HMS Agincourt (S125)

The seventh and final Astute Class nuclear-powered submarine is due to enter the Royal Navy fleet in due course...


In May 2018 it was announced that the Ministry of Defence had signed a £1.5 billion contract with BAE Systems for the seventh Astute Class hunter-killer submarine to be built in Barrow-in-Furness, Cumbria.

The submarine will be the 6th vessel in Royal Navy history to be named after the Battle of Agincourt of 1415, and as well as being a boost for the armed forces will be essential in supporting 8,000 BAE System‘s jobs at Barrow and further afield.
