Today the Royal Australian Air Force celebrates its 100-year anniversary. From humble beginnings to the fifth-generation force of today, the RAAF has gone through revolutions and evolutions in its people and technology.
On the centenary, the Royal Australian Air Force is embracing a period of unprecedented change. We are close to completing the most significant update to our platforms since WWII. In doing so, we are transitioning from a bespoke force of standalone capabilities to a networked force capable of delivering air and space power effects for the integrated force. At the same time, the global rules- based order is under pressure, and we find ourselves in an increasingly competitive and less predictable geopolitical environment.
