The Force Support Unit (FSU) is a joint unit providing logistic support, camp maintenance and theatre induction training for Australian Defence Force elements in the Middle East Area of Operations (MEAO).
The current Force Support Unit Three (FSU-3) is primarily made up of Army personnel with numerous Navy and Air Force members drawn from various units and bases across Australia.
The tasks of the FSU include the management and distribution of supplies and equipment necessary for the conduct of operations, the provision of postal support throughout the MEAO and camp maintenance support in Tarin Kot and Kandahar.
The FSU is also responsible for the provision of MEAO induction training for all personnel entering the Middle East. This training provides acclimatisation and final preparation for personnel before they move forward to their Task Groups. The training consists of operational briefings, equipment issues, weapons handling testing, live firing and engagements, and combat first aid training.
Force Support Unit is in three locations throughout the Middle East including Tarin Kot and Kandahar.
