Aircraft such as the F 35B or UAVs would be a great choice, even if its only a handful of them.

As for protection from the air threat out at sea, the RAN claims the future AWDs (only 3 of them) will provide that air cover and no fixed wing aircraft are needed, for deep strike roles, ADF must have fixed wing aircraft, well thats what i think anyway.

What a load of rubbish, with only 3 AWDs they expect to provide air defense??!

Theres supposed to be an option for 4. Which is also ridiculous.

They should just take the 4 instead of stuffing around.

They should have also taken a couple of the old Ticonderoga class cruisers off the Yanks.

The scum in the Australian government should understand that the Australian people want a strong and powerful defense force NOT "just enough" to deter our nearest neighbours.
