Royal Navy’s new £1.25bn ‘Swiss Army knife’ military ships to give UK strategic advantage

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.
