The Era of the Astute Approaches
Three Astute submarines sit in a giant construction hall alongside one another, destined for the sea. HMS Anson, the fifth now joins her two sisters as they undergo completion for service in the Royal Navy.
Artful and Audacious flank her. The former of which will launch early this year to join HMS Astute and HMS Ambush (Possibly one of the most appropriately named submarines ever) that are already in service.
The seven Astute classes are of the top tier in the world’s submarines and mark over a decade of development. They have gone up against the world’s leading submarine, the US Virginia class and come away as equals. Part of it stemming from their world beating sonar and being one of only two classes of submarine to combine the advantages of a diesel electric submarine with nuclear propulsion.
Once in service they will carry out sea and land attack missions, confident in the knowledge that even in the foreseeable future, no country has anything on the cards yet that could match Astute or Virginia in their ability.
