I hope they will reconsider a home grown product, it might save some pride, especially if they can drop the self interest aspects of this type of project and actually get what they need rather than what some people want. I would ask any board that decides this issue, "Which of these projects would you send your kids into harms way in"?
First and foremost, they have to balance their difficult requirements against cost and possible overruns.
Those two conflicting plagues are the ones that already ruined the Collins 20 years ago and are presently ruining their successor.
If they don't solve these two major issues, then whoever build more Collins, upgraded Collins or they successors; be it Australians themselves, Swedish, French, Germans, Martian or from Sirius, will fall the same way.
