‘BOMBER’

Description

Commissioned by the Submarine Service.

A Vanguard Class submarine returns to HM Naval Base Clyde following a lengthy patrol.

Known as Operation Relentless, at least one Royal Navy ballistic submarine has been patrolling the world’s oceans, unseen and undetected, since April 1969. This continuous at-sea deterrent (CASD) is the longest sustained military operation ever undertaken by the UK. Vanguard is a class of nuclear-powered ballistic missile submarine in service with the Royal Navy and includes four boats: HMS Vanguard, Victorious, Vigilant and Vengeance. Introduced in 1994 as part of the Trident nuclear programme, the Vanguard Class submarines are colloquially known within the flotilla as ‘Bombers’.
