DescriptionMembers of the 3rd Battalion, Royal Australian Regiment (3RAR) with their Bushmasters and a Dutch-operated Panzerhaubitze 2000 at Tarin Kot in Uruzgan province, Afghanistan. In April 2008 an infantry company was deployed by 3RAR to Uruzgan province as part of Reconstruction Task Force 4. Composed of 41 Australian military units, the task force’s mission was to conduct protected reconstruction operations as part of the Dutch-led Task Force Uruzgan. It successfully developed health, education, and security infrastructure, including the construction of bridges at key river crossings throughout the province and beyond the task force’s area of operations. Upon the mission’s completion 3RAR returned to Australia in October 2008.
