The Japanese Navy received the eleventh submarine type "Soryu"

The naval forces of Japan replenished with the eleventh diesel-electric submarine of the Soryu type. The ceremony was held on March 5, 2020 at the shipyard of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Corporation in Kobe.


Submarine "Oryu" transferred to the Japanese the fleet, is the eleventh in a series of twelve diesel-electric submarines of the Soryu class, which are under construction by two companies at once - Mitsubishi Heavy Industries and Kawasaki Heavy Industries. At the same time, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries is building odd submarines, and Kawasaki Heavy Industries is building even.

DEPL “Oryu” was laid in November 2015, launched in October 2018. The last submarine of the series, the Toru, was laid down in January 2017, launched in November 2019. Its delivery to the customer is scheduled for March 2021.

The length of the NPS is 84 m, width - 9,1 m, height - 10,5 m, draft - 8,4 m, surface / underwater displacement 2950 / 4100 t, Crew - 65 persons.

The boat is equipped with a main power plant consisting of two Kawasaki 12V 25 / 25SB diesel engines and four air-independent power plants (VNEU) V4-275R produced by Kawasaki Kockums. The maximum speed in a submerged position - 20 nodes, in the surface - 12.

Armament: six 533-mm torpedo tubes with torpedoes Type-89, Type-80 and UGM-84C Garpun. The submarine is also equipped with a PU for shooting false targets.

It is noted that “equipping with an air-independent power plant allows reducing the visibility of the boat for sonars and being under water for about 14 days, unlike 4-5 days for diesel-electric submarines without a VNEU”. The submarine is also equipped with automated systems and GUS, allowing to increase the efficiency of conducting reconnaissance.

      And then. They would also rename the forces of self-defense into the forces of an imminent attack. And everything would be tip-top.

      Judging by the Toyota Camry car, which I drive and which I am more than satisfied with, their submarines should also be on top.

      In total, according to the new "Guidelines for National Defense" of Japan, adopted in December 2018, 22 submarines and 54 main surface combat ships (including eight equipped with the Aegis combat system) should be armed with the naval self-defense forces. To date, the Japanese fleet is armed with 19 submarines and 48 warships. hi

          Well, if they are destroyed in one gulp of two submarines, then the Russian girl / China / DPRK will also be turned into dust by an answer.

          They need 22 boats and 54 ships of the main classes for limited wars with conventional types of weapons and US support in the region and in the world. For example, the destroyer Takanami was sent to Iran’s containment forces.


          They also need a fleet to counter China, which has very acute conflicts over the islands with them. And there, regular wars on water cannons go between the coast guards.

            Firstly, they will destroy Japan. With its new PL.22? They have there, sort of.
            I talked about this.
            You rush about like fish!

            If only one would admit that without land, the submarine is a piece of iron!

          I'll try to answer. The thing is that it is very difficult to imagine that someone will decide to use the strategic nuclear forces. But several more types of WMD were invented. First of all, it is economic and informational. If we are not very comfortable with conventional weapons, then the first two are generally completely seams. So, yes, don’t tell my iskander ...

    the cheapest way to counter submarines in Japan is to put a barrier from sonar sensors an analogue of American SOSUS

        And here is the "conquest of the world." They just go at the forefront of technological progress. And it would be surprising if these submarines would be without VNEU.

            Are you seriously? Maybe for this reason, our engineers can not do VNEU since the 90s?
            Your argument in the form of Iskander has nothing to do with it.
            PS: And just in case, take an interest in the advantages of VNEU for a submarine.

              In my opinion, “Iskander” is very much to do with it!
              VNEU, which our engineers cannot do, they compensate for the RMDS.
              You just have to put a minus ..

              With or without VNEU, without a submarine land, a piece of iron.
              Therefore, yes, you will respect the Iskanders!

              our engineers can not do VNEU since the 90s?

              VNEU has long been created and implemented on diesel-electric submarines pr.677.
              Here are the difficulties of translation, what to consider VNEU
              And by what criteria is it exactly VNEU.
              Each country has its own parameters VNEU (!)
              Everything is simple here, from diesel fuel with the help of reforming we get hydrogen into LP cylinders and then into accumulators and into a gas generator, as well as oxygen into LP cylinders
              * VNEU as in Germany and Japan will not take root with us (!) - you can only dream

      Ryu - translates as dragon. I litter, for example, if I am not mistaken, a soaring dragon. Previously, the Japanese called their legendary aircraft carriers dragons, but now it’s not allowed by status.

      yeah, but we don’t care before European fashion on VNEU

    I dare to suggest that the current VNEU is less than half a measure. The future is still with small-sized (of the order of 600-1000 kW) nuclear installations operating on battery charging. Permanent and unlimited. Then, the submarine will have a large reserve of being underwater in an ambush mode. And the ability to leisurely move under water. Moreover, this is all real and we already have experience. It may be more expensive than existing VNEU, but the efficiency is incomparable.
