This 2020 edition of the Air Force Capability Guidebook showcases the diverse capability, composition and character of the Royal Australian Air Force. Moreover, it demonstrates the vital role the RAAF plays, not only in Australia’s security, but also our relationships with regional neighbours and global partners in an increasingly challenging and dynamic strategic environment.

As a component of the Joint Force, the RAAF is regularly called upon to partner with other government agencies, allies, and coalition partners, and the information contained in this guidebook is intended to inform and assist understanding of the myriad ways in which the RAAF is postured to provide responsive, agile and potent Air and Space effects across the operational spectrum, from cooperation to high end conflict.

As this guidebook demonstrates, today’s Air Force is much more than a collection of aircraft but rather an integrated and networked force capable of operating seamlessly across operational domains.
