$1b of new hardware on New Zealand military wishlist

That is on top of the $900 million being spent on new helicopters, $400 million on modernising the P3 Orion patrol aircraft and the estimated $330 million to be spent on Ohakea air base.

The army has begun planning to replace its trucks at an estimated $500 million.

Drawing on the experience of forces now operating in Afghanistan army planners say its new trucks will need to be fitted with armoured cabs.

Despite the NZDF being very active around the globe I cant see the NZ government funding everything that the NZ military is requesting. I cant see the NZ government not getting away with buying the new trucks but upgrades to the P3 Orion and the replacement for the C-130 may be brushed to one side.

I will just have to wait and see what happens.
