The second UK SSBN of the Dreadnought class was named today, HMS Vigilant. HMS DreadnoughtHMS Vigilant HMS ?????HMS ?????
Also fuck the mods.
>>39923718thats a US meme, stay in your lane
>>39923709why do they put solar roof tiles on submarines?
>>39923709what the fuck there's already a Vigilant in the Vanguard class.The naming of this whole class is going to be fucking garbage
>>39923742>>39923779But its a UK sub, not German or Russian....
>>39923799>>39923709OP here. I fucked up, it's Valiant not Vigilant
>>39923709Warspite and Renown
>>39923709So they started construction on the Dreadnought back in 2016, but it won't enter service until the 2030s? Are they really gonna build this thing for fifteen years?
I've posted before as to how I work up at BiF building these beasts. A few of us have a sweepstake on the go as to the names, I have HMS Revenge as my choice.
>>39923934HMS garden hoe
>>39923947They started construction of some long lead parts in 2016, the first will enter service in 2028, it will probably be complete around 2025/6 and have a long period of first of class trials.
>>39923948Revenge would be a good one.
Why have the RN been making such a big deal about vessel names recently?
HMS Warspite and HMS Conqueror. sad that they left the D names behind because i thought they would be: Dreadnought, Devastation, Defiance, Diligent
>>39923991Easy Twitter PR.
>>39923991partially timing, partially because you cant cancel ships that have been named after a place where voters live aha
>>39923948If I hear anything in main building I'll let you know
>>39923948What do you do
HMS Diana's Revenge
>>39923811They probably don't mean Russian or German submarines since it says HMS and Caliphate/Muhammad.
>>39923995oh shit Devastation would have been primo
>>39923709UK subs should be named after national heroes and treasures, therefore I propose that the next UK boomer ought to be named HMS Holly"Droopy Swingers"Willoughby.
HMS Donald Trump
>>39925955No, a garbage scow crewed by Russians is SS Donald Trump.
>>39923709HMS MulticultHMS Eurocuck
>>39925253don't you dare talk about holly willybooby
>>39925244almost as good as HMS Vengeance
>>39923709coollet me know when they become a relevant super power then I might care
>>39926321aww did the UK having nuclear weapons make you upset? there there big baby, no need to cry.
>>39923995I thought the British were pretty strict with the alliteration for their class names.Warspite would be awesome. Hood would be too, but that name may be one of the few the Royal Navy never uses again.
>>39925955To make up for the fact that there is a US destroyer named USS Winston Churchill?
>>39926321>Everyone who doesnt waste all their taxmoney on the military is irrelevant!!!!Thats vatniktier logics there anon
HMS TV LicenseHMS KamiHMS SpoonHMS CuckingtonHMS DentistHMS part & parcelHMS Groomer
>>39926673Dont forget HMS Bikewheel anon
>>39926673HMS DoubtfulHMS DubiousHMS SpitefulHMS InflectionHMS Infectious
>>39926662Much better to give that money to immigrants
>>39926750Or you know... things that actually benefit the population since there is no credible military threat to the british people. Regarding immigrants Ill gladly bet that Britain is still a lot whiter then whatever slavic hellhole you crawled out of
>>39926787You say that but Germany is enslaving two thirds of Europe under their army again so
>>39926440>>39926662I’m mainly just projecting because I know my (and every other western) country will soon suffer the same fatesad to see such large empires reduced to nothing all over muh feels
>>39926845>Shit that will never happen: The post
>>39926855At least you admit it. Thats rare on a board filled with repressed homosexuals and literal autists
>>39926855It's honestly not anything like /pol/ or tabloids portray it as. they feed on forced outrage. It's 4% of the population that are muslim and the overwhelming majority are pretty lax about it. It's just the 200 or so people near Luton that make a lot of noise and get a lot of attention. Much like westboro baptist in the US.
>>39923709HMS English minority in LondonAndHMS demographic replacement in one generation
>>39923709HMS Mincing Ninny
>>39923948Revenge is very appropriate for a boomer.Retribution and such also.
HMS Submariny McSubmarineFace
>>39923787Those aren't solar cells, those are launch doors for ICBMs.
>>39926845This is getting out of hand, the amount of heads we could live in rent free is too high at this point. Seriously, find something else to obsess over. It'll improve your mental health.
>>39926321I feel like anyone who has working SSBNs is relevant in at least some capacity.
>>39923709HMS ahmed the slasher is back in London
>>39923787>why do they put solar roof tiles on submarines?Those are actually doors to the Loo. So when they get underwater, they flush out all of the Limey shit. There are 120 toilets and they are always busy. Day and night.Hey...if you are going to eat like a Tiger, you are going to shit like a Tiger.
Still not as good as Chinese submarines.
>>39926321Our time as the Worlds most potent super power has passed for now, we'll leave that honour to our Grandchild. However, considering that we're just a tiny little island off the coast of Northern Europe we're not doing to badly.https://ukdefencejournal.org.uk/study-finds-uk-is-second-most-powerful-country-in-the-world/
>>39923947>>39923709Just how big are these things? You don't get a good idea from the surface, but it'll almost certainly be obsolete by the time it's completed, assuming they don't just cancel it five years into the project because it's taking literally longer than a carrier or battleship to build.
>>39929742>but it'll almost certainly be obsolete by the time it's completed,Why?
>>39930440Because he is uninformed
>>39923709HMS MohammadHMS Islam
HMS Sadiq Khan
>>39923755I like it, though there's an irony in naming her when she's designed to sink.
>>39931347A punchable face to rival Netanyahu or Sheldon.
>>39931389HMS LondonabadHMS Britanistan
>>39923709>HMS Dreadnoughtmore like HMS Dreadful
