Big news today is the details of AUKUS, the technology sharing arrangement between Australia, the US, and the United Kingdom that will result in Australia getting some nuclear subs. I have some thoughts:

If all of this works out, Australia will have a world-class fleet of nuclear attack submarines thanks to AUKUS. The RAN’s overall capabilities will rival those of China, France, and the United Kingdom.

Many questions remain, of course, including the long-run capacity of the Royal Australian Navy to man and maintain these ships while also taking care of the rest of its extensive responsibilities.

It’s a BFD, and I suspect that it’s the foundation of a larger agreement that may eventually include Japan, South Korea, and Canada.
