What this page should include is Air Power Australia's intent to be awarded a contract under AIR-6000 to upgrade the F-111 aircraft and THIS is what motivates their criticism of Government and RAAF's plans.

If you can provide a reference for it, please add it yourself. --Nick Dowling 08:29, 7 August 2007 (UTC)

Criticisms[edit]

Given that government sources were cited in support of percieved 'negative' commentary, it is insufficiently intellectually robust to merely delete and claim the material and the sources as being misrepresented in a 'one word-er' in the edit history of the page. Particularly for an aspiring encyclopaedia. Battlensigns (talk) 23:34, 10 April 2008 (UTC)

I agree that the criticisms are warranted - while APA puts massive submissions into just about every defence inquiry, they don't seem to ever have any impact on the final conclusions reached in the inquiries reports. The current text needs citations to 3rd party sources which state that ARA was not successful, however. --Nick Dowling (talk) 08:48, 11 April 2008 (UTC)
