$54 Mil under budget?! Ok, so what is it missing? :haha::rofl: It does show that our Boat builders can do it right! :clapping:

If you could send some of your shipbuilders over here to explain how they managed to be under budget to BAe Systems and Vosper Thornycroft it'd be most appreciated. Heck Swan Hunter managed to be 100% out on their estimate for two LPDs, despite building them from someone else's plans!

I don't know much about the VA-class boats. I know they replaced the Seawolf class because those were too expensive, so I'm guessing these aren't quite as good, but are still better than the 688/LA class?

I'd gather they're a bit better than the 688 class, since they have a pump-jet propulsion system instead of the normal screw, and a photonic mast instead of the traditional periscope... Weaponswise though, both seem the same, with 4 forward torpedo tubes and 12 vertical launch tubes for Tomahawks.
