Ahhhhh, despite Celeon's "behind the scenes" efforts , the Astute class has found its way into the water... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/shady.gif

Celeon changes his strategy and tries to gain Britian's new sub-surface power for codeword "Beiber" http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/winky.gif

Any videos yet ? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Noooooo. That's the Italian way of doing things.

Messervy found out that the beach assault in Heiligendamm was actually a secret rehersal for "Fall Beiber".
However I see a problem that plagues the Wehr....pardon Bundeswehr with a persistance of an unpopular season - The Beach Defence.

Yes, the Iranians are such a peace-loving, non-nuclear, 99 luft-balloon nation, aren't they?

Perhaps they have noticed that Astute is designed to carry & deliver Special Forces...

Bah! Those verdammt Britischers! They've done it again! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Celeon do you have any interior shots of the Astute? You are the one with suprises.

I always wonder why British nuclear class submarines have a flat-top surfaces near the bow. This disctinctive feature makes the boat..somewhat ugly....imo.
