France’s President Francois Hollande has reaffirmed his commitment to nuclear arms.

Boldly going where no French head of state has gone for almost 40 years, Hollande took a three hour trip off the coast of Brittany on the submarine ‘Terrible’.

The last president to board a submarine was Valéry Giscard d’Estaing in 1974 – and Giscard d’Estaing’s vessel did not go underwater at the time.

Talking with a crew of around 100 men who had just returned from a 64-day mission, Hollande also watched a simulation of a missile launch and received a medal to commemorate the day.
