Deployed Rifle Company TeamsEdit

The Australian Defence Forces maintain a number of Deployed Rifle Company Teams around it's regions of influence. The best example of this would be Rifle Company Team - Butterworth that has existed in one form or another for several decades at the joint Australian-Malaysian Air Force Base in Butterworth, Malaysia.

Other long running examples are the Rifle Company Teams in the Solomon Islands and Timor Leste.

In general these teams are reinforced company groups based on a regular rifle company but with additional elements, like a Battalion Battle Group only company sized.

These units serve as ready regional reaction forces, forward deployed action units, humanitarian and disaster relief ready units and regional training units for foreign allied forces amongst many other roles.
