By The Cove May 16, 2019

The Multi-role Helicopter (MRH) 90 Taipan is an Australian Army platform that can be used for troop transport, search and rescue, special operations and counter-terrorism missions. In April 2018, 8th/9th Royal Australian Regiment (8/9 RAR) and 5th Aviation Regiment (supported by 161st Squadron, 1st Aviation Regiment and School of Army Aviation) conducted Air Assault Training. In this short video members of 8/9 RAR share their experiences of training with the MRH 90 Taipan.
