How much of that of the price increase was caused by the French side and how much by the Australian? The submarines should have been built in Australia, by a shipyard without any experience in submarine building - and that constellation make price increases likely and will make price increases likely for the future nuclear-powered submarines.
The newest LA class submarine is already 25 years old, the oldest still in service 36 years... Not a very attractive option.
