Here's something to file in the "know-a-guy-who-knows-a-guy" department:

Someone at my company involved in the ORCA YAG replacement programme says while he was at Victoria Shipyards he was told that they were expecting to build a total of 12 ORCAs, rather than the 6 (plus two optional) that was announced.  Has anyone heard anything about the number of ships changing?  It's possible there's a crossed wire in the transmission line here, but there may also be something in the works that hasn't made it out into the open yet.

I haven't heard anything specific WRT the Orcas in quite some time. With that in mind, working within the MOG 4 formation as a whole I would think someone would have mentioned something.

Notwithstanding, I can see them actually making 12 since they can't possibly meet the objective (MARS IV) they're slated to do without more hulls. Though let's not get started on that /different thread
