Editor of Defence Connect, Liam Garman, and news editor, Charbel Kadib, unpack the latest developments across defence and geopolitics.

The pair begin by addressing mounting tensions across Russia’s border with Ukraine, exploring how the United States and its allies could respond in the event of a military clash.

Garman and Kadib then weigh in on the debate surrounding the Commonwealth government’s defence procurement strategy in response to significant investment in armoured vehicle capability.

Finally, the pair assess whether the Australian Defence Force should rethink its approach to the training and resourcing of its Reserves, drawing from foreign case studies.
