HMS Agamemnon (S123)

HMS Agamemnon is the sixth of the Astute Class nuclear-powered fleet submarines. Together with her sister vessels, she will be one of the most advanced submarines ever constructed.


HMS Agamemnon is still under construction, but once completed she will carry out a number of important roles, from covert surveillance to tactical strike. Her weaponry will include the Spearfish heavyweight torpedo and the fearsome Tomahawk Block IV land-attack missile, which has a range of some 1,000 miles.

Named for the ancient Greek king Agamemnon, this Astute-class nuclear-powered submarine will more than live up to her legendary namesake.
