In: Foreign, Germany, Subs
One of the reasons why Portugal is so in Dept.
Question: Why do the Portuguese Navy needs something like that, when the country is bankrupt??
They need jobs, and proper goverment, not subs….
"Dept." = debt? They may be providing jobs/bring in income by providing protection Portugal's harbors. This is just my opinion. If the Portuguese gov. can say to a foreign exporter/importer "we have subs patrolling the harbors" then the weapon becomes an asset to the country's economy. A non-nuclear sub, like the Tridente, is not really a weapon that will go out to combat in war (unless needed).
Sorry I forgot, or bring in income by protecting a foreign country's harbor.
Wow, if I had a dollar for every mile of a stretch that explanation/hypothesis is, I could pay off whatever dept/debt the country of Portugal may be carrying on it governmental books and have enough left over to buy me one of them German subs.
im going to say ahead of time, im not a nazi, i despise nazis. but im pretty damn proud of my country, even if it still has strong ties to national socialist founded defense contractors.
