​US Submarine arrives at Naval Base

An Ohio-class US submarine has arrived at the naval base today for what the MoD has described as a routine, scheduled visit. 

Ohio Class submarines are the largest ever built for the US navy, and the third largest class of submarines in the world. They are capable of carrying up to 24 trident missiles, and there are eighteen such active submarines in the US navy, each of them named after a US State.
