Today, the Albanese Government has released its blueprint for a larger and more lethal surface combatant fleet for the Royal Australian Navy, more than doubling the size of the surface combatant fleet under the former government’s plan.

This follows the Government’s careful consideration of the recommendations of the independent analysis of the surface combatant fleet, commissioned in response to the Defence Strategic Review.

Our strategic circumstances require a larger and more lethal surface combatant fleet, complemented by a conventionally-armed, nuclear-powered submarine 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 independent analysis of Navy’s surface combatant fleet lamented the current surface combatant fleet was the oldest fleet Navy has operated in its history, and emphasised the need for immediate action to boost Navy’s air defence, long-range strike, presence and anti-submarine warfare capabilities.

In line with independent analysis’ recommendations, Navy’s future surface combatant fleet will comprise:

-26 major surface combatants consisting of:
*Three Hobart class air warfare destroyers with upgraded air defence and strike capabilities
*Six Hunter class frigates to boost Navy’s undersea warfare and strike capabilities
*11 new general purpose frigates that will provide maritime and land strike, air defence and escort capabilities
*Six new Large Optionally Crewed Surface Vessels (LOSVs) that will significantly increase Navy’s long-range strike capacity

-Six remaining Anzac class frigates with the two oldest ships to be decommissioned as per their planned service life.

The Government has also accepted the independent analysis’ recommendations to have:

-25 minor war vessels to contribute to civil maritime security operations, which includes six Offshore Patrol Vessels (OPVs).

The Hunter class frigates will be built at the Osborne shipyard in South Australia, and will be followed by the replacement of the Hobart class destroyer. The Hobart destroyers will be upgraded at Osborne with the latest US Navy Aegis combat system.

The new general purpose frigate will be accelerated to replace the Anzac class frigates, meaning the Transition Capability Assurance (TransCAP) upgrades are no longer required. These new general purpose frigates will be modern, capable and more lethal, requiring smaller crews than the Anzac.

Consolidation of the Henderson precinct is currently underway, as recommended by the Defence Strategic Review. Successful and timely consolidation will enable eight new general purpose frigates to be built at the Henderson precinct, and will also enable a pathway to build six new Large Optionally Crewed Surface Vessels in Western Australia.

The Albanese Government is committed to continuous naval shipbuilding in Australia and the design of Navy’s future fleet will provide a stable and ongoing pipeline of work to the 2040s and beyond.

In order to implement the recommendations of the independent analysis, the Albanese Government has committed to funding the planned acquisition and sustainment of the future surface fleet.

This will see the Albanese Government inject an additional $1.7 billion over the Forward Estimates and $11.1 billion over the next decade in Defence for an accelerated delivery of Navy’s future surface combatant fleet and to expand Australia’s shipbuilding industry.

This comes on top of the Albanese Government’s investment of an additional $30.5 billion to Defence’s Integrated Investment Program out to 2032-33.

This additional $11.1 billion of funding for the future surface fleet alone brings both acquisition and sustainment investment in the fleet to $54.2 billion in total over the next decade.

This investment provides a clear pathway for the shipbuilding industry and workforce in South Australia and Western Australia.

The Albanese Government thanks Vice Admiral William Hilarides, USN (Retd), Ms Rosemary Huxtable, AO, PSM and Vice Admiral Stuart Mayer, AO, RAN for their leadership of the independent analysis and contribution to the most comprehensive update to Navy’s fleet in decades.

    Brimob berhasil mengharumkan Indonesia lewat kompetisi kejuaran UAE SWAT Challeng ke-5. Pasukan elit Polri tersebut mengalahkan Comando de Operacoes Taticas (COT) asal Brazil.

    Sama seperti Brimob, COT pun adalah pasukan elit kepolisian Brazil.

    Untuk diketahui, kejuaran UAE SWAT ini berlangsung Al Raweyah, Dubai, Uni Emirat Arab pada Kamis, 8 Februari 2024.

    Nah rupanya ini adalah kali ketiga Korps Brimob adu keahlian antar para polisi dari sejumlah negara.

    Tim Brimob Indonesia menyelesaikan misi tersebut dalam waktu 1,16 menit. Sedangkan COT Brazil membutuhkan waktu selama 1,17 menit.

    Aksi tersebut membawa nama Indonesia pada kemenangan di SWAT Challenge 2024.

    Sebagai informasi, ajang UAE SWAT Challenge ke-5 ini disebut sebagai ajang uji kemampuan antar polisi terbesar yang pernah ada. Tercatat ada 76 tim yang ikut serta dalam kompetisi bergengsi itu.

  18. Kapal paling Halimunan di duni akhirat Maharogolele Class, Berenang tanpa Berlayar, membuat gelak tanpa melawak

  19. klo soal pengen punya kapal gede, dan kuantitas
    osi duit ada, kemampuan bikin kapal cukup baik tapi masalahnya mereka kekurangan sdm buat operasional kaprang hahaπŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹
    buktinya kapal merek perna ada yg mangkrak di darat karena tak ada operator haha!πŸ€­πŸ˜…πŸ€­

    beda ama sodara tiri osi, si KL sdm ada, tapi duit cekak terus bikin kapal Salah Fotong ..makanya kapal darat uda 1 dekade haha!🀣🀣🀣

    1. Australia duitnya juga agak "susah". Potong 3 Type 26 buat dapat 11 frigate tipe lain. Tambahan dana buat dapat ToT gaya FREMM atau SIGMA kita.

      Tinggal standar susahnya beda.πŸ˜…

    2. jiaaahh susahnya kaum borju ya bedala ama kaum jelata om irs haha!πŸ™ƒπŸ˜„πŸ™ƒ

  20. MALON gak berani komen di topik kapal 🀣🀣🀣🀣🀣🀣🀣🀣
