Liam Garman, editor defence and security at Momentum Media, is joined by news editor Charbel Kadib in the studio to unpack the latest news and updates in Australian defence and defence industry.
The podcast begins by unpacking the retirement of the Classic Hornet, the recent Coras agreement with ARC and the new Office of Defence Industry Support.
The pair then discuss why Australia should invest in B-21 aircraft as part of a burden sharing agreement with the United States, and weigh up whether the Virginia or Astute Class submarines would better suit Australia’s submarine ambitions
