Australian Navy to Receive Its First Air Warfare Destroyer

The first of three new Australian air warfare destroyer, HMAS Hobart, is due for delivery tomorrow, May 23, 2015.

This marks a significant milestone for the Australian Air Warfare Destroyer (AWD) Alliance, made up of shipbuilder ASC, mission systems integrator Raytheon Australia and the Department of Defence, responsible for delivering the three highly capable warships to the Royal Australian Navy.

The AWD program is the most complex surface combatant construction project ever undertaken in Australia.
