As Predicted New Zealand Buying 4 P-8 Poseidons as its main MPA Force

As predicted in January 2017 when I said "I think NZ buying 4 x P-8 Poseidon MPAs is more likely...This is noting NZ's main ally, Australia, is buying the P-8."

The New Zealand Defence Minister, Ron Mark, July 9, 2018, announced it is buying 4 x P-8 MPAs. Ron Mark notes the purchase will allow New Zealand to "work effectively with partners including Australia, the United Kingdom, and the United States, which all operate, or will operate, [P-8s]”
