First JSF acquisition announced
The Australian Government has approved a $3.2 billion acquisition program for the Air Force’s first 14 Joint Strike Fighters (JSF).
“Defence has done more analysis on this platform than any other platform in the acquisition history of the ADF,” Senator Faulkner said.
