British navy has to take parts from some vessels to maintain others, especially submarines

Scotsman 1st Nov 2017, The Royal Navy is increasingly forced to strip parts from its vessels in
order to maintain other ships and submarines in the fleet, an investigation
has found. Equipment “cannibalisation” increased 49% from 2012 to 2017
and spending watchdog the National Audit Office (NAO) said budget cuts in
the last two years could have increased the need to move parts between
vessels and naval helicopters.

Nuclear-powered Astute-class hunter-killer
submarines, some of the most modern and advanced vessels in the Royal Navy,
experienced the highest level of cannibalisation in the fleet with 59
instances per boat on average.
