HMS Astute launch

#4
Omg I'd love it if I passed for the Submarines and got to serve on it one day!

But I'm guessing it'll probably be for Submariners who've served a minimum 10 years or something!

There will be strong interest in the stats of this ' boat ' in many parts of the globe. I can only imagine what life underwater will be like with so many nations increasing their submarine fleets , nukes , with awesome power . The use of a nuclear fleet achieves a great advantage over any missile bases of a fixed nature and on land . With the speed and mobility the nukes can be anywhere so everybody wants them. Problem will be with so many and not knowing who's who . Probably make the old ' sneakies 'look like sunday school outings. Will the new ' boats ' be ( or are they ) detectable by satellite I wonder. What puzzles me though is the way all this info is made public , what happened to security . One thing for sure the new breed of submariners will have to be very strong psychologically I reckon so will the entry tests be more thorough . Hard to imagine for an old D/E bloke .

If I can get Pusser to pay for a duty trip home for me from Fassers, I'll gladly go!
Be quick or, by the time you get there, Desmond Browne might well have sold it to some S. American buyer or other
