Description

The Type 039 (NATO reporting name: Song class) is the diesel-electric submarine of the PLA Navy (PLAN). At least 16 hulls have been delivered to the PLA Navy since 1994. 

The first-of-class of the Type 039 submarine No.320 was launched 1994 at Wuchang Shipyard, and started sea trials in August 1995. However, the submarine was not fully operational until 1999 due to serious design flaws, including unsatisfactory underwater performance and noise level. After some major redesign work, a modified Type 039G variant (No.324) entered the service in April 2001.

Description

The Kilo class is the NATO reporting name for a military diesel-electric submarine that is made in Russia. The original version of the vessels were designated Project 877 Paltus in Russia. There is also a more advanced version, designated as Improved Kilo in the west, and Project 636 Varshavyanka in Russia. 

The boats are mainly intended for anti-shipping and anti-submarine operations in relatively shallow waters. Original Project 877 boats are equipped with Rubikon MGK-400 sonar system, which includes a mine detection and avoidance sonar MG-519 Arfa. Newer Project 636 boats are equipped with improved MGK-400EM, with MG-519 Afra also upgraded to MG-519EM. The improved sonar systems have reduced the number of operators needed by sharing the same console via automation. Project 636, sometimes called The Black Hole by the US Navy for its uncanny ability to disappear, is thought to be one of the quietest diesel-electric submarine classes in the world.
