It would have taken some very careful mathematics to do thats for sure.
I know this may upset some people, but Australia does have an extremely good defence force. From my experience, this is partly due to the small size of it.
We are able to be very picky about who is accepted, there is more money capable of being spent training each soldier (sailer, airman), & the small size means that the front line troops (at least) are/must be multi-skilled.
We may not have the numbers, but the training etc make for a very effective & skilled group of men & women. I was proud to serve with them.
