Submariners Role in the Falklands

Convincing proof of the value of submarines for intelligence gathering, among their many other roles. Are we still able to field five SSNs for a single mission leaving sufficient to perform other critical tasks?

A rhetorical question of course - NO! We are currently able (supported) to supply 4 SSNs (worked up and ready to go) in total. This leads us to the question of how many Astute Class do we need? To guarantee an availability of 4 you need to have 8 (by the time Astute itself is due it's 1st LOP).

Sounds like what we were told at the time
