What I would like to see our government do is build a properly balanced navy . the LHD's are great but not equipped to run the F-35 on a regular basis . (weapon lifts and fuel storage etc) (2)
Our DDG force is inadequate . we need at least one more . (3)
The ANZACS need to either get another ocutple mk 41 or be replaced faster . If they are replaced I would suggest homebuilding a version of the American FFG replacement or buying the designs for the Absalon's and their faster frigate version . (4)
The Army needs another 50 off tanks even if they are kept in storage and rotated into use . (5)
The ground based air defence is inadequate and needs looking at . Personally an off the shelf solution is the NASAAMS from Norway or the Israeli Spyder . add in some self propelled artillery and maybe our army may have some of what they need. (6)
The Airforce is very nicely equipped these days . The F-18 F and G are a fantastic purchase and will work well alongside the F-35 force .
A few more C-17 would be nice but you can't always get everything you want . (7)
