Exercise BERSAMA SHIELD 2013

Members of the Five Power Defence Agreement (FPDA) namely the UK, Australia, New Zealand, Malaysia and Singapore have recently conducted Ex BERSAMA SHIELD 2013 at the South China Sea, Singapore and Peninsular Malaysia from April 8 until April 18.

This year’s BERSAMA SHIELD exercise was unique as this has been the first time RAF Typhoons had participated in the annual multinational combined exercise. The Typhoon had made an appearance during the Ex BERSAMA LIMA in 2011 where they were forward deployed to RMAF’s Butterworth AFB supported by VC-10 tanker at Subang AFB.
