This book examines the operational priorities and capabilities of the Australian army, navy and air force as well as exploring the nations planned strategic direction. A key focus of the book is the nations' increased defence budget and upgrading of capabilities such as new submarines, frigates and fighter aircraft, at a time when Australia must adapt to a complex strategic and diplomatic environment which is dominated by long-term major ally the United States and the emerging military might of China in the Asia-Pacific region.
