8. NEW NUCLEAR SUB IS 'SLOW, LEAKY, RUSTY'
The Royal Navy's new hunter-killer submarine, HMS Astute, is being described as "slow, leaky and rusting", The Guardian reports. Astute, the first of seven planned new submarines costing £9.75bn, is so flawed it can't find the speed to keep up with an aircraft carrier. It has a "V8 engine with a Morris Minor gearbox", said one source.
