New Detachment brings bigger eyes to support Diggers in Afghanistan

The first Australian-leased Heron Unmanned Aerial Vehicle will shortly begin operations supporting Australian troops in Afghanistan.
For the past four months, a small Royal Australian Air Force detachment has been preparing for the delivery of the Australian Heron, by working with the Canadian Heron detachment at Kandahar airfield, drawing on the Canadians’ operational knowledge, experience and facilities.
