A deal is coming… Australia will own nuclear submarines


Within the agreement signed between the two parties, Australia is scheduled to provide $3 billion US dollars to British industry to support the construction of nuclear-powered submarines and ensure the arrival of its new fleet on time, the two countries announced on Friday.

British Defense Secretary Grant Shapps said the submarine program was expensive but necessary.

“Nuclear-powered submarines are not cheap, but we live in a more dangerous world where we are seeing a more assertive region with China, and a more dangerous world everywhere with what is happening in the Middle East and Europe,” Shapps told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation. “Nations need to invest in making sure adversaries see that we are serious about our security.”

The submarines, which are of the Virginia class, will be primarily British-designed and will have an American weapons system. (Sky News Arabia)
