Foreign media said the Chinese Navy is committed to develop new types of 095 nuclear submarines
data for: 094 (West, “Gem” class) ballistic missile submarine.
According to foreign reports, the Chinese 093 nuclear attack submarines have recently been found parked in the new naval base on Hainan Island. The official point of view, is a secret nuclear submarine, and few Chinese nuclear submarine into the sea, it is difficult to really distinguish the new nuclear submarines in service, not only after the water stop at the pier, waiting for the future. But now, 093 submarines obviously moved south, may have to move into the Indian Ocean.
Although there have been two 7000 tons displacement launched the 093, but in China it seems hard to impress the outside world. Expectations of the outside of the 094 not so high. 093 attack submarine noise considerably, and there are many kinds of small problems. This means that the future of China may only build two to three 093 attack submarines, they will put more resources into the next level of attack submarines, ~ ~ 095 R & D production.
