MRTF-2 was engaged in reconstruction, mentoring and security operations in Uruzgan Province.
The bulk of the MRTF was composed of elements from the 3rd Brigade (Australia) (Townsville), with support elements drawn from the 1st Brigade (Australia) (Darwin) and from the Navy and Air Force.
MRTF-2 included 2 Operational Mentoring and Liaison Teams (OMLTs) whose mission is to assist in the development of the 4th Brigade of the Afghan National Army. Australian soldiers that operate in the OMLTs live with, train and provide support to their Afghan National Army colleagues in patrol bases in Uruzgan Province. In so doing, the OMLTs continue to develop the capability of the 2nd Afghan Kandak and the 4th Afghan Kandak.
MRTF-2 also included two Combat Teams (CT) which undertake security operations within Uruzgan Province in order to enhance the security environment in the province. These CT’s are operationally integrated in the Dutch Battlegroup.
