by Richard Scott

Two UK Royal Navy (RN) Trafalgar-class nuclear-powered attack submarines (SSNs) are to be extended in service by up to 18 months to cover gaps caused by delays to the replacement Astute-class programme.

A senior RN sources told Janes on 24 March that HMS Talent will now serve an addition year beyond her planned retirement date in 2021 and HMS Triumph will have to serve an additional 18 months beyond her previously 2022 out of service date.
