HM Submarine Churchill visit to Tromso 1985

HMS Churchill was the first of three Churchill-class  nuclear fleet submarines that served with the Royal Navy.

Churchill was chosen to trial the first full-size submarine propulsor. Trials of a high-speed unit were followed by further trials with a low-speed unit, and these were successful enough for the same propulsion to be fitted in the rest of the class.Later British submarine classes also featured the pump jet, although first-of-class vessels Swiftsure and Trafalgar were fitted with propellers at build.
