The last four hull blocks for the next HMAS Hobart have been delivered to the Air Warfare Destroyer Alliance in Adelaide following a week-long journey by sea from Newcastle. The two bow sections and two stern sections are part of the 31 prefabricated blocks that make up each ship. The final pieces, the forecastle that will hold the anchor and winch machinery and another for the ship’s five-inch gun, were delivered along with remaining aft blocks that will house the helicopter hangar and rudder controls.
