The latest and most modern submarine can go up to 25 years without refueling.

Yes you read that correct 25 years the submarine can go underwater without needing to refuel. I sure wouldn't want to be in a submarine for 25 years straight though.

The Submarine is the Astute which is as of now the largest, most heavily armed, stealthiest and most sophisticated submarine ever built for the Royal Navy.
