The main similarity of Australia and New Zealand is that their main defense is remoteness. Potential aggressors are simply too lazy to climb into such a wilderness.

Australia traditionally demonstrates maximum US loyalty, participating in all American wars, unlike most NATO countries. Its geographical position allows it to have a relatively small army, which at the same time has good technical equipment and a high level of combat training. Although American F-18 aircraft were delivered to Australia in the ground version, they can be used with American aircraft carriers. This was demonstrated during the second Iraq war. The country has a balanced ocean fleetwhose only weakness is the lack of aircraft carriers. Partial substitute for them should be UDC type "Canberra" of Spanish construction. It is planned to acquire new submarines and frigates equipped with SLCMs. The almost complete identity of the technology makes it possible to integrate Australian forces into Pentagon operations more easily than in the case with any other country, even Great Britain.

Battlefield with claims

Ground forces have a rather complex organizational structure. The 1 Division is not part of the combat units. This is a staff superstructure in case of war. At one o'clock, brigades will be transferred from the combat command to the division.

Combat Command includes all combat and reserve units. The combat units are the 1st mechanized brigade (headquarters - Darwin), the 3rd light infantry brigade (Townsville), the 6th reconnaissance and command brigade (Sydney), the 7th motorized infantry brigade (Brisbane), the 16th army brigade aviation (Brisbane), 17th combat support brigade (Sydney). The combat command also includes the 2nd Division (headquarters - Sydney) with reserve brigades: 4th (Victoria), 5th and 8th (New South Wales), 9th (southern Australia and Tasmania), 11 I (Queensland), 13th (Western Australia). The command of special operations includes two regiments of special forces, two battalions of commandos.

Tank the park consists of 59 M1A1 Abrams transferred from the US Army. There are up to 186 ASLAV BRMs and up to 90 auxiliary vehicles on this base, 767 M113 armored personnel carriers, 1021 Bushmaster armored vehicles of our own production.

Artillery - 190 towed guns (54 М777, 35 М198, 101 L118) and 185 of F2 mortars. All ground defense consists of 19 Swedish RBS-70 MANPADS. Army Aviation - 22 of the newest German-French combat Tigers and 120 transport helicopters (11 CH-47, 32 NH90TTH, 35 S-70A, 42 Bell-206B-1).

In the Australian Air Force, combat aircraft of the same type are American deck F / A-18 “Hornet” in the number of 95 machines (55 A, 16 B, 24 newest F). Plus 2 aircraft EW EA-18G based on the F / A-18. Expected to be purchased in the US before the 100 F-35A fighter. Two have already been manufactured and are being tested in the United States. Anti-submarine aviation includes the X-NUMX of the AR-14C and the 3 P-1A. There are X-NUMX aircraft DRLO E-8A ("Boeing-7"), 7 tankers KS-737 based on A-6. Transporters: 30 330 2 X-NUMX X-NUMX 737 8 X-NUMX 17 3 604 12 130 16 350 1 200 1 1900 8 27 34 127 63 9 8 21 5 Training aircraft: 76 English Hawk MkXNUMX, XNUMX Swiss PC-XNUMX and XNUMX PC-XNUMX. There are X-NUMX rescue helicopters S-XNUMX.

Navy countries include the Collins type 6, the Hobart destroyer 1 (more 2 are being built), the 11 frigates (Anzac 8, Adelaide 3 - similar to the American Oliver Perry), the Armideyl 13 patrol boats Armideylell. minesweepers “Huon”, 6 UDC “Canberra”, 2 DTD “Chowles” (English “Bay”). Naval Aviation - 1 anti-submarine (54 NH-15NFH, 90 S-15В, 70 MH-24R) and 60 multi-purpose helicopters (25 AS6BA, 350 Bell-4, 429 ES15

The Australian Armed Forces capacity is more than enough for defense and for participation in American military campaigns. In the future, the country can become a battleground between the United States and China. China is extremely interested in the development of Australia, which in some respects very much resembles Russia: a huge, almost empty territory and a mass of mineral resources. China's economic and demographic expansion in Australia is extremely intense, which the United States strongly discourages. Whether it comes to military confrontation is impossible to predict.

Recently, Australia decided to declare itself on the international arms market, promising to take a place in the top ten leading exporters (“The country of the kangaroo wanted to play muscles”).

Ship for the whole army

Due to New Zealand’s geographic location, invasion has never been threatened. Even in the first half of 1942, at the time of the maximum advance of the Japanese to the south, they had no real possibility of aggression. The population is very small, respectively, and the sun is compact, which are mainly expeditionary in nature. Being, like Australia, part of the western and Anglo-Saxon world, the country participates in some NATO and US operations, although it is clear that its contribution is modest.

The ground forces include the 1 Brigade, the 1 Special Forces Regiment, training units. In service with 102 BTR NZLAV-25, 24 guns L-118, 50 mortars, 24 Javelin ATGM, 12 Mistral MANPADS. The air force has 6 anti-submarine P-3K, 7 transport (2 "Boeing-757-200", 5 C-130H) and 15 training airplanes (4 "Beach-200 King Air, 11 T-6XXXXXXXX). helicopters (X-NUMX anti-submarine SH-23G, 8 multipurpose AW2, 5 Bell 109, 1 NH-47). Navy countries have 9 frigates of the Anzac type, 90 patrol ships with purely symbolic weapons (2 Otago, 6 Rotoiti) and 2 Canterbury UDK. The latter personifies the expeditionary nature of the Armed Forces of New Zealand, since it can take on a significant part of their personnel and equipment.

The New Zealand Armed Forces fully meet their symbolic and expeditionary destination. Of course, they are incapable of protecting the country from external aggression, but its probability is zero in the foreseeable future.

He specifically looked now: 13th world economy, 6th place in terms of GDP per capita, 12th military budget. I believe that it’s not bad for convicts)))

      Austria and Canada have never influenced anything, the maximum is the shabby backing vocals of the United States. Politically, they seem to be gone. The only thing is that due to its Russophobia, Canada on Khokhlostan is trying to prove something.

          Well, given the description of the Australian Air Force, spoiling them is not easy. I did not expect them to be such tough guys. Aviation at the level of Germany or France, in practice.

    They were called the Anzacs (Australian and New Zealand Army Corps). In WWI and WWII, they fought along with their metropolis. The most famous was in Goliopoli. It seems that in WWII losses were less than in the First.
    At VO there were several articles devoted to them. One of them is https://topwar.ru/?newsid=53753

        Anzan is not a nationality ... fool
        ANZAC - an acronym for the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps - the names of the military units of the two titular countries of the First World War. The corps soldiers were called the Anzacs. A number of events are associated with the name of the corps; many objects are named in his honor.

      That in the First, that in the Second, that in the Korean War, Anzacs were shoved to the hottest sections as "consumables" in order to minimize the loss of soldiers from the mother country

        In quantitative terms, their losses seem to be small, but the percentage of the population is large.

          Perhaps the average level of training is higher, perhaps the officers are more adequate. But an unambiguous historical fact can be traced. If there is a "meat grinder", then all sorts of Anzaki Poles are surely participating in it from the British. Like near Monte Cassino

          Here is who “unlike Zhukov’s never been a butcher” Monti-Montgomery drove into minefields in “Devil's Gardens”? Right, 2nd New Zealand

    This is an excellent reserve of NATO, as well as a reserve of democracy (albeit colonial).

        Of the 10 most deadly wars in the history of mankind, 5 began precisely in China. Moreover, this five does not include World War II, when China survived the invasion of Japan, known for its extreme cruelty. Then killed about 20 million people.
        In such an ancient country as China, and with such a large mob of reserves and industry opportunities, to say that there are no worthy warriors is stupid.

    A good country, ordinary people who are kind to Russians. Whoever visited me or lived says one thing that the population is very similar to ours, they also welcome guests well. The government naturally oppresses its own, there can be no questions. Their army and procurement are at the level, albeit not so many. But a lot of people know how to handle weapons, survive in their conditions, and in principle, the Lyuli are bold. Just look at the national sports, and then how they play them. I myself like to compete in rugby and rugby league, but since they play, it’s immediately clear that men entered the field. Yes, and they teach children to do this when there is a team on the field, and your lack of preparedness puts them in jeopardy. The team shares everything with you, both victory and misfortune. That you have your goal and role, and you must do it well. Yes banal respect for your opponent, your own team will punish you for disrespect. And this is all in their blood, Australians and New Zealanders, I respect much more than our Europeans.
