The latter, in particular, will be crucial as Australia's current fleet of diesel and electric-powered submarines is reaching the end of its life cycle and needs to be replaced. These objectives were restated in the 2013 Defence White Paper and Australia's defence spending forecasts continue to point to the importance of such defence strategy.
