The tragedy occurred in the Atlantic Ocean. All this happened when one of the four submarines of the British Royal Navy sank in the “dangerous depths of the sea” as a result of a technical failure of the meter, according to the national media The Times.
At that moment the alarms started and the giant Vanguard-class ship sank with its 140 crew on board in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean.
The cause of the sinking was the failure of one of the meters, which stopped working properly when the submarine was on patrol. This incident caused the wrong information to reach those responsible, causing them to believe that the submarine descended correctly when in fact it did so in a completely uncontrolled manner.

But they soon realized that the situation was not as good as the tool indicated. And only thanks to the second meter located in the rear area, the engineers were able to verify that they had no control of the submarine, so they raised the alarm.
As reported by The Sun, “the submarine is still at the depth where we know it can operate, but if it needs to reach that depth, the entire crew will be thrown into action stations.”
It is worth noting that the United Kingdom has, since 1969, fleets of nuclear-armed submarines patrolling the oceans on a rotating basis. Currently, the Royal Navy has four Vanguard ships dedicated to this role. As reported by government sources years ago, this practice is aimed at controlling the government’s oceans.
After the incident, a Royal Navy spokesman assured that British submarines “continue to fulfill their commitments, deploying around the world on operations, protecting national interests and keeping us and our allies safe and secure.” safe.”
