All of the RAAF’s Globemasters are fitted with a satellite communications (SATCOM) capability. Two aircraft have been configured for broadband SATCOM, and it is expected that the whole fleet of eight will be equipped with a new wideband SATCOM system from 2018.

The RAAF’s eighth and last C-17 was delivered to  RAAF Base Amberley on November 4.
