The Australian Navy Is Way More Badass Than You Realise

G'day, cobbers. Welcome to the frigate HMAS Toowoomba.

This doc was made for the National Geographic Channel, and it's a good look into life aboard the Toowoomba as it set out for a deployment to the Middle East on an anti-piracy mission. It's a lot like that doc a while back about the HMDS Absalon, a Danish ship on a similar assignment.

But this one is more 'Roo.

    Do they show them paying off people smugglers to turn their boats around, because that is badass as F!?
