Type-100 Sun Tzu submarine was launched at the Bohai shipyard in Huludao.

The new Chinese super-submarine is a competitor to the largest Typhoon class submarine pr.941 of the Russian Navy.

On April 1, 2021, a new Type-100 Sun Tzu submarine was launched at the Bohai shipyard in Huludao.

Specifications:
length – about 210 meters (690 feet);
width – about 30 meters (100 feet).

The new Chinese boat is three to four times larger than the US Navy’s Ohio class.

She is armed with 48 submarine ballistic missiles.  It can also carry huge autonomous nuclear-powered torpedoes.

The new submarine is expected to be the centerpiece of the show during a military parade in Beijing to mark the 100th anniversary of the Chinese Communist Party in July 2021
