EXERCISE TALISMAN SABRE 2005
COMBINED JOINT INFORMATION BUREAU
There has been ongoing media speculation on the use of Depleted Uranium (DU) ordnance during Exercise TALISMAN SABRE 05.
These suggestions are incorrect and misleading.
As we have previously stated on a number of occasions, DU will not be used in TS05 by either Australian or US forces.
This is unequivocal.
For more information about Ex TS05 media and the public can ring the toll-free number, 1800-501-072, or visit the Australian and US web sites,
