HMS Triumph's role

HMS Triumph is a nuclear-powered hunter-killer submarine. Her role is extremely varied, taking in everything from tactical strike to fleet protection to intelligence gathering.

Commissioned in 1991, HMS Triumph has participated in the war in Afghanistan and Operation Ellamy in Libya. In 1993 she sailed to Australia, travelling 41,000 miles unsupported – the longest solo deployment ever completed by a Royal Navy submarine.

Following a £300 million refuelling and refurbishment in 2005, HMS Triumph will be the last of the Trafalgar-class to be decommissioned in 2022.
