One of the British Navy’s Vanguard-class nuclear submarines was forced to abort a top secret mission after it sustained fire damage, according to a Sunday article published by The Sun.

According to the outlet’s sources, it took the efforts of the entire 130-plus crew, including many who were off-duty, to put out an electrical fire aboard the HMS Victorious, which was carrying Trident 2 nuclear ICBMs at the time of the incident.

While the fire was reportedly contained relatively quickly, the emergency situation declared by the ship’s captain forced the ship to shoot to the surface at an undisclosed location in the North Atlantic to vent out toxic fumes.

Nevertheless, the damage caused by the fire prompted the submarine’s captain to abandon an unspecified top secret mission and order the vessel to return to base at HMNB Clyde in Faslane, Scotland.

The Sun noted that the 30-year-old vessel, which cost over $3 billion, is one of the Royal Navy’s four non-stop nuclear deterrent patrols.

A Royal Navy spokesperson told the paper that the incident has not affected the continuous at-sea deterrent, but declined to provide any further details on submarine operations.

Secret mission to finish off the one line untouched from their previous mission. Probably got caught and had to hightail it out of the area and overheated their electrical system until they reached “safe waters:. Good going Russia. Defend your yard

The earlier version was more successful during its missions.

The west is joking around with 400-500 ton nuclear devices, while Russia can offer 1.000.000 tons bombs, just a sarcastic reminder?
