Astute-Class Fleet Submarine Emerges

Welcome to the water, Her Majesty’s Submarine Anson – the world’s most advanced hunter-killer.

The fifth Astute-class Fleet Submarine has emerged from the shed at BAE’s Barrow works – where she’s been constructed over the past decade – and carefully lowered into the water.

Anson is now conducting final trials, commissioning of systems and training ahead of a test dive in the dock, and then joining her four sisters up in Faslane.
