramunga made a significant impact on terrorist and criminal organisations by denying them approximately $2.17 billion in funding from illegal narcotics, including 31.8 tonnes of hashish and two tonnes of heroin from 16 smuggling vessels, Defence Connect has reported.
Operation Manitou is the Australian Defence Force’s contribution to support international efforts to promote maritime security, stability and the free flow of legitimate maritime commerce in the Middle East region.
