Informations

The New Zealand Defence Force (NZDF) Maori: Te Ope Katua O Aotearoa. Line of Defence of New Zealand comprises three services: The Royal New Zealand Navy and the New Zealand Army, and is commanded by and led by the Chief of Defence Force (CDF). Three defence-policy goals are the focus of New Zealand's Armed Forces: To defend New Zealand from low-level threats Contribute to regional security To play a role in global security efforts. New Zealand considers its national defense needs to be modest due to its geographic isolation and good relations with its neighbours.



The NZDF had 302 personnel overseas as of September 2017. This was due to New Zealand's geographical isolation and friendly relationships with its neighbours. On 1 July 2018, Air Marshal Kevin Short was named chief of Defence Force. As of 2018, Air Vice-Marshal Tony Davies is the vice chief of Defence Force.
