The engine uses two LM2500 gas turbines and two German Mann 3240 V16 diesel engines to drive two pod-type electric propulsion units.To put it simply, such a power plant, with extremely strong sea maneuverability, can theoretically turn in circles!However, such a ship with advanced design concept and good power integration unexpectedly lost power after sending out to support Tonga!The Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) reported that because of the hot weather off the coast of Tonga, with temperatures around 30 degrees Celsius, many Australian sailors simply slept on the flight deck and waited for repairs to be sent from the Mainland.The Australian Defense Ministry said the ship was gradually returning to normal, with communications, air conditioning, ventilation and food service systems returning to normal and local maintenance personnel arriving.Others later told the ABC that the Adelaide could not be moved and many problems could not be resolved.Speaking to SBS on February 2, Mr Dutton added to evidence that something was wrong with the ship.ABC also revealed on February 1 that 23 COVID-19 positive cases had been detected before the Adelaide arrived in Tongan waters, and the number of cases on board had reached 70 by February 1 local time.In an email to THE ABC, Adelaide’s captain, Stuart Waters, said living conditions on board were “uncomfortable”.There is nothing wrong with Australia providing humanitarian aid to Tonga.After all, Australia is the largest country in Oceania and relatively strong.But the problem is, from its rescue since the emergence of all kinds of problems can be seen, whether it is its military system, or the ability to fight the epidemic, there are loopholes.Australia to tonga carrying humanitarian aid sent to the cabin is not only a “Adelaide”, after the January 21 local time, an Australian defense official has revealed that in carrying humanitarian supplies a plane to tonga, detect the crew of the new champions positive, as a result, the plane had to turn back.What does this show?Should we wait until the test results are available before deciding whether to fly to Tonga, given the necessary quarantine measures?Is there something wrong with the management process when the plane takes off and then learns from the test report that someone on the flight is positive and calls to return?The Adelaide, which had infected more than 70 people as of February 1st, could stay in Tonga, since the flight with the positive case was due to return?Dutton still talking about it doesn’t affect the rescue?3 The real concern is – given the level of organisation and management of the Australian military, does it want to control nuclear submarines?On September 16, 2021, the Australian capital Canberra, Australia’s prime minister, Morrison in the house of parliament and President Joe biden, British prime minister, Boris Johnson, video meeting, discuss a AUKUS in September of 2021, Australia’s prime minister, Morrison, in with the American President Joe biden, Britain’s prime minister, Johnson after the video meeting,The three parties signed the “AUCUS” agreement.Meanwhile, the United States and Britain have announced plans to provide Australia with nuclear submarine technology.Australia claims to have eight nuclear submarines.As Wang Xining, China’s charge d ‘affaires in Australia, noted in an article in Guardian Australia in November 2021: “Australia was once seen as a follower, supporter of international institutions and systems, and a lover of peace after The second World War.However, The AUCUS agreement between Australia and the US and the UK requires Australia to have nuclear submarines that can launch long-range attacks against distant targets. China is concerned about this, but the Australian people are more concerned about it!”Looking at the state of the “Adelaide”, Australians should be worried!
