EUA, RU e Austrália acordam construção de submarino nuclear

By Jordi Bou

March 14, 2023 - Os EUA, RU e Austrália vão criar uma nova esquadra de submarinos de propulsão nuclear, destinada a conter as ambições da China na região do Indo-Pacífico.

Australia's nuclear-powered submarine programme with the United States and Britain will cost up to $368 billion between now and the mid-2050s, the country's biggest single defence project in history.

Under the deal, called AUKUS, the U.S. intends to sell Australia three U.S. Virginia class nuclear-powered submarines, which are built by General Dynamics, in the early 2030s, with an option for Australia to buy two more if needed.

The multi-stage project would culminate with British and Australian production and operation of a new submarine class – SSN-AUKUS – a “trilaterally developed” vessel based on Britain’s next-generation design that would be built in Britain and Australia and include “cutting edge” U.S. technologies.
