ADF capability review: Royal Australian Navy by Andrew Davies
Thursday, 24 April 2008The Rudd Government is developing a Defence White Paper that aims to align resources, capability and strategic aims. To provide a baseline for discussions of options for future force structures, ASPI will produce a series of capability snapshots that discuss current and planned capabilities, and any significant shortfalls. This paper is the first in the series and it reviews the capability of the Royal Australian Navy. Future papers will review the capabilities of the Army, Air Force and C4ISR. A 2010 update is available here.
