Paix, mais à l'énorme coût
Yesterday, the Australian Defence Minister, the Hon. Dr. Brendan Nelson, signed a contract with Raytheon to build 3 Air Warfare Destroyers for The Royal Australian Navy at Osborne in Adelaide.
The value of this contract was 1.2 billion US dollars and the total cost will be about 8 billion.
The deal is for Destroyers to provide air defence for accompanying ships, land forces and infrastructure in coastal areas and for self-protection against attacking missiles and aircraft.
This signing will enable the building phase to commence and the finalisation of production design, widespread engagement of Australian Industry in equipment source selection, the construction of three ships in Australia and ultimately deliver the most advanced destroyers to ever enter Royal Australian Navy service.
Je suis désolé que ceci ne soit pas traduit en Français, mais il est un peu difficile pour moi. Ce qui est plus, je préfère des choses qui sont moins techniques ! !
