Capable of firing Spearfish torpedoes and Tomahawk cruise missiles from their five torpedo tubes, they are equipped with Bow, Flank, Intercept and Towed Array Sonar, plus attack and search periscopes.
One of the class was the first Royal Navy submarine to fire a cruise missile during the former Yugoslavia conflict, and also in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars.
The class has a displacement of 5200 tones (dived), Length 85.4m, Beam 9.8m and a top speed in excess of 30 knots (dived)."
