USA or UK!

The UK New Subs are cheaper new than the USA version.

The UK is also in the process of upgrading it's fleet, and the replaced one's seem pretty good.

Whoever we buy from, they will certainly be happy to provide a sub or subs and use our base or bases and provide training.

It will probably be cheaper than keeping the Collins design going.

If it is USA, I hope they allow the Sub contract to cancel out some of the orders for the dud new fighter.

PS: One current Australian Senator has worked as crew on a USA Nuclear Sub.

Everybody is a genius, but if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing it is stupid.

There is talk of leasing US subs until ours are built. So I would imagine Aussie crews would be trained on the job.

I would assume like the RAAF has exchange programs with the USAF the RAN will send submariners over to play with the USN.
