|A nuclear submarine in the Firth of Clyde in Scotland.
The UK's fleet of 4 nuclear submarines are based at Faslane near Glasgow.
They are called Vanguard, Vanquish, Victorious and Vengance and were built at Vickers in Barrow-in-Furness.
They are equipped with Trident nuclear ballistic missiles and are capable of going round the world 40 times without refueling.
There are 135 crew on board and are powered by a Rolls-Royce nuclear reactor. As an ex-Rolls-Royce aero-engineer it was the first time I had seen one of our subs.|

It's a very interesting shot.
Interesting image with good details despite the distance.
