NATO Loads It’s Deadly Weapon After Putin’s Threat(PHOTOS)
Royal Navy’s new £1bn submarine loaded with deadly Tomahawk cruise missiles in warning to Putin after his threat to Nato
THE Royal Navy’s new £1billion pound nuclear submarine was pictured being loaded with a deadly Tomahawk missile as Britain issued a fresh warning to Vladimir Putin.
HMS Audacious, which can carry rockets capable of hitting targets some 745 miles away, was spotted off the coast of Gibraltar in what appeared to be a call to arms.
Missiles were spotted being loaded in the British submarine.
The massive vessel is currently docked in Gibraltar amid fresh threats to the West.

The new vessel was first launched in 2017 and is said to carry 38 weapons in six 21 inch torpedoes with state of the art fibre optic control technology to match.
The Sun previously reported that more than 39,000 acoustic tiles mask the vessel’s sonar signature, meaning she slips through the seas with less noise than a baby dolphin.
The 7,400-tonne BAE Systems-built sub is the fourth of seven Astute class submarines and can circumnavigate the entire globe without surfacing.
And it’s recent sighting off the Iberian coast is expected to be a tell-tale sign that the UK, and its Nato allies, are bolstering its flanks amid fears that the war in Ukraine could spiral into a wider conflict.
