The Swiftsure Class of six submarines were commissioned at regular intervals between 1972 and 1981 and the commissioning date for each boat is listed as follows. Due to the long period of time that has since elapsed, the unit cost of these submarines is no longer held centrally and could be provided only at disproportionate cost.
