As the ASPI Defence White Paper conference gets underway in Canberra today ADM provides a deeper analysis of the basis of the Japanese bid for the Sea 1000 Future Submarine Program – the Soryu class submarine.
Editor Katherine Ziesing considers what's at stake given the recently announced extension to the Land 400 Phase 2 RFT and we talk to IAI about the integration of an indigenous C4 system into the Israeli F-35I 'Adir'.
In addition, 285SQN will receive a new C-130J Fuselage Trainer for loadmasters in 2018 and L-3 is to open a design, engineering and support facility in Melbourne for the RAN's submarine and surface fleet.
