HMS Vanguard

Postby Peter W » Wed Apr 27, 2011 2:08 pm

Hello all,

Does anyone have any pics of HMS Vanguard that they are willing to share preferably a side view of the tower and any drydock pics but all are welcome.

Does anyone know by how much the Jecobin Vanguard plans tower needs to be increased in size as I heard a rumour it is a touch small also any other little tweaks that need to be done.

All the best,

Peter.

I recognize many of those many pierside as being taken at Faslane. Especially the ones with the large dock building in the back. I like pulling in tin Faslane, Glasgow is a 45 minute train ride from Helensburg, and Dumbarton is right down the road.........Picturesque place, nice people, great fried foods..... :)
When surfaced, the bridge access hatch can be optionally open or shut, however, when submerged it is required to be shut. (Really a no s***t precaution from a procedure in use in the sub fleet today.)

Hello,

Just a bump to see if anyone can tell me if and by how much the Jecobin tower needs to be increased and also any other tweaks to the plans that can be made.

All the best,

Peter.

I've always considered that the Jecobin plans are pretty much on the money. You should be able to get the answers you need from the pictures I posted up. I've checked between the drawings and the pictures and it's pretty good.

Things like the propulsor are classified, so you'll never get a straight answer there, but everything else is on display.
