Submarine Construction Deal

The representatives of the Australia, the United Kingdom and the United States (AUKUS) met at Naval Base Point Loma this week to announce a major deal for construction of submarines. Point Loma is the home of Squadron 11 and among the boats is the USS Missouri (SSN 780) the seventh Virginia Class boat. The Commander in Chief was present and, along with AUKUS planners, toured the Missouri after the announcement. Exact details of the deal remain to be worked out but the tour was described as an opportunity for them to look at US homeports and how they operate.
