Support Element: Middle East

Five NZDF personnel in the Middle East provide a support mechanism for NZDF force elements deployed to Afghanistan and also assist co-located coalition partners with the movement of freight and personnel. 

In addition to the five NZDF personnel, RNZAF crew and support staff from 40 Squadron (C130 Hercules and Boeing 757) deploy for short periods to provide air transport to Afghanistan when required.
