CORAL SEA (July 16, 2017) Boatswain’s Mate Seaman Roman Horton prepares to attach spanwire aboard the guided-missile destroyer USS Sterett (DDG 104) during a replenishment-at-sea with Royal Australian Navy tanker HMAS Success (AOR 304) as part of Talisman Saber 17. Sterett, part of a combined U.S.-Australia-New Zealand expeditionary strike group (ESG), is undergoing a series of scenarios that will increase proficiencies defending the ESG against blue-water threats so amphibious forces can launch 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.
