Royal Navy submarine set, V Class and T class,mint carded Royal Navy, S 790 Triang Minic ShipsThis is the Royal Navy submarine set. One Vanguard class and one Trafalgar class . From Tri-ang Minic Ships. They are mint and carded. Vanguard Class SSBN - The Vanguard Class Submarines were designed to deploy the Trident Missile system replacing the aging Resolution Class which deployed the Polaris Missile system, Britain's initial nuclear deterrent. The boats were based largely on the American Ohio Class the major difference being that the Vanguard Class was designed with 16 missile tubes instead of the 24 missile tubes of the Ohio Class boats.Twice as heavy and twenty metres longer the new Vanguard Class Submarines had many advantages over the Resolution Class including more space, with a fourth deck, and less crew due to increased automation. They also have improved sonar and carry the Spearfish torpedo. 15900 tons length 150 metres. Length 4.85 inches or 123mm Trafalgar Class SSN - Originally designed for Cold War operations in the Mediterranean and North Atlantic the Trafalgar Class design was a follow on from the successful Swiftsure Class but incorporated many improvements making them both faster and quieter. The hull of is covered by anechoic tiles to absorb sonar signals and noise reduction is achieved through the pump jet propulsion system which is a multi blade rotor turned by a jet of water that is quieter than a conventional propeller. The lead ship HMS Trafalgar was completed in 1983 before the pump jet propulsion system was ready and has a seven bladed propeller instead. Like previous British nuclear submarines the Trafalgar Class boats have a "teardrop hull", the fin has been strengthened and the hydroplanes can be retracted to allow the submarine to surface through ice. The principle role of these "hunter-killer" vessels is to attack ships and other submarines and in this capacity they could support and protect a convoy or taskforce. With the fitting of the Tomahawk cruise missile system they will also be capable of a land attack role. The Trafalgar Class are fitted with cameras and thermal imaging systems that allow them to be used in a surveillance role. 5208 tons Impressive and very detailed. 2.75 inches or 70mm£4.95 Add to cart
