They only need the LA class as a training boat. nt
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.
