Australians can't be trust anymore when they sign a contract.
The french are able to offer to build nuclear subs.
And in parallel Australia can sign a strategic deal with the US an UK.
This is really unfair.

Naval Group can be trust unlike the Australian government. Look at the indian contract. The tech transfert building scorpenes ships went quite well.

The Scorpene deal had plenty of controversy too.

Signing contact is not the end of a deal. They have to deliver on the promises.

If history is anything. Naval group cannot be trusted. You should read about indian contract. More than 5 year delay with huge price increase after the deal signature.

Much better price tag than the French deal.

Not necessarily. The 90B AUD comes up to $5.5B per sub USD. That's pretty much the estimated cost of America's next SSN. Bring in local Aus production, prices can skyrocket even further.

If those 12 Attacks were made in France, you could drop the price by half at the minimum.

It's obviously better to get SSNs for that price. But it's not going to be cheaper unless Aus abandons local production.

"The real question is whether a US-led pushback on the security side against China in the Indo-Pacific region is in Europe’s strategic interest – or not,” she said.

Indeed the real question.
