** ''VideoGame/TombRaiderIII'' has a unit of Aussie soldiers stranded in the South Pacific Islands after their plane crashed. The first one you meet had his leg eaten by the cannibalistic tribe on the island and the rest are wandering around the crash site as they defend themselves from raptors. Depending on how well behaved the AI is, the soldiers can hold their own against the dinosaurs and they may even kill some without your assistance.

** Also, more recently, Australia and America, the two nations having allied since the cold war. The [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ANZUS ANZUS treaty]] binds the nations together for military matters, and they have fought together several times including conflicts in the Korean War, Vietnam War, Gulf War, 2003 Iraq War and the current conflict in Afghanistan. However, the latter two have not pleased many Australians, due to the Army's recent history of being peacekeepers rather than active soldiers.

The [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Australian_Defence_Force Australian Defence Force]] is Australia's military. At about 100,000 personnel (full-time and reservists), it is the largest military in Oceania [[note]] That is to say, it larger than the tiny militaries of New Zealand and Fiji, and the near non-existent militaries of Papua New Guinea and small island nations such as Tonga[[/note]], but still smaller than most of the Asian military forces.

Australian forces were involved in both World Wars on the Triple Entente side in UsefulNotes/WW1 and the Allied side in UsefulNotes/WW2. Their most famous campaign of UsefulNotes/WorldWarOne was the failed Gallipoli Campaign in Turkey, although they also served on the Western Front in France and fought in the Middle East campaigns. Australia would later adopt the day of the Gallipoli landings (April 25) as their national day of remembrance, despite being a complete failure. In fact, the importance of ANZAC Day has risen to the point where it is the ''un''official national holiday -- Australia Day is generally seen as a time to have barbecues, watch fireworks, and watch cricket. In UsefulNotes/WorldWarTwo they were deployed to North Africa (most famously as the "Rats of Tobruk") and later, Australian soil was directly threatened, necessitating the creation of militia who earned distinction in the Kokoda campaign, where 200 Aussie militia held back 1200 Japanese along an extremely muddy and long trail in Papua New Guinea.

The Australians were also involved in the UsefulNotes/KoreanWar and UsefulNotes/TheVietnamWar (where they scared the Viet Cong and NVA shitless as they used the exact same guerrilla tactics, were so GenreSavvy they avoided ambushes and traps and were very patient, persistent and stubborn), as well as the Malayan Emergency, the Gulf War, the American occupation of Afghanistan, and the Iraq War. They've also participated in UN peacekeeping pretty much everywhere you can think of, although rarely in large numbers (with the notable exception of East Timor, where they were instrumental in ending the Indonesian occupation and stabilisng the country). During the UsefulNotes/ColdWar, the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ikara_(missile) Ikara anti-submarine missile]] was developed and built in Australia for the RAN.

*** Even if somehow a non-ally manages to get their resources together and bomb Australia, do you really think they would sit around twiddling their thumbs? They'd bomb you right back, or else their allies would be just a tad bit worried that the world's largest source of uranium is being taken.
