You think thew UK is FINE without nukes...then get a cross bow.
CAN'T HAVE guns(You will BE Over run)
Not such a good economy(CROSSBOWS still might cost too much)
AND YOU ARE AN ISLAND SURROUNDED BY OCEAN....
Why would YOU need them?
Russia would have respected you as NEUTRAL...not.

LOL. Do these Tridents come with a money back guarantee? Interesting nonetheless.
We never seemed to have a capable and operational submarine fleet.
Head of Navy Capability Rear Admiral Jonathan Mead said while one or two of the current Collins Class submarines were expected to have substantial reworking, all six in the fleet would need to receive some form of upgrading....
Work on the Collins Class submarines began in the 1980s, as the Navy sought to replace its Oberon fleet.
The first vessel, HMAS Collins, was delivered in 1996 and it took a further seven years for the sixth boat to be delivered.
