According to, China will adopt the following six new technologies in its 095 attack nuclear submarines: new water injection propulsion, super strong steel, mixed single and double-hull structure, new comprehensive vibration reduction floating raft and vertical launch tube for cruise missile.
The website says that the new submarine has to have an underwater speed not less than 33 knots, silent cruise speed not less than 18 knots, and maximum submerging depth not less than 600 meters.
That means the submarine is better than US Virginia-class and comparable to US Seawolf-class attack nuclear submarine.
