London decided to build the seventh Astute-class submarine

36
The British government decided to build the seventh Astute-class submarines of the Astute type with rocket and torpedo weapons, reports Look.




In February, the Ministry of Defense announced its intention to abandon the construction of data radia ships saving money.

According to the Financial Times, the cost of the contract with the British company BAE Systems for the creation of the boat amounted to 1,5 billion pounds ($ 2 billion).

Currently, three Astute submarines are in service with the British fleet, construction of three more ships is ongoing.

In addition, London provides more than 900 million pounds for the creation of a Dreadnought-type submarine equipped with Trident missiles.

Multibillion-dollar investment in nuclear submarines testifies to our unshakable commitment to ensuring the safety of the United Kingdom in the face of increasing threats,
said the head of the military department Gavin Williamson.

      No, they are preparing to escape if necessary ... When their island is washed away and the planes are demolished, and the tunnel, along with underground shelters, is distorted and destroyed - only on a solid submarine can you escape and sit out under water for a long time until the dust settles .... .

      Now it turns out that they will not leave the docks ....

      Most of the UK Navy's multi-purpose submarines are out of order, with information kept secret from Prime Minister Theresa May. This was reported on February 10 by The Sun newspaper, citing sources close to the situation.

      “No one provides true information about this shame,” the source quoted the newspaper as saying that there weren’t any of the seven multipurpose submarines like Trafalgar and Astute armed with Tomahawk cruise missiles on alert.

      According to The Sun, five submarines, including one Astute class, are currently under maintenance or awaiting it after troubleshooting. Another latest Ambush nuclear submarine is undergoing repairs after it collided with a tanker in Gibraltar in December 2016. Only one Astute-class submarine is in the sea for testing after maintenance, but it will not be back in service soon.

        In my childhood, only the journal Science and Life was. But what about all sorts of Husky, Ash-tree, yes, we are on the way, a cruise torpedo and a nuclear engine, but hypersuppersonics?

        Without unnecessary cheers-patriotism, but the British are really standing all the time for repairs. And our men are serving.! just a fact. So that they will have at least twenty-eight Astute, they will not show their nose beyond the English Channel.

          Most serve at the piers. In regular patrols
          almost only Americans. The rest either have no money or breakdown.

          You draw more such beautiful pictures, you’d better sleep. But really look at things, we have the same condition. Some are being repaired / modernized, others are being written off. They have 3 astutes, we have 1 ash. And 4 Wangard, against 2 Boreans, only the difference, the Tridents always fly, and the Mace on holidays. True, there are Dolphins and Squids, but they are written off slowly. And who is now funny?
          PS: What is the status of the US nuclear submarines? Plus frogs? But we will show them anyway!

        Collision of a British nuclear submarine Ambush with a tanker
        July 22nd, 2016
        According to an official report by the Royal Navy of Great Britain, on July 20, 2016, at about 13.30 local time, the British atomic multipurpose submarine S 120 Ambush (the second in a series of Astute type, in service since 2013), being at periscope depth, flocked in the Gibraltar region in international waters with the "merchant ship" and received serious damage to the fence retractable devices. None of the crew were injured. The boat after the collision at about 21.00 p.m. arrived in Gibraltar, where it is examining the damage.

    They will not pull, or bring the two previous ones out of operation under the discussion in the oldest parliament in the world that one new one is better than seventeen old ones. All the same, they are not pulling the fleet (just like we are, by the way), and are puffing exactly the same. But without him we still pull, and the British - the seams! Iceland number 2!

      England has one of the most balanced fleets in the world! The best anti-aircraft destroyers, 2 aircraft carriers, very good frigates type 23/26, nuclear submarine fleet. Atomic strategists. Who else has such a thing in NATO? 2nd, after the USA

        Completely with You I agree, colleague. There is a fleet, and quite decent (well, how could an empire be without it), but the army is gone. With this balance, you can capture the same Falklands over and over again. To develop the captured land in this second fleet after the United States - as there was no one, no one was added. By the way, for training the commander of these fleets (including the new-old No. 2): there are many uninhabited islands in general, of which - to hell (do not believe GPS)!
        PS And if they still get together and build the seventh nuclear submarine, then they will write off three nuclear submarines and 2 more diesel submarines in pursuit, because the Lords of the Admiralty can count money, and under any violinists billions of pounds are not going to throw.
