Storbritanniens nya strategiska ubåtar av Dreadnought-klass


Recommended Posts

Storbritanniens nya strategiska ubåtar av Dreadnought-klass har börjat byggas i Barrow-in-Furness i Cumbria, nordvästra England.
De kommer att ha 12 kärnvapenmissiltuber för missiler av typ Lockheed Trident II D5 SLBMs till skillnad 

från USA:s Columbia-klass som kommer att ha 16 kärnvapenmissiltuber för missiler av typ Trident D5.
Fyra missiler placeras i en modul som designats av General Dynamics Electric Boat Corporation.

"The UK plans to replace the four Vanguard-class boats with three or four next-generation Dreadnought-class
boats are to be equipped with 12 missile launch tubes, but current UK plans call for each boat to carry eight
D-5 SLBMs, with the other four tubes not being used for SLBMs."

Den tredje ubåten i Dreadnought-klassen har fått sin "steel cutting ceremony". (Hur skall man översätta "steel cutting ceremony"?) Detta skedde på BAE Systems' varv i Barrow-in-Furness, Cumbria.
De fyra atomubåtarna Dreadnought, Valiant, Warspite och King George VI - skall ersätta Vanguard-klassens fyra ubåtar i början av 2030-talet.
