Question - one thing that has been discussed on the Facebook board is the possibility of any conflict in Papua New Guinea having logistics issues as to ammo

However Australia was producing small arms ammo and gunpowder and explosives and should be able to continue supporting their forces to some extent. There is the Mulwala Explosives Factory in New South Wales that made explosives and powder as well as munitions manufacturing factories and explosives factories at Maribyrnong (which closed in 1989 in our timeline due to restructuring), Footscray (which was closed in 1994), and Benalla, Victoria.

With those resources how long could Australia supply itself and possibly NZ given the worldwide cutoff of shipping that happened starting in late 1997 to early 1998 during the war?
