Minister Pyne has been busy in Queensland and today announced a contract for sustainment of the Hornet and future Growler fleets at RAAF Base Amberley.

Elsewhere an LVC milestone is reached as virtual F-22s are linked up with actual F-16s in an Alaskan exercise and ASC upgrades to virtual shipyard software in preparation for future submarine work.

Improvements to LM2500 gas turbine housings could impact the RAN in time and Australian-designed load ammunition containers for the M777 155mm howitzer have been delivered ahead of schedule. 

Finally, it is heartening to see at long last that ten soldiers who fought so valiantly in the Battle of Long Tan will be honoured as we near the 50th anniversary of that bloody day,
