Britain’s Nuclear Deterrant At Risk

(Before It's News)

A serious fault has been reported in the reactor of a British submarine. Over half of the Brit’s nuclear subs are out of commission now.

Experts warned the fault in the reactor of HMS Trenchant was so serious that the Trafalgar fleet may never sail again. The fracture is being treated as an “irreparable generic fault” that will prevent it from being able to carry out normal duties.

It means Britain may be forced to beg for international support in protecting our four Vanguard submarines, which carry Britain’s Trident nuclear deterrent. 

Britain deploys seven SSN nuclear-powered hunter-killers. Last week it was revealed that the four older Trafalgar-class submarines, Trenchant, Torbay, Triumph and Talent, were out of action due to repairs and maintenance.

    Why don’t you tell us about Sellafield, that’d be a nice reminder.

    Smells more like a fukin set up

    we have no decent sub hunter planes anymore

    we have a pissy little army

    we have a pissy little navy

    and now we have hardly any subs

    meanwhile, the Fourth Reich marches on :twisted:
