Other companies are believed to have entered the competition to replace the ageing Bradley armoured fighting vehicles BAE originally built.
The UK’s largest defence contractor said it has given Charles Woodburn, 50, a base salary increase of more than £100,000 and awarded him an additional share package worth £2m to ensure he stayed on at the firm.
Construction of the new Dreadnought class of submarines which will provide the UK’s nuclear deterrent got off to a bad start when it began in 2016. The press were transported to BAE Systems’ shipyard at Barrow-in-Furness in Cumbria to record what should have been a triumphant moment for British industry as manufacturing began on the £41bn project. Instead it turned into something of a farce. Although then-Defence Secretary Sir Michael Fallon did get a cheer from workers in the chilly fabrication hall as he pushed the button to ceremonially cut the first steel that would go into the first of the four 17,000-tonne vessels, the moment had been overtaken by events. The story had broken just hours before that the steel plate being sliced up in a shower of sparks had come from France. It was an embarrassing revelation as UK steelmakers were then in the middle of an existential crisis as they buckled under a flood of imports. Perhaps, then, it’s no wonder little has been heard of the Dreadnought programme since.
