The Onslow is one of the 6 Oberons and it gave the Royal Australian Navy a formidable submarine force. The motto of the navy's submarine arm is "Strength, silence, surprise". The Oberons all have:

  • a diving chamber for Special Forces to leave the boat for covert operations
  • a gash ejector containing weighted rubbish (gash) bags. When ejected, the bags sink to the ocean floor so no debris floats to give away the submarine's position
  • soundproofing on all equipment to make Oberons one of the quietest class of submarines ever built.
