A US Navy Los Angeles class attack submarine has visited Faslane in a routine stop-off.
The submarine, which is likely to be the USS Pittsburgh, arrived at Her Majesty’s Naval Base Clyde in Scotland, United Kingdom earlier this week.
The visit, common between the US and UK, has been described as routine. Only recently the USS New Mexico visited the base which is home to the United Kingdoms nuclear missile and hunter killer submarine fleets.
The Los Angeles class is a class of nuclear-powered fast attack submarines in service with the United States Navy and they represent two generations and close to half a century of the US Navy’s attack submarine fleet. As of 2017, 36 of the class are still in commission and 26 retired from service.
