Australian soldiers are neutral NPCs that appear in Tomb Raider III. They will fight alongside of the player, but if damaged by the player, all of the others will be triggered as enemies and will attack Lara on sight. These men seem to have had crashed in an aeroplane and appear only in the Tomb Raider III level called the "Crash Site".
There are total of five soldiers in the level, the last one appearing in the final turret scene, where a player is supposed to shoot down the walls. Almost all of the soldiers can be killed by raptors, if not helping them, but mostly, they always manage to pull a victory. They are useful to kill, because they drop MP5 ammunition, which might be useful in the future.
