Submarines that are considered to be the Wolves of the sea is the most advanced underwater predator in the world. Today, we would like to present a list of the top 10 greatest attack submarines our list is based on a combined score of offensive weapons stealth ness and some other features. Like having a good sonar in order to detect enemy weapons capable of launching cruise missiles against ships and land targets. Remaining undetected at sea endurance and so on.
10: Oscar 2 Class
Oscar 2 class which is a series of nuclear-powered cruise missile submarine designed by the soviet union known to the Russians as the project 9 for 9 an ante by modern standards. These boats are far from being stealthy they come equipped with various torpedoes and anti-ship missiles like the 24 p700 Granit supersonic cruise missiles with a range of 550 kilometers and also include the SS n 15 starfish anti-submarine missile.
The submarine provides a speed of 15 knots on the surface and 32 knots when submerged the Oscar ii class has a maximum submerged displacement of 19400 tons and has an operational depth of 830 meters.
9: Ohio Class
Ohio class of nuclear-powered. Submarines designed to carry international ballistic missiles allowing them to attack from below water’s surface and are currently in service with the United States Navy. It is armed with mark 48 torpedo tubes Tomahawk cruise missiles and w76 nuclear warheads with a range of 4,000 nautical miles.
It is equipped with BW6 passive bone mounted arrays sensors and the Ohio-class has a maximum speed of 12 knots at the surface and 20 knots when submerged maximum submerged displacement of this class is 18,750 tones operational depth is more than 240 meters.
8: Soryo Class
Soryo class it is a Japanese diesel-electric attack submarine which sports air-independent propulsion systems that allow them to stay submerged for long periods of time without surfacing to charge batteries. Their armament is limited to type 89 torpedoes and sub harpoon anti-ship missiles that are launched via torpedo tubes sensors include GPS 6f surface-level air search radar and HUE 7W7 sonar suite.
The Soryo class has a surface speed of 13 knots and a submerged speed of 20 knots this class is an evolution of the oil SEO class submarine variant displacement of 4,200 tons when submerged and its operational depth is up to a maximum of 900 meters.
7: Akula Class
Akula class we have the most popular attack submarines and Russia’s pride the Akula class which became the first Russian subs to actually be quieter than the latest US attack subs at that time sensors were also much improved compared with the previous Soviet attack submarines.
Which include the MGK quite hundred active and passive suite blank erase it comes equipped with a total of up to 40 torpedoes Ziggler M surface-to-air missiles and grenade cruise missiles the speed of the Akula-class is 10 knots on the surface and 28 to 35 knots when the submerged maximum submerged displacement is 13400 tons and it has a maximum operating depth of up to 600 meters.
6: Los Angeles-class
Los Angeles-class the sixth most powerful submarines in the world is the improved Los Angeles-class which are nuclear-powered fast attack submarines in service with the United States Navy the armament includes 421 torpedo tubes 37 MK 48 torpedo tomahawk Lat attack missile harpoon missile and pace 60 captain minds and VLS tubes the improved – Los Angeles-class boats are equipped with QBS 15 and bw5 suite.
Which includes active and passive systems sonar the sub has a speed of 20 knots on the surface and 33 knots when submerged and its maximum submerged displacement is 6818 tons these boats can operate under eyes where Russian ballistic missile submarines tend to hide its maximum operation is up to a depth of 240 meters.
5: Sierra 2 Class
Sierra 2 class we have the Sierra 2 class which is a series of nuclear-powered attack submarines intended for the Soviet Navy and currently in service with the Russian Navy the Sierra 2 class was specifically developed for Search and Destroy missions against US nuclear submarines.
It is equipped with torpedoes SS and 15 starfish anti-submarine SS and 21 Sampson SS and 16 stallion when it comes to speed it moves at 10 knots at the surface at about 32 knots with submerged maximum submerged displacement is up to 9100 tons and these submarines can operate at great depths their operational depth is 520 meters while the maximum depth is up to 750 meters that even the most advanced circling class cannot dive that deep.
4: Yeltsin Class
Yeltsin class which is a Russian designation project double 850 Osen also known as the green class this class area series of latest nuclear-powered cruise missile submarines.
Which are constructed for the Russian Navy this class is projected to replace the other classes like the Akula and Alfa designs and its weaponry includes anti-ship missiles led attack submarines cruise missiles.
And various torpedo tubes it is equipped with rim hat ESM and ECM snooper surface search radar and the speed of the grainy class is 20 knots on the surface 28 knots when submerged silently but it can go up to a maximum speed of 35 knots this class has a maximum submerged displacement of 13,800 tons and an operational depth of 450 meters the world’s.
Astute class the most powerful submarines in the world is the astute class which is the latest class of nuclear-powered fleet submarines in service with the Royal Navy the Klaus is equipped with sail sonar 207 six Atlas de Sol 25 echo sounder fitted with six 533 millimeter torpedo tubes.
Which can fire spear fished her peers sub harpoon anti-ship missiles and our cruise missiles the tomahawk block for land-attack cruise missiles have a range of 1700 kilometers and can target enemy ships as well as land targets the sub has 18 points 5 knots on the surface and 30-knot speed when submerged it’s maximum submerged displacement is seven thousand eight hundred tons and has an operational depth of 390 meters.
Virginia-class is also known as the SS n double seven for the class which is a class of nuclear-powered fast attack submarines in service with the United States Navy. It is the US Navy’s latest undersea warfare platform and incorporates the latest in stealth and weapon systems technology.
The Virginia-class submarines are fitted with 12 vertical launch system tubes which are used to launch tomahawk land-attack cruise missiles with a range of 1700 kilometers for 533-millimeter torpedo tubes to fire sub harpoon anti-ship missiles the surface and submerged speed of the Virginia-class at 25 knots and 32 knots maximum submerged displacement is seven thousand nine hundred tons and has an operational test depth of 240 meters.
1: Hunter Killer
Hunter Killer is the most powerful most advanced and also the most expensive hunter-killer submarines in the world the Sea Wolf class they are arguable. The widest submarines in the world ever constructed it is exceptionally quiet even at high speeds and they are equipped with 8660-millimeter torpedo tubes.
Which can launch MK-48 torpedoes and sub harpoon anti-ship missiles the torpedo tubes can also launch tomahawk land-attack cruise missiles with a range of 1700 kilometers this class are credited with being able to cruise at 20 knots without any noise and impossible to locate.
Its maximum surface in submerged speeds are 18 and 35 knots and it has a submerged displacement of 9,000 138 tonnes these boats can operate at greater depths than the existing US submarines and can also operate under the polar ice cap being a pretty formidable submarine by all accounts its maximum test depth is about 490 meters.
