Chinese Type 041 Qing Class Submarine was launched at Wuhan Shipyard last year. It is rumored that Type 041 Qing Class Submarines are fitted with flank sonar arrays and improved targeting system to effectively provide guidance to the long-range antiship missiles and land attack cruise missiles.
Qing Class Submarine features hull mounted retractable foreplanes and very large hydrodynamically streamlined sail.
Type 041 Qing Class submarines may also be able to house vertical launch tubes in its sail section to launch cruise missiles.
Submarine's submerged displacement is around 4,200t.
