ADF capability snapshot 2015: Part 1—RAAF
This paper reviews the capability of the RAAF, and concludes that the service has been remarkably successful in winning government support for its acquisitions. More importantly, the money has turned into real capability. There are a couple of areas where more work is required, the most important of those being anti-submarine warfare.
The paper updates the previously published ADF capability review: Royal Australian Air Force from 2008 and the RAAF capability review 2010.
