Future Submarines

Australia’s Future Submarine Program is the largest Defence capital investment program in Australia’s history. At a reported cost in the order of $80 billion, it has been labelled as a ‘megaproject’ by all international standards and the most challenging acquisition program it has undertaken, the success of which will be driven by preparations during the design phase.

The Future Submarine Program will deliver 12 regionally-superior submarines to the Royal Australian Navy with the first likely to enter service in the early 2030’s.
