|with it commonly accepted that NZDF do not have the resources to contribute substantially to a ANZAC deployment, what would they need equipment wise - lets assume the personnel were also available...
the scenario that the force is to be deployed is Fiji in 2015, to overthrow a military regime. Key factors to consider include, a high number of tourists that would need to be looked after/evacuated, control of the airport, control of the port facilites and costal waters, control over Nadi and Suva.
What would you have NZDF shopping for to meet their side of the commitment?
additional ANZAC frigates, or a compliment of 4 "Enhanced ANZAC" frigates? A multirole vessel such as the San Antonio class to land ground troops, act as a off shore helicopter platform with medical facilites, and transport up a contingent of LAVIIIs? F16 aircraft to compliment the RAAF hornet package? A replacement for the ageing C130s, maybe a mix of C27 and C5 aircraft? Armed NH90 Copters to compliment the troop carrying NH90s?
