HMS Duke of Wellington

The nuclear submarine HMS Duke of Wellington at HMNB Holy Loch.

The Duke-class nuclear attack submarines were a class of nuclear powered fast attack submarines in service in the Royal Navy and Royal Canadian Navy from the mid-1960s to the mid 1980s. They would be replaced by the Trafalgar-class in the 1980s. A total of thirteen submarines were built, ten for the Royal Navy and three for the Royal Canadian Navy. The Canadian purchase of the Duke-class occurred after submarines of the APN were discovered transiting the Northwest Passage without authorization.
