Navy’s enhanced lethality surface combatant fleet

Tuesday 20 February 2024

Royal Australian Navy's surface fleet is expected to more than double in size following the recommendations of the independent analysis of the surface combatant fleet.

Navy’s future fleet will be integral to ensure the safety and security of our sea lines of communication and maritime trade, through operations in our immediate region. This fleet will constitute the largest number of surface combatants since WWII.

The Government has also committed to increase Defence’s funding in the 2024-25 Federal Budget by $11.1 billion over the next decade to ensure the enhanced lethality surface combatant fleet is funded.

The Australian: More than just boats, AUKUS is about security, resilience

Monday 28 November 2022

By Ticky Fullerton

AUKUS presents three countries with an opportunity to reset their national security. It is across defence, yes, but it is also about broader intelligence, industry supply chain resilience, advanced manufacturing and exports, innovation, knowledge exchange and mobility.
