Pic of the Day – HMS Ambush Returns to HMNB Clyde

HMS Ambush, the second of the Royal Navy’s potent new Astute Class attack submarines, sailed into Her Majesty’s Naval Base Clyde today to begin sea trials. The 7,400 tonne submarine sailed from the shipyard in Barrow-in-Furness in Cumbria, where she was built, to HMNB Clyde in Scotland. The seven Astute Class boats planned for the Royal Navy are the most advanced and powerful attack submarines Britain has ever sent to sea. (Picture: LA(Phot) Stu Hill)
