Royal Navy – newest sub runs aground

HMS Astute – the lead ship of the Royal Navy’s newest class of nuclear powered attack submarine (SSN), has run aground off the Scottish coast.

[to give some perspective – this would be the equivalent of the USS Virginia (the US Navy’s newest class of SSN’s) running aground right outside Norfolk, VA]

Not a good way to improve your career options in a rapidly shrinking military.
