 HMS Conqueror (S48) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
HMS Conqueror was a Churchill-class nuclear-powered submarine that served in the Royal Navy from 1971 to 1990.
As of 2005, she was the only nuclear-powered submarine to have engaged an enemy ship with torpedoes, sinking the cruiser ARA General Belgrano.
The basis for the decision was that the Royal Navy feared a pincer-style attack with Belgrano attacking from the south, and the Vienticinco de Mayo from the north.

At sea the paucity of British ships' anti-aircraft defences was demonstrated in the sinking of HMS Ardent on the 21st, HMS Antelope on the 23rd, and MV Atlantic Conveyor, with a vital cargo of helicopters, runway building equipment and tents on the 25th.
