The Achievements of Royal Australian Air Force

 By: Jamie S Hanson
The commonwealth military forces of the Australian army were formed in 1901. For almost fifty years they remained as citizen backed part time strength with a small group of regulars. As a matter of fact after the World War II the regular army came into existence in the later part of 1947 and the same structure prevailed till 1980 when it was renamed as the Australian Army.

The other impressive wing of the Australian military is definitely the Royal Australian Air Force. They are entrusted with the security of the country for their space power. Nevertheless, this is the second most seasoned air force after the British. Canberra being the head quarters for the Australian Air Force, they worked in connivance with the other military wings of the defense organization. The country is modernizing its safety forces as portion of the international force, for joining emergency situations and also attends to disasters.

At present the Hornets of Royal Australian Air Force are nearing their life span and are ageing and to compensate the situation the Air Force is buying some Super Hornets to fill the gap. The decision was based on accessibility to finance and the serious price of F-35, its intricacies and technology. Wedgetail, Super Hornet and Vigilare gave the muse to qualified air force wing. However, there are few draw backs in these aircraft additions. These aircrafts are capable to implement jamming and anti electronic infiltration and perform standoff missions. But this claim has to be verified. It is also said to have bought some P-8 Poseidon which are jet powered and intended for Ocean surveillance.

For precision targets during attacks they have two squadrons of Super Hornets. The Royal Australian Air force has a idea of inducting seventy five aircraft similar to F-35 stealth aircraft by 2025. These aircrafts have the ability to dodge the radars of enemies and can fly a long distance and protect themselves from surface to air missile attack. Additionally it is organized to acquire unmanned air craft with bombing and surveillance capability. The unmanned aircrafts which has been inducted to Australian Air Force will protect and prevent and attack enemy territory. Moreover, it can be put in with active electronically scanned array radars which has low maintenance cost and can be used as jamming tools.

To prevent illegal fishing on the Australian territory, drug smuggling or for peace keeping they are the finest air force in the world.
