Answer to Mystery Question for Submariners
From yesterday's Mystery Question for Submariners
The [RAN] navy can barely muster enough hands to put two of its six Collins-class boats to sea. - source
Exactly how does a navy that cannot currently crew its fleet of 6 Collins class subs propose to crew twice as many new subs?
By providing targeted incentives for submariners that include training, adjusting crew numbers and formations, conditions of service, seatime and other initiatives, Defence will ensure that the current shortfalls are addressed, and that a robust submarine workforce is built for the future.

If begun now, the RAN submariner incentives program might actually have some chance of success, in our opinion. Good luck, all of our Australian friends!
