HMS Talent arrives at HM Naval Base Clyde

9th August 2019 - 16:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


The Royal Navy’s HMS Talent has arrived at its new home port at HM Naval Base Clyde.

The Trafalgar-class attack submarine has operated from HM Naval Base Devonport for nearly three decades but has now relocated to Clyde as part of the site’s transformation into the Submarine Centre of Specialisation.

The vessel completed a multi-million pound refit at Devonport in June last year, and now joins Astute-class submarines HMS Astute, HMS Ambush, HMS Artful, and Vanguard-class boats HMS Vanguard, HMS Victorious, HMS Vigilant and HMS Vengeance as part of the Faslane Flotilla at Clyde.

HM Naval Base Clyde will be home to all of the UK’s submarines by 2020. The base, which includes the port at Faslane and RNAD Coulport, is home to the UK’s strategic nuclear deterrent, mine counter-measures vessels and patrol boats.  It is also home to 43 Commando Fleet Protection Group Royal Marines, the First Mine Countermeasures Squadron, Flag Officer Sea Training North and Northern Diving Group.
