HMS Agamemnon's role

HMS Agamemnon is still under construction, but once completed she will carry out a number of important roles, from covert surveillance to tactical strike. Her weaponry will include the Spearfish heavyweight torpedo and the fearsome Tomahawk Block IV land-attack missile, which has a range of some 1,000 miles.

Named for the ancient Greek king Agamemnon, this Astute-class nuclear-powered submarine will more than live up to her legendary namesake.
