HMS Vanguard (1993) SSBN  (10th)


This HMS Vanguard is the tenth vessel to carry the name. The name ship of a class of four nuclear powered ballistic missile armed submarines. 

Built by Vickers Shipbuilders of Barrow-in-Furness, laid down 03-Sep-1986, launched 04-Mar-1992 and commissioned 14-Aug-1993.

Has two complete crews, the Port and Starboard crew, in order to spend the maximum amount of time at sea.

Basically she leaves port, vanishes and travels to her classified patrol area. On reaching station she relieves the previous patrol boat. Then in due course she is relieved by her successor, on which she returns to port, changes crew and prepares for her next patrol.

Little other fanfare accompanies the duties of a Ballistic Missile Submarine. 

In service Apr-2011.
