The four British submarines purchased nearly a decade ago are nearing the end of their retrofit process and should be fully operational in less than two years. Which submarine will not be ready?
#93171. Asked by ChapmanI. (Mar 05 08 5:39 AM)
February 15, 2008 -- Vice-Admiral Drew Robertson said Friday he expects HMCS Victoria, HMCS Cornerbrook and HMCS Windsor to be in service "over the coming year, year and a half... sailing simultaneously."
There was a fire aboard HMCS Chicoutimi in October 2004 as it sailed from Britain to Canada. Lt. Chris Saunders of Halifax died as a result of the blaze.
Robertson indicated the vessel still won't be repaired for another two years.
