Astute – Newest Bristish Submarine

The Royal Navy’s biggest and most powerful attack submarine has arrived at Faslane on the Clyde.
Astute, which measures nearly 328ft (100m) from bow to stern, set sail from Barrow in Cumbria for its first sea trials on Tuesday.
The vessel can be armed with 38 torpedoes and missiles – more than any previous Royal Navy submarine.  It sailed into the Clyde and up the Gareloch to its new home at the Scottish naval base.

The BAE Systems-built vessel is due to go into full service next year.  It will be able to circumnavigate the entire globe underwater and advanced nuclear technology means that it will never need to be refuelled.
