The third Taigei-class nuclear submarine of project 29SS was launched in Japan

The third in the series and the second serial non-nuclear submarine of the new generation of the Taigei type of project 29SS was launched in Japan. The ceremony took place today, October 12, at the shipyard of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) in Kobe.


The new submarine was named Jingei "(Jingei) -" Fast Whale ". In general, the entire series of submarines of this project, and there will be seven submarines in it, will be named after large fish. The lead submarine of the series was named Taigei" - "Big Whale", the first serial - "Hakugei" - "White Whale".

As mentioned above, the Japanese Navy plans to receive seven Project 29SS Taigei-class submarines in total. The entire series is being built at the shipyards of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries and Kawasaki Heavy Industries. Since the Japanese do not report the laying of new submarines, today only three submarines of the new project are known. The lead submarine Taigei SS 513 of project 29SS joined the Japanese fleet in March of this year, the first serial Hakugei SS 514 was launched in October last year and is currently being tested. Its transfer to the military is scheduled for 2023. The second serial Jingei SS 515 was launched just today.

The new submarines are intended to replace the Soryu-class submarines. The new submarine has retained the general shape of the hull of the previous generation submarines, but has a number of design changes. The cabin of the new submarines has been significantly reduced to reduce hydrodynamic drag and improve noise characteristics. Also announced about changes inside the submarine, but they are not disclosed.

Project 29SS submarines received an improved snorkel system to reduce the signature, a new generation of sonar, a new sound-absorbing coating and materials that can significantly reduce the visibility of the submarine. In addition, the Taigei nuclear submarines abandoned the use of the Stirling engine, installing new lithium-ion batteries instead.

Standard displacement - about 3 thousand tons, hull length - 84 meters, width - 9,1 meters. Crew - 70 people. The submarine carries torpedoes and anti-ship missiles.

    . In addition, on the NNS Taigei abandoned the use of the Stirling engineby installing new lithium-ion batteries instead.

    Exactly about this I wrote a long time ago that instead of VNEU, which doesn’t work out for us, you just need to put lithium-ion batteries. All boats in the future will be like this.

      Lyons are very dangerous on a submarine, a little something - the crew is full of kirdyk.

        Losharik confirms this. A dangerous toy on board is such batteries. Or make them as isolated as possible from the rest of the boat with the possibility of dropping (shooting) if necessary.

            Steel is not the most heat resistant material. Ceramic layer, vacuum, directed channels for emergency release of the flame, squibs that reset the ignited cells ...

      Lithium ion is too dangerous, most likely the Japanese have developed other batteries with much better characteristics than lithium ion and completely safe. The Japanese value the lives of their people very much.

        I can recall how security was provided at Fukushima, the Flight 123 disaster and how repairs and rescues were provided there. I wouldn't hesitate.

          And I can remind you that Fukushima was built not by the Japanese, but by their occupiers.
          And also the fact that the Japanese have long been working on synthetic battery cells that are superior in performance to lithium-ion

    Lithium-ion batteries? In Krasnodar, a man went into an elevator with a scooter, 60% of his body was thermally burned. Yes, these batteries.

      Yes, those batteries.

      Nothing to do in elevators with a scooter.
      What batteries do you have in your smartphone?
      And the quality of Chinese consumer goods should not be compared with the Japanese military-industrial complex.

      A battery self-made from junk in a private shop, God knows what a charge controller - and sorry to shave, an explosion. But modern batteries with an iron phosphate or titanate cathode are relatively safe.

    The Japanese have created a very powerful fleet and this is dangerous for us! They have more than 30 destroyers, and we don’t have a single one at KTOF!
