In this issue of Defence Week Premium Editor Katherine Ziesing seeks clarification on the Raytheon/Lockheed Martin roles in the AWD Aegis integration effort. We also get an insider's perspective on the recently conducted Exercise Predator's Gallop.

In other news the UK is set to follow Australia and India as foreign operators of the P-8A maritime patrol aircraft and the radar slated for the Air Warfare Destroyers has been upgraded for periscope detection

Finally Siemens PLM has backed up earlier statements by TKMS on how digital shipbuilding could be the catalyst for a manufacturing "renaissance" in Australia.  

We're not making any more predictions on Land 400 announcements, but as soon as we know you will: follow the news as it happens on our social media channels: Twitter, facebook and LinkedIn
