The Astute-class submarine is the latest in the British Royal Navy fleet, and was first launched in 2007.  This huge submarine has an appearance similiar to a whale, and is nuclear-powered, not requiring a single refuel over its 25-year lifetime, although it is not unique in this regard.  The Astute-class submarine is built by BAE Systems Maritime in Barrow-in-Furness, on the northwest coast of Britain.

The submarines cost about $2.4 billion U.S. dollars each. The Astute class consists of attack submarines, in contrast to the ballistic missile submarines of the Vanguard class.
