"The start of construction of the navy’s $44 billion new fleet of frigates is poised to be pushed back for up to 18 months after the Morrison government agreed to delay the project because of issues with the design."

"Work building the first frigate may not start in Adelaide until 2024, after senior ministers approved the delay last week. The move comes as the Auditor-General on Tuesday flagged a potential audit into the project this financial year."

"The first of the nine frigates is meant to be finished by 2029 and in service in 2031."

The projects for the Navy are going disastrous for Australia. A complete opposite of how things are going for the Army.

One thing I don't understand is why we have two LHDs with ski jumps yet we aren't planning to buy F-35B's. It baffles me.
