        And Greece is a fairly poor country that blows a huge amount on military, because they have an enemy at their gates.

          That's... low
          Even in the Belgium army, we ask a bare minimum of 15 pushups that's really the bottom level.
          That's for both men and women, only difference is that women are allowed to do it on their knees.
          25 pushups is perfect score.

          What an actual joke, you cannot be serious.
          This is British Army's requirements:
          Press-ups — max number in 2 minutes, males to achieve at least 44, females 21. 2.4km timed run — need to run less than 10 minutes 30 seconds (males) or 12 min 45 sec (females).

              Those are aussie standards too, except for combat roles the chicks have to do the same as all the men alongside being able to carry 20kg over 5km

        You know you can not tell them you have autism right? If you were diagnosed as a child you it's impossible for them to know unless you tell them.

          NZ requires a full medical report by a doctor to apply. This is why our military can't recruit anyone

            That sucks, I'm in the RAAF and half the people I work with either have autism or ADD. How else do you get to be pilots or Intel.

    >What went wrong with the NZDF?
    leftyfaggism and international-scale dole bludging

    what could have been?
    >NZ GDP: us$ 250 billion
    >Aus GDP: 1.5 trillion
    look at the ADF, you'd only afford about a sixth of that

    now, per NATO guidelines, 2% ought to be spent on defence
    that's $5 billion annually

    80% of that goes to operating expenditure, while 20% is for buying kit
    that's $1 billion annually

    most major military equipment have 30-year lifespans
    so that's $30 billion dollars

    now you tell me: what can the NZDF buy and operate, for the next 30 years, with that budget?

      I love how the media in the west praised her handling of the pandemic like it was even possible to fuck it up in a country like New Zealand

    Its all hard to justify. Even if we spent a significant portion of gdp, we couldn't buy any real gamechangers nor could we man them, which is all secondary to there being no military existential threats to begin with. In principle sure, we shouldn't be a parasite on our allies, but in practice its hard to spend money for something that you know will be insignificant no matter how much you spend.

    WHO THE FUCK CARES? New Zealand is in some isolated corner of the world and no country beside the United States can invade it without taking over Australia first, which itself is protected by the United States.
