even if we were to opt for nuclear it doesn't sound as if there is any construction room for us to join the Aussies

A really good read, framing the current and upcoming challenges RAN have to face.

The really salient point that jumped out to me in this article was:

"But a re-set is not built in a day, and as my former boss, Secretary Michael Wynne, often commented, “you have 80% of your force 20 years from now, right now.”

This is the crux of the matter, strategists and tacticians be damned.

They're offering incentives to personnel to support the new subs:


Nothing like a shake and bake nuclear physicist program to give a whole new meaning to the words 'risk management' ;)

Don't be surprised if they bring their recruiting up north to us. Just like Irving scoured N. Ireland, UK, Romania and Poland for experienced shipbuilders when the AOPS was ramping up, Australia will be looking to poach our Nuclear Scientists and Technicians. Lot's of good reasons to emigrate to Australia.

I wish I knew anything about nuclear science.....too old to learn now. But sign me up to live on the Gold Coast!
