Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  2. So they'll be acting as a steel subcontractor then. Pretty far off returning to the submarine export market IMHO.

    Still, musn't knock it. Navantia make good ships and subs and if they've bought Barrow over DCN, EB and whatver Sevmash is called now, then then BAES must be doing something right.

    Good luck to them. Every export hour is money off the overhaead on MoD contracts.....
  3. Perhaps their backhander was bigger than the opposition's back hander, sorry I mean commission!
  4. I wonder if the US will ask for this contract to be investigated also ?
  5. the article says 7 Astute boats - do they know something we dont. I heard the order was stopping at 3!!
  6. Congratulations to the company for securing some valuable manufacturing jobs, the silly sods will probably put it together up side down or inside out and undo the good work though!!! :lol:
  7. There is so much US design input into those boats they should have sold Barrow to Electric Boat and just bought US designed ones off the shelf and saved a shitload of time and money…
