Shang 407 Long March 7 http://cnair.top81.cn/sub/093-092.jpg New generation SSN 093/09III class to counter US carrier vessel battle groups in the west Pacific. This type was under development for more than 10 years and has limited Russian influences such as double hull design and a longer length than Type 091. It features a reliable pressurized water reactor, a new bow sonar and 3 flank sonar arrays on each side of the hull. Its noise level is reduced by an asymmetrical 7 blade skewed propeller and anechoic tiles. Displacement of Type 093 is estimated at 6,000 dived. It is expected to be able to fire advanced wire-guided torpedos and launch Anti Ship Msls. Its overall combat capability is comparable to US Los Angeles class SSNs. A total of 6 to 8 093 SSNs were projected. At least 3 093 types are deployed to Hong Sha naval base near Sanya, Hannan Island facing the South China Sea.
