Welcome to the facilities project website for the New Air Combat Capability (NACC) Facilities Project The information contained within this web page is derived from the AIR 6000 Phase 2A/B New Air Combat Capability Parliamentary Standing Committee for Public Works Statement of Evidence. For more information on this document, refer to the PWC Process.


The New Air Combat Capability (NACC) Facilities Project is a $1.6 billion investment into RAAF base facilities at:
• RAAF Base Williamtown (NSW)
• Defence Establishment Myambat (NSW)
• RAAF Base Tindal (Northern Territory)
• Forward Operating Bases at RAAF Bases, Townsville (QLD), Darwin(NT), Curtin(WA), Scherger(QLD), Learmonth (WA) and Pearce(WA).

This important national Defence project will see upgrades to RAAF base facilities in preparation for the Joint Strike Fighter’s introduction in 2019.

The NACC Facilities scope at each site relates specifically to facilities and infrastructure works, not the aircraft or its operations which are currently undergoing a separate and comprehensive Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) process under the Commonwealth Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation (EPCB) Act 1999. The ongoing EIS process covers all issues related to the introduction of the aircraft including operation and noise.
