Something of a challenge, all the way around:
TRAINING for the Royal Australian Navy’s elite force of submariners will continue despite the virtual crippling of the $6 billion fleet of Collins-Class boats because of chronic onboard mechanical and electrical failures.
Fifty crew from HMAS Farncomb, recalled to port last week after suffering generator failure, will continue their training on a sister ship, HMAS Collins.
HMAS Waller is the only boat in the fleet of six still operational.
Anyone have any idea how underfunded US ship maintenance is this year?
I’ve sort of lost track.
