The Grumpy Strategists cover US budget cuts from 2 to 1 sub in its 2025 budget, the UK Parliament’s report (link here) on the UK’s unaffordable defence plans & its failing nuclear reactor program, with Australia choosing this moment to give the UK $4.6bn for AUKUS sub design & nuclear reactors, the US delay into the 2040s to its SSN(X) sub – and the black comedy (for Australians) from the French sub Australia paid $4bn to develop – but then cancelled – winning the Dutch submarine competition.
