Default Something Different - Alpha Jets

The ADF in the near future are expecting to commence training with three Alpha Jets.

Training will include Australian Army attack controller training and anti-surface training (simulating sea-skimming missiles) for the Royal Australian Navy. They will be based at RAAF Base Williamtown.

The Alpha Jets will be supplied by Discovery Air Defence.

Hi Greg,
They've been flying around HMAS Albatross for the past few days, and at least 2 of them have ADS-B that shows up on Flightradar24.

Sounds like a return to the days of the A4s!

Exactly Mark, doing a similar role to the old A4s.

The RAAF must not of had any spare Hawks.
