More on how Australia will subsidize an extended deployment of a Spanish Navy support ship because Defence/DMO/RAN leadership has dropped the ball on our own support ship sustainment.
I wonder if Spain has some patrol ships we can borrow for either properly enforcing our borders or, depending on the political will, provide more happy-cabby service for illegals.
Maybe this Spanish support ship could make a few runs providing dock-to-dock service for illegals.
Seriously though, it does look like a nice ship.
I wonder how many years it would take for the DMO/RAN to ruin a new ship with their current support methods if Australia were to procure some of these?
