Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Bit of cours ethere is nothign, absolutely nothing about any defense contracts being part of the bail-out in there.

So it is a brazen lie.

That:

>The second boat, Pipinos, was officially launched in February 2007 and is at present going through Greek harbour acceptance trials in Piraeus.

On September 21, 2009 TKMS announced that the contract with the Greek Navy for all four submarines had been cancelled due to country's arrears of more than 520 million Euros. TKMS is now seeking arbitration to resolve the matter.[21][22]

On October 27, 2009 the Greek Ministry of Defence officially confirmed that they intend accepting the three boats built in Greece. The first-of-class boat built in Kiel will not be accepted, and will be offered for sale. Proceeds from the sale will be used to pay the debt to TKMS>

also shows that the squabbling about the quality of the submarines is rather pre crisis. And that th reamining orders are about submarines built in Greece.
