Topic: Australia to become Maritime Power - Rudd


Australian Prime Minister has stated that he wants Australia to become a Maritime Power capable of protecting her SLOCs and supporting troops deployed overseas.

Some VSTOL F-35s for the new Canberra class Assault ships would be a good start. What else should be looked at?

Money to fund a Blue Water Navy.

Finally, it's about time that the government looked at upgrading our seaborne defences, but whatever they buy hardware-wise, several things need to be considered...

We must be able to sustain a fleet on both sides of the country, we must be able to field sufficient personnel to adequately man all fleet units and we must make purchases based upon realistic needs........

The R.A.N has a long tradition of being able to do more with less, it's high time that our navy gets provided for...

Should look to be able to field something that is designed to keep the Chinese where they belong.

Chinese are sending three warships to Somalia and African east-coast. Will be interesting to see how they perform as it will be the farthest Chinese warships have traveled (in modern times). Another reason for Australia to have a strong Navy.

You need a doctrine that will support it. Just cause some dude says that he wants to do something, doesnt mean it will happen. Training doctrines, mindset, and the capability to do so are very important.
