Build australia’s new submarine fleet in adelaide promise check on shipbuilding delays as federal government unveils new fleet
전주출장안마The new Australian에스엠 카지노 Navy submarine fleet is expected to be unveiled next week when the government announces it has built the country’s last five submarines, six of which are due to be completed by 2016.
The announcement followed a months-long tender process to build the fleet of four-tonne submarines in Adelaide which saw Australia bid the US to win the design, which was then submitted to Canada.
The new submarine will give the Australian navy a more flexible and mobile force than the four-tonne submarines which have plagued the force since 2006.

The Australian navy unveiled the new Australian navy submarine fleet in Adelaide on Thursday, December 18, 2013, the last day for a competitive tender. The fleet is expected to be completed by 2016 and the navy will officially be the first in Australia to supply the fleet that comprises about two dozen patrol boats, 12 submarines and four destroyers
Navy officials said the contract’s development in Adelaide should be understood as it being a test of a range of technologies in the submarine industry.
Australia’s submarine fleet has been plagued for years by delays and last year, there were serious safety incidents that disrupted operations as some aircraft on the frigates were grounded because of electrical problems.
The fleet is expected to increase to 12 submarines and four destroyers by 2020.
A spokesperson for the military said yesterday that they were confident the fleet design would meet current defence needs, but acknowledged that any design modifications to the fleet that were required by a changing world environment had an impact on operational capability.
Australia’s new navy submarines will be capable of conducting ‘cruising’ operations at the surface level and being mobile in the event of combat.
Australian Navy Commander-in-Chief, Vice Admiral David Richardson, will visit Adelaide to inspect the submarines, which are the first Australian subs to be developed at the shipyards in Adelaide, which began work on the Submarine Weapons Establishment at Port Augusta, Georgia in 2000.
A Defence Science Board report earlier this month predicted the Australian fleet would cost $80 million to build each submarine. This will rise to $150 million before the initial contract is paid off.
The defence and the navy believe they a안산안마re on track to be able to maintain a submarine force of around 12 boats by 2020.
As yet there is not an agreed list of operational tasks for the Australian fleet, but in the new order the fleet will feature at least eight surfac
