Exercise Kiwi Koru 14
For the first time in New Zealand Royal New Zealand Air Force’s 40SQN and New Zealand Army’s 5 Movements deliver an MHOV by C-130 to New Plymouth Airport and into Exercise Kiwi Koru 2014.
More than 1200 military personnel including 109 U.S. Marine Corps Forces Pacific (MARFORPAC) and U.S. Army Pacific (USARPAC) forces are involved in Exercise Kiwi Koru 2014 in Taranaki and Waiouru. Ex Kiwi Koru 2014 will continue throughout November.
Involving LAV, infantry, artillery, engineers, signals and combat service support personnel such as medical and logistics, the troops will test themselves in a scenario that aims to restore peace between two fictitious nations, Bekara and Alpira.
Ex Kiwi Koru is an ideal opportunity to test and strengthen interoperability between Air Force and Army.
