Budget of NZ$1.7 billion, 10,000 officers and man
Royal New Zealand Armed Forces!|
Just read from the WIKIPEDIA.
That's pretty TIGHT outfit.
I doubt New Zealand needs an army, it only needs a NAVY, AIR FORCE.
The home front is probably the job of the HOME GUARDS, and Royal New Zealand Police Force.
Quite sufficient, transfer manpower from ARMY to the NAVY.
The Air Force is only 50 odd aircraft, mostly non combatants.
Budget would become sufficient, afterall, why does New Zealand need an army if it can't project it?
Enough manpower and money for 1 expeditionary task force + marines!
and a budget for asset procurement - 10 year plan - NZ$ 8 billion - quite enough for 1 stealh type 45 destroyer, 3 stealth frigates La Fayette class, 2 small docks - new Flat top - extended length Endurance Class (12,000tonnes) plus 80+ attack UAV + tilt rotor ASW + Stol Awacs + Stol Tanker.
Marines units - 200 APC 4th generation, 100 2.5 tonne trucks, 50 self propel howitzers on tracks, CIWS, SAM - rapiers on tracks - 30 units, medic, cooks detachments. (Ready for Home Guard detachment - to double the size of the force to1 division - 10,000 man!)
