Do you think you can answer this question?

"One of the key topics in the Military Modernisation and Future Force Enhancement unit was Major Systems, which includes items such as frigates, submarines, tanks, logistic vehicles, fighter jets, helicopters, rifles etc. Major Systems are forecast to account for 40% of the Defence budget by 2030, which is a very significant increase from 25% in 2017 (Commonwealth of Australia 2016, Department of Defence, Capability Life Cycle Detailed Design).

Write a 800 word +/- 10% essay on the following: Based on what you know and what you have learnt in this unit do you think this shift in funding allocation between the various elements of Defence capability is appropriate for Australia’s future Defence strategy and challenges. Justify your response with detailed reasons."
