New Rifles for NZ Defence Force


10 Desember 2015

Defence Minister Gerry Brownlee today announced that Cabinet has approved the purchase of new rifles to re-equip the Defence Force, 28 years after the Steyr 5.56mm rifle was introduced.

The new rifle is manufactured by Lewis Machine and Tools (LMT) in the United States.

“The LMT is a combat-proven rifle that has seen service in the most arduous conditions,” Mr Brownlee says.

“It gives our personnel a weapon they can rely on in any situation,” Mr Brownlee says.

The new rifle is the heart of a weapons system that includes (for those soldiers that require it) advanced optical day and night sights, a detachable grenade launcher and other ancillaries such as combat torches, laser sights, and sound suppressors.  The overall system is called the Modular Assault Rifle System – Light (MARS-L).

“Our personnel operate by day and night in conditions ranging from the jungle, to deserts, to built-up areas.  The new rifle has an open architecture that allows it to mount different sights and other equipment depending on the operational situation.

“It can be adjusted to fit the user and incorporates the latest technology in a light, simple and robust package,” Mr Brownlee says.

The LMT was selected from eight contenders after a thorough evaluation that included technical examinations and extensive live firing.  Personnel from all three services were involved.

“This weapon has excellent performance and was preferred by personnel,” Mr Brownlee says.

“Perhaps the strongest endorsement is that our own Special Forces will also use the LMT.  Previously, they have used different rifles to the Army.  They observed the trials carefully, and liked what they saw.

“We want all our personnel to have tools they need and the MARS-L system is just such a weapon.”

NZDF opens new battle training facility in Ardmore


The New Zealand Defence Force (NZDF) has opened a new battle training facility (BTF) in Ardmore, Auckland, New Zealand.

The purpose-built facility will replace the outdated training facilities for Special Air Service (SAS) personnel in Papakura.

Valued at $46m, the project involved the construction of a facility to accommodate all-weather and scenario training, live firing, and helicopter use.

The BTF will also include training spaces with structures, such as aircraft fuselages, ship's bridges, and public transport.

It will support full-mission rehearsals and provide SAS personnel with an area for firing primary operational weapons.

New Zealand Replaces Old Seasprite Helicopters
Nick Lee-Frampton, Defense News 6:43 a.m. EDT April 14, 2016


The New Zealand Defence Force’s (NZDF) five Kaman SH-2G(NZ) Seasprite naval helicopters became officially retired Thursday. They will be replaced by eight newer model, SH-2G(I) helicopters.

April 21 will see the last flight of the NZ model when the remaining aircraft return from assisting the disaster relief recovery operation in Fiji. The SH-2G(NZ) aircraft have served with the Royal New Zealand Air Force (RNZAF) since August 2001.

“Upgrading the naval helicopter fleet from five to eight plus a simulator gives the New Zealand Defence Force a significant increase in capability, allowing the Navy to embark up to three helicopters from ships concurrently as opposed to the current two that are available,” Chief of the Air Force, Air Vice-Marshal Tony Davies, said.

NH90 : Retex positif en Nouvelle Zélande
Dans Actualité Défense, Actualité Hélicoptères militaires
Publié le 15/04/2016 à 13h58, par Emmanuel Huberdeau



Pour la première fois, les NH90 néo zélandais ont été déployés en dehors du territoire national. Les hélicoptères de nouvelle génération de la force aérienne néo zélandaise sont intervenus aux Fidji pour participer aux missions humanitaires lancées en mars en réponse au cyclone tropical Winston.

Les appareils néo zélandais sont arrivés le 3 mars aux Fidji à bord du bâtiment amphibie "HMNZS Canterbury". Un scénario qui avait été travaillé pour la première fois en 2015 lors de l'exercice "Talisman Sabre" en Australie.

Au total, les NH90 "kiwis" ont effectué près de 120 heures de vol afin d'effectuer principalement des missions de transport de personnel et de fret. Les appareils ont du parcourir de vastes distances à travers l'archipel des Fidji. L'armée de l'air néo zélandaise cite des distances de 180 à 290 km à la limite du rayon d'action du NH90. L'appareil a du évoluer également dans des conditions météo tropicales difficiles et se poser sur des terrains de fortune.

Au final, selon la force aérienne néo zélandaise, le NH90 a démontré ses qualités dans ce contexte difficile. Les pilotes expliquent que l'appareil est un multiplicateur de capacités pour les opérations humanitaires. Le NH90 a permis de maintenir un lien vital entre des zones éloignées et coupée et les centres de secours.

Formation sur T-6 pour la Royal New Zealand Air Force !





Le Royal New Zealand Air Force a débuter la formation initiale des ses futurs pilotes pilotes militaires avec sa nouvelle monture, le Beechraft T-6C « Texan II ». Les 11 T-6C remplacent désormais les 13 Pacific Aerospace CT-4E Airtrainer.

En plus des T-6C, la RNZAF dispose au sol de systèmes de formation deux simulateurs de vol. Les premières livraisons du nouvel avion école ont débuté en août 2014. Les appareils sont regroupés sur la base aérienne Ohakea.

Le T-6 « Texan II » :

Le Beechcraft T-6C « Texan II» est la version la plus moderne disponible de la gamme T6, le cockpit comprend un Head-Up Display (HUD) couplé avec panneau de configuration Up-Front (UFCP), et Hands-On Throttle and Stick, soit le système mains sur manettes et manche. Le T-6B dispose d’une avionique avec écrans EFIS et système d’enregistrement des données de vol numérique. Le T-6 est un avion d'entraînement primaire qui permet un enseignement de base aux procédures de vol et aux instruments et permet d’effectuer les figures d’introduction à la voltige.

Le Beechcraft T-6 «Texan II» est un aéronef à turbopropulseur monomoteur construit par la Raytheon Aircraft Company (maintenant Hawker-Beechcraft). Basé sur une cellule de Pilatus PC-9.

Le T-6 est un développement du Pilatus PC-9, modifiés de manière significative par Beechcraft en vue d'entrer dans le système commun de formation primaire d'aéronef (JPATS) prévu pour les Forces aériennes américaines. Des modifications mineures ont été introduites sur la cellule d’un PC-9, mais des conflits entrer l’USAF et la Navy ont entraîné des retards et des augmentations de coûts (par rapport aux estimations initiales de 3,9 millions à près de 6 millions dollars par avion). De plus, le T-6 se retrouve avec un surpoids de 22% vis-à-vis du PC-9 initial.

Le modèle T-6C est le même que le modèle que le «B» mais permet l’usage d’armes de bord, telles que : canons, roquettes et bombes.

New Zealand Defense Budget Breakdown


06 Juni 2016

Army Leads in Funding Over Navy, Air Force

WELLINGTON, New Zealand — New Zealand’s budget for 2016/17, announced May 26, includes just over $2.20 billion for the New Zealand Defence Force (NZDF).

The total includes $501 million for the "purchase of assets" and $1.36 billion on the three armed services.

As usual, the New Zealand Army leads with $543 million, followed by the Royal New Zealand Air Force with $517 million and the Royal New Zealand Navy with $308 million.

Both the Army and the Air Force receive more than before, the Navy slightly less.

However, in terms of dollars per person, the Navy, with 2,138 sailors does significantly better than either the 4,622 strong Army or the Air Force with its 2,423 uniformed personnel.

Budget documents show that the Air Force's dollars are directed at surveillance, both over land and sea; strategic and tactical airlift and tactical mobility; and the operation of Kaman SH-2G(I) helicopters from ships.

The Navy’s budget is directed at amphibious sealift, strategic replenishment and a deployable maritime capability "prepared to conduct operations that safeguards access to and the use of harbours, inshore waters and littoral zones in New Zealand and wherever NZDF forces are required to operate."

The New Zealand Security Intelligence Service’s budget increases by more than 25 percent from $34.2 million to $43 million.

The Defence White Paper (DWP) due 2015 has still not been published. Secretary of Defence Helene Quilter told Defense News on May 16 that the 2016 DWP "is expected to be finalized and published in the coming weeks."

When the 2010 DWP appeared, it was on the basis that such documents would appear every five years.

New Zealand confirms plans to acquire third OPV with ice-strengthened features

Ridzwan Rahmat, Singapore - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly

08 June 2016

Key Points
•New Zealand is planning to acquire a third ice-capable offshore patrol vessel
•Platform will bolster maritime security in waters around New Zealand, South Pacific states

The New Zealand Ministry of Defence confirmed in a white paper released on 8 June that the country is planning to acquire a third offshore patrol vessel (OPV) to bolster its navy's maritime surveillance and fisheries inspections support capabilities.

The Royal New Zealand Navy (RNZN) currently relies on a fleet of two 85 m Otago-class OPVs, HMNZS Otago (P 148) and HMNZS Wellington (P 55), for these operations. The vessels were commissioned in February and May 2010 respectively.

An indication that the service was considering a third OPV was first revealed during a May 2014 talk in Singapore delivered by a senior official from the New Zealand Defence Force (NZDF), as reported by IHS Jane's .

"We learned that offshore patrol vessels cost a lot less to run [than frigates]," said Lieutenant Commander Owen Gee, who is from the NZDF capabilities branch, at the MilSatCom Asia Pacific 2014 conference. "If acquired, we plan to utilise it in a constabulary role and this releases our frigates for other operations," he added.

Besides stating that the planned third OPV will feature ice-strengthened features, no further details were given in the 2016 white paper on the platform that the government is looking into. According to IHS Jane's Fighting Ships , the RNZN's existing OPVs can reach a top speed of 22 kt and feature a standard range of 6,000 n miles at 15 kt. The 1,600-tonne ships can accommodate a core crew of 35 and a SH-2G Super Seasprite helicopter on its flight deck.

Otago and Wellington are deployed by the RNZN in long-range patrol missions around New Zealand, Pacific, and Southern Oceans.

Aussies et Kiwis défileront le 14 juillet

Actualités  Nathan Gain  29 juin, 2016  



C’est désormais confirmé : pour la première fois depuis 1880, des soldats australiens et néo-zélandais descendront les Champs-Elysées lors du traditionnel défilé militaire du 14 juillet. Une présence symbolique, alors que la France s’apprête à fêter le centenaire des batailles de la Somme (1er juillet), de Fromelles (19 juillet) et de Pozières (23 juillet). Autant de batailles durant lesquelles l’ANZAC (Australian and New-Zealand Army Corps) a joué un rôle majeur.

Si peu d’informations ont filtré jusqu’à présent concernant la présence de l’Australie, confirmée hier par l’ambassade de France à Canberra, les journaux néo-zélandais ont quant à eux dévoilé les détails du contingent appelé à défiler sur « la plus belle avenue du monde ».

Selon un article publié le 28 juin par le New-Zealand Herald, l’ensemble des couleurs des régiments ayant combattu sur le sol français seront hissées par 86 hommes et femmes pour la première fois en dehors du sol néo-zélandais. Hormis les trois composantes traditionnelles, la délégation néo-zélandaise amènera dans ses valises les couleurs d’unités certes plus « discrètes » mais tout aussi valeureuses, à l’image du corps dentaire royal néo-zélandais, ou encore de l’aumônerie.

L’ensemble du contingent sera précédé d’une section de guerriers Maoris issus des trois branches de l’armée. Il sera lui-même dirigé par le lieutenant-colonel Eugène Whakahoehoe, qui pour l’occasion portera le célèbre « kau huruhuru Nga Tapuwae », un manteau de plumes maori décerné par l’armée néo-zélandaise en reconnaissance d’une conduite exemplaire.

NZDF to Test Out New Missile


01 Juli 2016

The New Zealand Defence Force has arrived at Pearl Harbour to take part in an international maritime exercise where it'll test out a new weapon for the first time.

Royal New Zealand Navy frigate Te Kaha and almost 400 defence personnel will join 26 other nations and around 25,000 other defence staff for the biennial Exercise Rim of the Pacific (RIMPAC).

The vessel is one of 45 ships and five submarines involved.

As part of the event, the Te Kaha will test launch a Penguin anti-ship missile from the Defence Force's new Seasprite helicopter.

Cdr Lenik says RIMPAC is a good chance for the Defence Force to train across a wide range of activities which it could be asked to do in future coalition operations.



The vessel left Devonport on May 3 to take part in exercises with the HMNZS Endeavour and the Royal Australian Navy to prepare for RIMPAC.

It then left Australian waters with HMAS Canberra earlier this month for Hawaii.

It then left Australian waters with HMAS Canberra earlier this month for Hawaii.

RIMPAC started in 1971 and involved the Australian, New Zealand, Canadian, UK and US navies.

New Zealand was a frequent attendee until the ANZUS dispute in the 1980s over the country's nuclear-free stance.

The NZDF took part in an observer role in 2010, but were full participants in 2012 and 2014.

The NZDF Bastille Day contingent has been rehearsing at Satory military camp on the outskirts of Paris, France. Australia and New Zealand are the countries of honour at this year’s parade which is one of the oldest and largest in the world.

The rehearsals are conducted with the Australian and New Zealand contingents and a selection of French military including naval and army personnel. Each rehearsal run is videoed then reviewed by the French command team and the commanding officers of each unit.

There are also plenty of opportunities to catch up with our Australian and French counterparts

More than 3000 military personnel, 212 vehicles, 241 mounted Republican Guards, 55 planes and 30 helicopters will take part in the 14 July parade.

Regimental colours and banners representing New Zealand units that served in the First World War will be paraded by 86 NZDF personnel on the Champs-Élysèes during the parade – the first time these flags have been paraded together outside of New Zealand.

New Zealand confirms South Korea's HHI for fleet tanker programme

Ridzwan Rahmat, Singapore - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly
18 July 2016



Key Points
New Zealand selects Hyundai Heavy Industries for its fleet tanker replacement programme
The vessel will be ice-strengthened for operations in the Southern Ocean and Antarctica
The New Zealand government has approved the acquisition of new fleet tanker for the Royal New Zealand Navy (RNZN) for NZD493 million (USD349 million), the country's minister for defence, Gerry Brownlee, announced on 18 July.

The platform, which will replace the RNZN's 30-year old HMNZS Endeavour , will be built by South Korean shipbuilder Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) and is expected to be delivered in 2020.

"This vessel will be significantly larger, will be able to refuel two ships at a time while underway, carry and refuel defence force helicopters, produce and store water, and store and transport bulk goods," said Brownlee in a statement.

"The government has also opted to include ice-strengthening and winterisation features, representing a very useful enhanced capability when compared to the current tanker," he said, adding that it is important for New Zealand to have an asset that is capable of supporting a presence in Antarctica and the Southern Ocean.

No technical specifications were provided by the defence ministry to accompany Brownlee's announcement but computer generated imagery of the tanker released by the RNZN via its official social media channel on the same day depict a vessel with a single superstructure featuring two replenishment at sea (RAS) masts, one each on the port and starboard sides. The design also features a flight deck that can accommodate one helicopter.

The platform has also been pictured with a close-in weapon system, which most closely resembles the Raytheon Phalanx 20 mm turret, on its bow.

Endeavour is scheduled to be retired in 2018.

In port visit, New Zealand and U.S. seek to bolster military ties
David Larter, Navy Times 5:07 p.m. EDT July 22, 2016


After a 30-year impasse, the U.S. Navy is returning to the land of orcs and wizards this fall.

Vice President Joe Biden, alongside New Zealand Prime Minister John Key, announced Thursday that the U.S. has accepted New Zealand’s invitation to send a ship to the Southeast Pacific ally to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Royal New Zealand Navy in November.

New Zealand, which served as the backdrop for Peter Jackson’s epic "Lord of the Rings" movies, has prohibited nuclear-powered ships and ships carrying nuclear weapons since the mid-1980s. The U.S. policy of neither confirming nor denying the presence of nuclear weapons created an impasse that has meant no U.S. warships have visited one of the world's most beautiful and remote nations since.

The New Zealand government announced in July 2016 that it has approved the vessel's acquisition for NZD493 million (USD353 million). The platform will replace the RNZN's only replenishment tanker, HMNZS Endeavour (A 11), which has been in service since April 1988.

The new tanker will displace 24,000 tonnes, and has a length of 166 m, an overall beam of 24.5 m, and a design draught of 8.5 m. The ship will feature an 'axe bow' design for fuel efficiency, and has a top speed of 16 kt. It will be equipped with two NATO-compliant replenishment at sea (RAS) masts, one each on the port and starboard sides.

The platform will have liquid cargo capacity for 8,000 tonnes of diesel fuel, 1,550 tonnes of aviation fuel, and 250 tonnes of fresh water. The ship can also carry up to 12 standard 20 ft containers, four of which can contain dangerous goods such as ammunition, and will be equipped with a winterised crane that can lift up to 25 tonnes.

With a hangar and flight deck, the vessel can accommodate and sustain one NH90 helicopter, and features accommodation for 98 including 64 core crew members of the ship. The tanker will carry two rigid hull inflatable boats (RHIBs) for visit, board, and seizure missions.

For self-defence, the vessel has been designed to be armed with two mini-Typhoon remote-controlled weapon stations (one each on the port and starboard sides) and one Phalanx close-in weapon system (CIWS) turret on its bow.

New Ship to Deliver Enhanced Naval Capability
(Source: New Zealand Government; issued Aug 24, 2016)
Defence Minister Gerry Brownlee says the Government has approved a Ministry of Defence and New Zealand Defence Force recommendation to request tenders for a new naval ship to support littoral operations.

The announcement follows last month’s awarding of a $493 million contract to deliver a new naval tanker.

The Littoral Operations Support Capability will provide a platform for Royal New Zealand Navy hydrography, deep diving and mine countermeasures activities.

“This ship will provide the RNZN Littoral Warfare Unit with a dedicated support ship that offers a range of useful capabilities in one hull,” Mr Brownlee says.

“I recently visited members of the Littoral Warfare Unit as they participated in the RIMPAC exercise in Hawaii, and was very impressed by the work they do mapping the sea floor and employing deep divers to conduct a range of operations.

“This new vessel is a much-needed platform for this unit to carry out their important work.”

The new ship will replace two Navy ships, the 40 year old diving ship HMNZS Manawanui, which is due to retire in 2018, and the hydrographic ship HMNZS Resolution, which was retired in 2012.

Mr Brownlee says the new vessel is one of a range of new capabilities to modernise the NZDF signalled in the recently-launched Defence White Paper.

“The ship will offer new capabilities that will support NZDF sea-to-shore operations in low to medium threat environments.

“It will be used, for example, to identify safe approaches and landing zones when harbour channels or ports are unavailable after natural disasters.

“It will have particular utility in the Pacific, assisting with humanitarian and disaster relief operations.

“The ship will also enhance the NZDF’s ability to support search and rescue, salvage, and hazard clearance activities around New Zealand and in the South Pacific.

The Littoral Warfare Unit is responsible for providing specialist services to the Defence Force, New Zealand Police, Maritime New Zealand and other government agencies in the littoral area. A formal request for tenders will be issued in early September.

La Royal New Zealand Air Force modernise ses P-3 !





Wellington, la Royal New Zealand Air Force (RNZAF) a lancé un programme de modernisation de sa flotte d’avions de patrouille maritime de type Lockheed P3K2 « Orion ». C’est Boeing qui a été choisi pour la réalisation de la mise à jour. Le contrat est estimé à près de 35 millions de dollars.

Au total se sont cinq appareils qui sont concernés par cette modernisation. Cette mise à jour doit permettre de maintenir le petite flotte opérationnelle jusqu’en 2020, date à laquelle le ministère de la défense de la Nouvelle-Zélande prévoit de lancer un programme de remplacement.

En attendant mieux, les Lockheed P-3K2 « Orion » de la RNZAF seront dotés d’améliorations en ce qui concerne les logiciels du radar, de nouvelles radios et des systèmes acoustiques améliorés. Les systèmes de guerre-électronique seront également mis à jour.

Lockheed P-3C « Orion » :

La version finale, P-3C, conserva la cellule et la motorisation de la version précédente, le P-3B, mais fut équipée d'un nouveau système de lutte anti-sous-marine et d'un Air Tactical Data Systems. Entre 1974 et 1984. Le P-3C peut emporter diverses armes dont des missiles AGM-84 « Harpoon » sur des points de charges externes, 4 torpilles Mk.46 ou 2 bombes sous-marines Mk.101 en soute et peut aussi utiliser des bouées acoustiques.
