Description: The Hai Lung, also known as Zwaardvis, class conventional attack submarine (SSK) was designed and built in the Netherlands for the Navy of Taiwan. These 2,600-ton class boats are intended to engage hostile submarines and surface ships in the open sea (blue water operations). They feature six 21-inch (533mm) torpedo tubes with enough room for 28 torpedoes. The ship's sensor builds around SIASS hull-mounted sonar. The diesel-electric propulsion system uses relies on three diesel engines developing 5,100-shp and a top speed of 20 knots submerged. The Navy of Taiwan commissioned two Hai Lung class boats in 1987 and 1988. There were plans for further submarines but the Netherlands cancelled this project ahead of schedule.
