Great little presentation of the RNZAF A-4K programme

NZ no longer has strike aircraft, this was the last in service.

It's a long video, but has loads of quite cool anecdotes.. typical of the military in the 60s-90s.

currently has:
- A109 Light Utility Helicopter (rotary training, SAR/disaster relief, light transport)
- Beech King Air B200 (transport + multi-engine transport)
- Boeing 757-200 (trarnsport)
- C-130H (NZ) Hercules (transport)- NH90 Medium Utility Helicopter (SAR/disaster relief, light transport)
- P-3K2 Orion (Maritime surveillance and patrol)
- SH-2G(I) Seasprite Helicopters (Naval support role, although air force owned and operated)
- T-6C Texan II (primary trainer)

In my opinion, NZ doesn't need an airborne strike force, it was a good decision to drop the capability.

They have a Mosquito.



Lucky sods. :P

Their aggressor squadron could do with some modernisation though...

IT probably doesn't, but it doesn't appear to have any fighters/interceptors at all.
