IT TAKES MORE THAN A WELL-TRAINED MILITARY TO PROTECT A NATION

Even in times of peace it takes a whole industry to supply the Defence Force with all of its equipment, supplies and the services it needs to keep it all going. This is referred to as the ‘defence industry’.

In Australia, with around 80 000 men and women, full-time personnel and active reservists working for the Australian Defence Force (ADF); that’s a lot of people to keep fed, clothed, functioning and ready for action.
