Defence Connect Podcast Network

Feb 21, 2024

In this special episode of the Defence Connect Podcast, Liam Garman, Steve Kuper, and Rob Dougherty unpack the independent analysis into Navy’s surface combatant fleet – and what the recommendations will mean for the Royal Australian Navy and defence industry.

  • The podcast begins by examining how the recommendations will change the makeup of the Royal Australian Navy, with the introduction of up to 11 new general purpose frigates and the reduction of the Hunter Class program from nine to six.
  • The three then look into how the Royal Australian Navy appears to be grasping the benefits offered by autonomy.
  • They wrap-up the podcast discussing how the growth of Australia’s surface fleet to 26 may create challenges for the Defence workforce.
