Awesome, made in Australia.

Problem is that it's hard to forget that we couldn't crew the six we already have and I don't think the combat suites in half of them became operational before they 'aged' in any case. Then there's the experience of the Air Warfare destroyer program and the F35 Strike Fighter or whatever they call it. Cost over-runs, due into service estimates moved back year after year, one inquiry after another, all of which point to political, defence and public service bureaucratic incompetence, duplication, hissy fits and all the rest.

I hope they get it right this time.
