In this podcast, hosts Phil Tarrant and Steve Kuper discuss the massive year that was for the Royal Australian Air Force, which has seen major progress across the acquisition cycle, including on some of Australia’s largest Defence projects, with the growing fleet of fifth-generation F-35 Joint Strike Fighters and announcements around Australia’s acquisition of an armed remotely piloted aerial system.

2020 has also seen major progress and advancements across the Air Force’s fleet of E-7A Wedgetail airborne early warning command and control aircraft, KC-30A Multi-role Tanker Transport and airlift aircraft fleet. 

However, 2020 was a year dominated by a focus on air combat and strike capabilities, with public conversation focusing on the F-35 and America’s decision to cancel the F-22 Raptor in the mid-2010s, as well as concerns about Australia’s long-range strike capability gap becoming increasingly topical talking points.
