    Down Under get many new toys :) ramp up mainly for Navy coz geography... Air Force after but Army as in much countries now, USA by ex, is less privilegied and Australian Army is modern with very good soldiers but enough small only 3 active brigades with a size a bit low, coz mainly batallions are enough small, undoubtely with changes in this area they need a more robust Army with a 4th or 3 more big Brigades and also more heavy weapons, tanks, SPG, etc...

    Never see in details... except maybe some antennas seems exactly same design with the Spanish, an Australian De Bazan o_O

    Seems possible later RAAN buy SM-6 but need to be upgraded for an eventual BMD capacity ?
    IIRC only European Aegis like Class actually BMD capable for sensors/electronic are the De Zeven Provincien, NL but ofc don't have SM-3.

    I believe the Japanese and the Korean AEGIS vessels are going to get BMD. Atago for Japan.

    After a long and painful process it's a relief to see some light at the end of the tunnel.

    A few more pics from Exercise Kakadu.

    HMAS Newcastle conducts a replenishment at sea with HMAS Success off the coast of Darwin during the Exercise Kakadu 2016.

    Royal Australian Navy Armidale Class Patrol Boats sit with Pacific Class Patrol Boats, HMPNGS Moresby and Seeadler, alongside at HMAS Coonawarra at the start of Exercise Kakadu 2016.

    And another one of HMAS Adelaide just because I like her.
