    No one believes that nonsense. Thales 2087 towed sonar is the most sensitive in the world and it can only detect a bus at 100km, this is from RN sources itself.

    And Rubis is an updated Cold War generation submarine. Barracuda will have all the technologies of Astute and with its later introduction, a few more.

    It seems Astute is turning out to be a fine boat , In recent exercise with USN Virginia class subs she performed very well against USN submarine.

    Baracuda is a smaller sub compared to Astute class it will likely carry lesser weapons
