Yeah... Australia in the space of a few months is committing to spend around $31b AUD to purchase a battery of self propelled artillery and enough infantry fighting vehicles to kit out I think it's one battalion of troops. And this is off the shelf products rather than designing new kit.

I think it's roughly the same amount of dollars spent across the entirety of WW2 by Australia if you adjust 1940's pounds into 2021 AUD $$$$.

As I understand it, it's to purchase 450 IFVs, 30 self-propelled howitzers and 15 armoured ammunition resupply vehicles:

Well that's at least more than a single battalion. :p Ta.
