The majority of the Royal New Zealand Navy (RNZN) fleet is due to reach the end of service life by the mid-2030s. The need to invest in replacement capabilities has already been signalled in the previous Defence Capability Plan (2019). Rather than taking a ‘like for like’ approach to replacement, there is a unique opportunity to consider alternative fleet configurations, alternative ways to operate, and alternative approaches to support the fleet in the upcoming Defence Capability Plan.
These opportunities will be explored in order to inform the wider Defence Policy Review,including assisting the development of the Defence Capability Plan. This reflects the Future Force Design Principles (FFDP) approach to engage industry earlier in planning and design.
