LA or Trafalgar class subs are way too long in the tooth.I’m not sure it’s evolving. Rather, they are playing their cards close to their chest as the 18 month review hasn’t taken place. I’m sure they know what they want for a vessel, the question is how quickly can they get it and gain the experience to crew it. Also, the whole system of safety and the manufacturing and supply details.
It does make we wonder if we’ll see some Los Angeles class or Trafalgar class vessels in Australian waters with Australian crews. Amazing times.
