Tendo em conta que há vários anos que se projecta para um futuro próximo um conflicto entre a China e os EUA na região, parece-me bastante razoável esse "investimento". :)

Quem nos dera um dia termos uns 20 LRASM para caças ou aviões de patrulha.  ::)
O rearmamento australiano tem sido notável, e são países como estes que mantém a China em sentido, sabendo que qualquer tentativa de uso da força implicará grandes baixas a nível pessoal e material. Se ao menos nós por cá tivéssemos o mesmo conceito de "dissuasão"...

Aqui os meus anfitriões já preparam a substituição de sistemas de armas relativamente recentes. Entretanto, o tio tretas e os seus acólitos insistem em atirar areia para os olhos da populaça, com aquisições de sistemas civis e continuação em serviço de sistemas até atingirem 50 anos de serviço.

Canberra recasts airpower plans for great power competition

Citar
Australia will invest A$65 billion ($63 billion) in airpower over the coming decade, as it shifts its defence focus to deal with a more dangerous Asia-Pacific region.

In a major update to the country’s 2016 Defence White Paper, Canberra will invest approximately A$270 billion in defence over the next 10 years, with an eye to deterring foes at longer ranges and securing supply chains.

“Our region is in the midst of the most consequential strategic realignment since the Second World War, and trends including military modernisation, technological disruption and the risk of state-on-state conflict are further complicating our nation’s strategic circumstances,” says prime minister Scott Morrison.

“The Indo-Pacific is at the centre of greater strategic competition, making the region more contested and apprehensive. These trends are continuing and will potentially sharpen as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.”

The update covers all areas of military power: air, land, sea, space, and cyber. The air domain will cover 24% of all spending, second behind the maritime domain with 28%.

“Australia requires a technologically advanced strike and air combat capability which must be capable of defeating threats as far from Australia or its deployed forces as possible,” says the update.

“As well as possessing potent weapons, our air combat capabilities must be fully integrated with supporting intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance and logistics systems.”

The update stresses continued acquisition of the Royal Australian Air Force’s (RAAF’s) planned 72 Lockheed Martin F-35As, adding that a replacement will be sought in the late 2030s. A replacement for the Boeing EA-18G Growler electronic warfare aircraft is also foreseen from the late 2020s.

An “Additional Air Combat Capability” with funding of A$4.5-6.7 billion is listed from the mid-to-late 2020s. It is not clear precisely what this refers to, but local trade publication ADBR suggests it could mean upgrading Royal Australian Air Force Boeing F/A-18F Super Hornets to a Block III configuration, acquiring additional F-35As, or adding unmanned combat air systems - or some combination of these options.

“Teaming Air Vehicles” are listed as a separate requirement, with funding planned from the late 2020s out to 2040.

In addition, the Boeing E-7A Wedgetail airborne early warning and control system aircraft will receive capability updates, pending its replacement in the late 2020s.

“Plans for the E-7A replacement will now involve increasing the fleet to provide greater coverage of the highly-complex future air and joint-battlefield environment that will include a proliferation of autonomous systems and long-range and high-speed weapons.”

The air force’s Lockheed C-130J tactical transports will be replaced from the late 2020s, while the Airbus Defence & Space A330 multi-role tanker transport (MRTT) will be replaced from the early 2030s. In the shorter term, plans for two additional MRTTs (designated the KC-30A in Australian service) will be scrapped, with money saved going to improve the availability of the RAAF’s existing inventory.

“New investment will include larger replacement fleets for the C-130J Hercules transport and the KC-30A air-to-air refuelling aircraft,” says a factsheet issued with the update. The KC-30A replacement could include both manned and unmanned systems, to better allow the RAAF to sustain long-range operations.

In addition to research on high-speed, long-range strike systems, including hypersonic weapons, the update calls for the “procurement and integration of advanced longer-range strike weapon systems onto combat aircraft to allow the air force to operate at greater range and avoid increasingly sophisticated air defences.”

Loitering munitions will be sought to give the RAAF more options for “persistent presence and strike in an increasingly complex environment”. Updated self-protection systems will be installed on a “range of aircraft” to improve survivability against advanced threats.

Canberra will also beef up the capabilities of air bases in the country’s north to improve their survivability in the event of a chemical, biological, radiological or nuclear attack.

Army and naval airpower will also see significant updates.

In addition to the ongoing effort to replace the army’s Airbus Helicopters Tiger fleet, a new “long-range rotorcraft” is planned from the late 2020s.

As for the navy, the Sikorsky MH-60R is seen as serving beyond 2035. The update also lists a new “logistics helicopter” that will be obtained from the mid-2020s.

“Improved weapon systems, with longer range and greater survivability, will give Defence the capability to deter or defeat attacks as far from Australia as possible,” states the update.

“New and existing aircraft will combine with remotely piloted and autonomous systems to provide increased lethality and survivability. An expansion of the air mobility fleet will improve Defence’s ability to support and project our forces across Australia, the Indo-Pacific and further afield, when required.”

Australia’s air force should already be planning to replace the F-35

19 Aug 2020|Malcolm DavisStrategic update 2020



Australia’s 2020 defence strategic update and accompanying force structure plan outline the next 20 years of development for the Royal Australian Air Force’s strike and air combat capability. Some notional funding streams are provided in the force structure plan that define the priorities for capability development and raise some intriguing questions for future planners to consider.

At the centre of the plans for the RAAF, of course, are the F-35A fighter jets, which are due to achieve final operational capability by the end of 2023. The force structure plan also allocates funds for ‘additional air combat capability’ between 2025 and 2030. It doesn’t specify what that additional capability will be, though it says that the government ‘is committed to … support of the F/A-18F Super Hornet strike aircraft, and acquiring enhanced air launched munitions’.

The Super Hornet remains an important capability, given that it will be the initial primary launch platform for the AGM-158C long-range anti-ship missile, or LRASM.

The F/A-18F fleet could be upgraded to ‘Block III’ standard, allowing the jets to remain in service into the mid-2030s. That makes sense from a risk-management perspective, because the government wouldn’t be betting everything on the long-term effectiveness of the F-35’s stealth. China’s continued development of quantum sensors and use of artificial intelligence could erode that advantage in coming years.

Defence’s 2016 integrated investment program contemplated acquiring a fourth squadron of F-35s, stating that:

the Super Hornet fleet has been extended beyond its initial bridging capability timeline and is now planned to be replaced around 2030. Its replacement could include either a fourth operational squadron of Joint Strike Fighters or possibly a yet to be developed unmanned combat aerial vehicle. The decision on the replacement of this air combat capability will be best undertaken post-2020 when technology and emerging threat trends are better understood.

The 2020 plan doesn’t mention a fourth F-35 squadron, but elevates support for what it calls ‘teaming air vehicles’. It anticipates their acquisition between 2025 and 2040, which would fit in with decisions being made on the future of the F/A-18F versus an additional squadron of F-35s.

Boeing’s loyal wingman drone for its ‘airpower teaming system’, being developed in Australia, could emerge as a good solution to the RAAF’s long-range-strike requirements by the end of this decade. It could be evolved into a more capable platform, with greater range, payload and speed, from its current prototype design. It wouldn’t be the equivalent of acquiring the B-21 Raider stealth bomber, but an evolved loyal wingman would represent something closer to a true long-range-strike platform than simply purchasing another squadron of F-35s, without all the political, financial and strategic challenges associated with the B-21.

Alongside achieving final operational capability for the F-35 and teaming vehicles, the force structure plan seems to focus on long-range missiles as the centrepiece of a ‘strike’ option for the RAAF. But thinking needs to go further than simply bolting long-range munitions onto F-35s and F/A-18Fs, and a future strike capability will need to extend beyond the RAAF.

For example, any new capabilities will need to rely heavily on the Defence Intelligence Group, established on 1 July to ensure that platforms have access to the latest intelligence to maximise their combat effectiveness. That could bring in a host of non-airpower capabilities, ranging from unmanned surface vessels equipped for maritime surveillance such as the Ocius Bluebottle, through to surveillance satellites in low-earth orbit that are to be acquired through Defence Project 799, Phase 2.

The 2020 plan also suggests that the RAAF must consider a replacement for the E/A-18G Growler electronic attack aircraft between the late 2020s and 2040. Keeping the Growlers operating alongside the Super Hornets makes good sense. But if the Super Hornets are retired by the mid-2030s, that would be an ideal time to explore new approaches to electronic warfare and attack. Once again, the sensible solution would be to take full advantage of unmanned systems wherever possible. One option might be for Australia to team up with the United States to develop a stealthy and highly survivable variant of the loyal wingman, with the US supplying the complex and classified electronic warfare payload on board.

Looking further into the future, the plan mentions the period between 2035 and 2040 as the beginning of a process for considering a replacement for the F-35. In fact, something would be amiss if the RAAF weren’t discussing the F-35 replacement right now and thinking about how Australia could work with the US, the UK and other allies on fielding new types of air combat platforms much sooner. For example, the US is no longer speaking about ‘sixth-generation’ fighters, and recognises the risks of slow, decades-long acquisition cycles for a future fighter. The focus of its next-generation air dominance program is now on a ‘digital century series’ approach of rapid development of small numbers of several types of airframes over short periods, as few as five years.

It would be a mistake for the RAAF to embark on another 20-year acquisition project to eventually replace the F-35 from the late 2040s, yet that’s exactly what the force structure plan implies. Waiting until 2035 to begin developing a replacement ignores the clear trends that suggest a desire for faster capability acquisition.

The F-35 has taken two decades to develop, at great expense, and the approach of a common airframe for multiple tasks means it can’t be optimised for a single role. Going back to platforms optimised for a specific role—air dominance, long-range strike and electronic attack, or intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance—that can be acquired faster might be a better path.

The RAAF shouldn’t wait until 2035 to get started on developing these types of capabilities. Its plans to complement, and then replace, the F-35 can be accelerated, and it would make sense to promote collaboration with the US and the UK in this endeavour to boost the RAAF’s air combat capability sooner.
