Astute class submarine, British Royal Navy


THE TARGET - Terramentals aim to steal a British Royal Navy submarine, to destroy oil wells in the North Sea, by way of drawing attention to the manifold oil discharges, and their unlawful detention, as legitimate conservation protestors.





Don Campbell is the Chief Executive officer of Babcock, an MOD subcontractor, trusted to service and maintain the British Royal Navy's nuclear submarine fleet.


They have been under investigation for a number of years as to security leaks and a faulty servicing record against the fleet of Astute class nuclear submarines.


Procurement fraud is high on the agendas of the US and UK military. A certain amount is budgeted for, to get the job done, but when standards sink below the threshold where the reliable operation of peacekeeping weapons of war is involved, then questions will be asked. Knowing this, Don Campbell (no relation of the famous Sir Malcolm, or Donald Campbell, land and water speed record aces, though often remarked on), has taken extra steps to avoid the short cuts in servicing schedules being detected. Those lapses in servicing being cumulatively redirected to efficiency bonuses, as dividends and other remunerations.


The MOD contractor has recently bought a multi-million dollar property in the Bahamas, via several shell companies, sure in the knowledge that such transactions will be almost impossible to trace. The property not being in his name, in any event, to avoid drawing attention to himself, or questions being asked; but that of a homosexual lover which relationship he has kept a secret for many a year.


Campbell is aware of the oil leaks in the North Sea, having been briefed by Nick Johnson, and Sir Rodney Dunbar, not to report on hydrocarbons they may detect when servicing Royal Navy hulls. In return for which, they will not question increases in subcontractor billing costs.

In the John Storm series of ocean awareness adventures, extreme activists use their Predator HK to steal an Astute class submarine, belonging to the British Royal Navy. The anti global warming terrorists plan to steal US and Soviet submarines, as part of their agenda to prove the futility of all out thermonuclear annihilation. Using their own illegal, weapons against the perpetrators of what they see as crimes against humanity.


In this fictional John Storm adventure, the Astute submarine commandeered, develops radiation leaks, making the vessel dangerous to life in the ocean, and eventually, those submariners operating the vessel, adding to the list of complaints of the Terramentalists.
