This essay argues that the previously strong orientation in Australian defense planning toward achievement of self-reliance, and the heretofore major influence of the armed services in force development, have combined to produce a defense force structure incapable of meeting stated Australian politico-military objectives in its own region. The current force structure review, coordinated in the office of the Chief of Defence Force, has the potential to remedy these shortcomings.
