How do we balance our force structure and capabilities to ensure that we can penetrate and persist in a highly contested, peer environment, whilst maintaining our advantage in humanitarian/peace operations or permissive, counter-terror or insurgency missions?
Implications for aircraft acquisitions:
• A light ISR aircraft need for permissive environments?
• A move away from exquisite or ‘big wing’ aircraft?
• The relevance of AEW&C aircraft?
• Adoption of unmanned, or manned-unmanned networks of aircraft?
