Not convinced they've abandoned their rather ambitious aspiration to design and build their own, but they certainly appear to be moving towards a logical baseline with a very competent partner. Might even reduce the brain drain from what's left of the UK submarine industrial base.......

Perhaps the Jap boats are a stop gap while they design their own. I read elsewhere that the boats being considered are by comparison to the Collins boats short range making their base in Perth too far from the theatre of action.

I'm sure there was talk of some being based in Darwin.
The question is who is going to crew them? They struggle to crew what they have.
