I agree, stick the rotting A Class boats in a corner of the Devonshire Hall, and buy the advanced Gotland Class, which cost the same as one F-35 jet. Don’t know if the builders at Barrow can be...

At a time when the Barrow yard is failing for whatever reason to turn out the Astute Class seemingly at a capable rate.
Why cannot the MoD look at the Gotland class of AIP submarines.

Unbelievable!
Someone advertises an Aircraft Carrier, and the question turns into a discussion about metrication, poles and perches!
No wonder the Royal Navy is going down the drain.

What about the Isles Class boats that were around in the 80’s.
I’m trying to think of a class as bad as the Bird Class. Depends how you classify
