Australian Air Power


Fixed-Wing | Rotary-Wing Aircraft

The Royal Australian Air Force is a modernized fighting component led by the American F-35 Lightning II strike platform backed by the American F/A-18 multirole fighter. Naturally so, much of the service is dedicated to over-water work with fixed-wing and rotary-wing elements used in direct and support roles. The Army and Navy have a decided focus on a flexible rotorcraft force that features the Tiger attack helicopter as well as a growing number of American Black Hawk types.
