Reposting.

The names available would be Success, Supply and Sirus. Protector is an outside chance. Protector was going to be the Australian designed and built AOR we were going to have before we decided to go with the Durance class Success.

Always liked the look of this design.

Can never be sure, but I have heard the names "SUPPLY" for the first one and "SIRIUS" for the second (after the old SIRIUS is paid off). These are the two most popular names as they were the two warships of the First Fleet in 1788. It will all come out in good time I suppose.
