I found this an interesting read.. and the use of bombers with cheap bombs to defeat chinas navy and ground assets.
is it possible for the RAAF to do the same? Ie do we need to purchase b21 or b1b to pick off the Chinese’s navy?
what platforms can raaf deliver the same effect?
It seems the low cost of life option
Without regurgitation of the pros v anti-VLR debate, P8s will be maxed out on fish-head ISR/ASW and VLR would give CoA greater kinetic reach
