GENICHESK. TAVRIA. In January, Britain conducted a launch of a Trident 2 ballistic missile, but due to some "anomaly" the projectile eventually fell into the sea. Moreover, it fell near the submarine that launched it. This is reported by The Financial Times.

This information was shared by the Ministry of Defense of Great Britain yesterday, February 20. They did not explain the reasons for the "anomaly" for security reasons. However, they assured that the country's nuclear weapons remain "safe, secure and effective".

"However we are confident that the anomaly was event specific, and therefore there are no implications for the reliability of the wider Trident missile systems and stockpile," is stated in the article.

This is the second time Britain has failed a Trident missile test. In 2016, it happened because of a problem with data collection. This forced the military to send the missile into the water. It is reported that the last successful Trident launch was in 2012.

Earlier we reported that Europe is heavily dependent on U.S. military support. So, in order to fix that, EU countries have significantly increased spending on the military-industrial complex.
