    Faulty Oil Pump Ties Up HMS Astute; D5 Follow-on Won't Fit!

    The British submarine force, already under fire for cost overruns and the (very)late delivery of HMS Astute, surely don't need more bad news, but, this provides some.

    At the same time, the follow-on to the D5 SLBM looks like it may have some size problems in British SSBN's. Of course, much of this is due to different life spans for British SSBN's and the US SSBN force, and may be much ado about nothing.
