Royal Navy Submarine HMS Triumph Enters HMNB Clyde
14 May 2013|

Trafalgar Class submarine SSN (Ship Submersible Nuclear) HMS Triumph, glides into HM Naval Base Clyde in the early morning sun following a patrol.

The Triumph of today is somewhat different from her predecessors. Built by VSEL at Barrow-in-Furness, she was commissioned in October 1991 and is the seventh and last of the Trafalgar class. Since commissioning, the submarine has completed a number of notable patrols from the North Atlantic to the Far East.

Between 2005 and 2009, Triumph went through a long overhaul period to refuel the reactor, complete essential maintenance and repairs. During this long overhaul period, the vessel’s equipment and sensors were upgraded to make her one of the most potent and advanced submarines in the flotilla.
