  • Up to March 2021, the MOD has drawn £865 million of the Treasury-held £10Bn contingency funding for The Dreadnought submarine project. (Much of this has been sensibly invested to avoid delays and additional expenses in future by supporting key suppliers)
  • The RN will conduct a SINKEX later this year (First for 18 years). Will be used to prove various anti-shipping capabilities. Possibly ex-HMS Bristol or Monmouth will be the target. (Library photo)

Sea Venom maybe one of the weapons test-fired at the multi national SINKEX planned for later this year.

Kalibr land attack missile being loaded into a Russian Kilo class submarine.

🇺🇸US Defence Intelligence agency assess that less than 40% of 🇷🇺Russian missiles fired during the war in 🇺🇦Ukraine have hit their intended targets. 

20-30% fail to launch or crash in flight and many miss aiming points.
