express– Production has begun on HMS Venturer, the first of the UK’s five new Type 31 frigates. Named after the World War 2 submarine which made history by torpedoing a U-boat while both were submerged, the £1.25billion vessels are designed to change roles to catch the enemy off guard. Equipment such as underwater mine-hunting drones, air defence missiles, and disaster relief stores will be transported by the ships in specially built containers.
