The Astute class submarine is the latest in the British Royal Navy fleet and was first launched in 2007. This huge submarine has an appearance similar to a whale. It is nuclear-powered, not requiring a single refuel over its 25-year lifetime, although it is not unique in this regard. The Astute class submarine is built by BAE Systems Maritime in Barrow-in-Furness on the northwest coast of Britain.  The submarines cost about $2.4 billion (USD) each. The Astute class consists of attack submarines, in contrast to the ballistic missile submarines of the Vanguard class.
