HMS Talent completes LAMP

Nuclear attack submarine HMS Talent has been returned to the fleet on time following a 20 week maintenance period (LAMP - Long Assisted Maintenance Period). For the first time major work on the submarine's MG rotor and batteries was carried out while the submarine was berthed and not in dry dock as has happened before. This thus meant systems were still live while the systems were being worked on or replaced. Work was also carried out on the gearbox to fix a defect and some other updates. HMS Talent will be available again for deployment before Christmas.
