    The NZDF Defence Capability Plan 2019 has been released:

    https://defence.govt.nz/assets/Uploa...-Plan-2019.pdf

    First up is the replacement of the C-130H and the C-130J-30 has been selected. At this stage no announcement on numbers but likely to be five.

    What we would give for a single C130H, let alone replacing it with a J.
    German 1: Private Schnutz, I have bad news for you.
    German 2: Private? I am a general!
    German 1: That is the bad news.

    Rhetorical question?
    'He died who loved to live,' they'll say,
    'Unselfishly so we might have today!'
    Like hell! He fought because he had to fight;
    He died that's all. It was his unlucky night.

    In fairness, some of that in very broad strokes is covered. Not all in the public domain.

    But I agree it is very much required.

    It is there, there is a joint plan at DoD/DF Level that is developed by a joint committee (that I can’t remember the name of.... High Level Procurement something or other). They do the multi annual plan. It isn’t in the public (not sure about wider DF) domain.

    You would see elements of that appear in other internal DF plans on an annual basis.

    The obvious go into the estimates process, with things being prioritised. Now I’m sure DoD don’t let the DF ask for substantially more money in any one year (eg MRV and 2 CPVs)..... and you can be definite that neither does DPER or indeed the Government.

    The HLPP is set up to oversee the implementation of the white paper. So there may be similarities.

    Oh I know about the process, both of you know I do. My point is if I was a Kiwi with only about 300 deployed overseas and a 1.1% GDP defence spend I'd be happy to get behind that plan.

    I’ve heard HLIG in relation to the WP.

    Either way though the WP set the strategic procurement priorities for the DF

    Absolutely look at their budgets for some of those projects

    The latest edition of NZ Defence and Security sector quarterly magazine Line of Defence is now out.

    https://defsec.net.nz/2019/07/01/winter-2019/

    You can link to a pdf download from there.

    Has some manufacturer/sponsor provided content from Embraer and Leonardo with respect to the KC-390 and the C-27J as well as the MQ-9B Sea Guardian - that may be of some interest in the Irish perspective in terms of future capabilities.

    Further news the NZ Army is also to get around 200 Polaris MRZR and 43 Protected Vehicle Mediums likely to be Bushmasters as that is what the Australians use plus they have a small number already.

    Two to three Type 26 mooted for the RNZN future Anzac frigate replacement.

    https://www.ft.com/content/c1364ce4-...c-ad1c6ab5efd1

    With the RAN, RCN and RN using it does make sense with respect to long term support and sustainability. I have no doubt that whatever is downselected for the USN FFG(X) will also be in the mix.
