Description: The Santa Cruz or Type TR 1700 class of oceanic conventional attack submarines (SSK) were designed and built by Germany for the Navy of Argentina in the early 1980s. The initial requirement was for six boats but ultimately only two ships were built and commissioned with two ships under construction in Argentina being discontinued. The 2,300-ton class Santa Cruz boats are fitted with six 533mm (21-inch) torpedo tubes and 22 SST-4 torpedoes. The diesel-electric propulsion system consists of four diesel engines developing 8,000-shp of power and a top speed of 25 knots submerged. The sensor package includes a Krupp-Atlas CSU-83 active sonar and a Sintra-Alcatel DUUX 5 passive array. The Argentinean Navy commissioned two boats in 1984 and 1985.
