Splendid arrival

Splendid arrival: The nuclear-powered attack submarine HMS Splendid arrived this month at Babcock’s Rosyth dockyard for a £10m, six-month refit in which it will get the ability to fire Tomahawk cruise missiles. A Swiftsure class submarine, Splendid will perform Britain’s first Tomahawk firing next year at the US Navy’s Point Mugu firing range.
