Apparently the “advantage” the Astute has over the French Suffren class |¬¶|
is the Royal Navy Astute has a smaller, higher potency reactor. |¦|
I practise, the Astute reactor is fueled for the life of the submarine.
The French submarines are expected to be taken out of service and refuelled a couple of times during their working life. |¦|
This may mean that the French subs have a slightly extended overall life |¦|
but they will have one or two long fuel re-fits.
With the French subs, you will need more subs to achieve the same coverage.
So far, none of the Suffren class are on active duty, they still rely on the Rubis class, |¦|
of which only four are active.
