It's good, but I'd remove Australia having two aircraft carriers of any type. We haven't had even one since the HMAS Melbourne was decommisioned in 1982 and scrapped a few years later (after China studied it and used it to train their own pilots in carrier operations).

Since then there's been a few noises about obtaining a new carrier, but the expense, and lack of definate need, has stalled all progress.

Australian naval air assests consist of little more than a handful of helicopters (mostly Blackhawks I believe) and land based fixed wing coastal patrol aircraft.
