Australia should have bought Soryu but instead, inexplicably, we decided to convert a French nuclear boat into a conventional one. We won't have our first vessel until like 2030 and the last of 8 due circa 2050 I think? We can't even crew and operate 2 Collins right now anyway…what a joke for a nation surrounded by sea.

Those Japanese boats do look very nice, and capable.

It'll be interesting to see how this works out.

Wish we'd buy a few.

Does seem a bit daft to try to adapt a nuke boat to a conventional design, especially when there is such a perfectly good, proven option already available from Japan.
