Exercise TALISMAN SABRE 2021 (TS21) is the largest bilateral training activity between Australia and the United States.

Held every two years, TS21 aims to test Australian interoperability with the United States and other participating forces in complex warfighting scenarios. In addition to the United States, TS21 involves participating forces from Canada, Japan, Republic of Korea, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom.

The exercise includes a Field Training Exercise incorporating force preparation (logistic) activities, amphibious landings, ground force manoeuvres, urban operations, air combat and maritime operations. Activities peaked from 18 – 31 July across Queensland.

TS21 is a major undertaking for all attending nations and demonstrated the combined capability to achieve large-scale operational outcomes within a COVID-19 safe environment. This was the ninth iteration of TALISMAN SABRE which involved more than 17,000 participants from seven nations.
