Podcast: Assessing Australia’s long-range strike capabilities

written by Robyn Tongol | November 29, 2022

In this special episode, the editors of Defence Connect and Australian Aviation, Liam Garman and Adam Thorn, talk through the biggest industry topics.

First, they discuss the need for long-range strike capability, with tensions in the region rising and Australia short of options.

Next, they ask how this should happen. Should the country invest in the ‘sequel’ to the B-2, the B-21, or plump for conventional long-range missiles?

Finally, they discuss the importance of US B-52s being semi-regularly based at RAAF Base Tindal and whether they could carry nuclear weapons.
