    Cynic that I am... ...Overpaint "Astute" with "Ambush", make a fuss about it putting to sea and everybody thinks that we've got two subs. £1bn goes back into the Treasury, leaving £200m for back-handers, and everybody's happy.

    got me thinking now - all that rust on the t45's when they hand them over, then hide them all over the world where it cant be proven.
     
  7. Meanwhile as to the Sub... and remain undetected in almost all circumstances... I must learn Russian or American and ask for their opinions.
     

  8. As long as she stays away from sandbars, she'll be fine.
     
  9. Anyone know the last time a Sub fired a shot in anger?

    Let's not be rude. Conqueror killed more Argentinians than the army, RM, RAF and the rest of the RN did combined, all in less than an hour and all whilst having a nice cup of tea and a biscuit.

    Submarines - the uberfarts of the ocean - silent and deadly

  13. A least the MoD RSS feed for the Navy actually tells real stories, not the RAF pish of 'SAC gets stuck up tree' or 'RAF Regt get caught working'.

  14. No need. Someone on here will be along shortly to tell you that Type 23s can track any sub.
