THE Royal Australian Navy has produced a secret $4 billion "wish list" that includes an aircraft carrier, an extra air warfare destroyer and long-range Tomahawk cruise missiles for its submarine fleet.
The RAN wants a third 26,000 tonne amphibious ship equipped with vertical take-off jet fighters, a fourth $2 billion air warfare destroyer and cruise missiles that could strike targets thousands of kilometres away.
LOL. What non-existent operational aircraft are they going to fly off of the dream carrier?
$2B for an extra Air Warfare Destroyer? Right now they are tracking at $3B each.
Besides the idea that well, there is no money, who would crew these ghost ships?
A dying man can dream.
