Forward staging post

The US might be setting up a new forward staging post in Australia:

The United States wants to shift military equipment and supplies to northern Australia, setting up a defence staging post near Darwin in a historic move that would deepen ties between the two countries' forces.

It is understood the proposal includes an offer for the US to house large numbers of tanks, along with other vehicles, ammunition and artillery. This offer is linked to the US push for Australia to buy its Abrams tanks.

While US officials were keen to say the "logistics and training facility" would not be permanently staffed by Americans and should not be called a military base, it could be a staging post or logistics hub in a regional conflict.

However, the move may anger Australia's neighbours, especially Indonesia.
