The Spaniards seem to be world class when it comes to modern ship building. we placed the orders well pre DFC and all seems to be going well. On time, on budget, much unlike our second hand junk.

Despite the American destroyer being the preferred option, the conclusion of the selection process in late June 2007 saw Navantia's Álvaro de Bazán design selected, as unlike the Evolved Arleigh Burkes, the Spanish ships were a less-risky design as they had been tested and proven, they could be in service four years earlier than the American-designed ships, and they would cost AU$1 billion less to build. There were also benefits in ordering the destroyers and the Canberra class landing helicopter dock ships from the same designer.

Very interesting video about Russian submarines and how they operate. A big no go for Tom Clancy fans though....
