CHINA has recently upgraded the shipbuilding capacity of its Wuhan Shipyard, where countless CHINESE workers are busy on working with the Serial production of Advanced and Hi-Tech Diesel Type 039B AIP Diesel Attack Submarines.

All the submarines are equipped with the revolutionary Air Independent Propulsion (AIP) that enables the host Navy to undertake complex maritime tasks at longer duration underwater.

CHINA is currently busy in building the Submarines for CHINESE PEOPLE’S LIBERATION ARMY NAVY (PLAN) and PAKISTAN NAVY. Furthermore, the Submarines ordered by the Thailand Royal Thai Navy are also being produced in the massive Wuhan Shipyard.

The newly upgraded Wuhan Shipbuilding can not only build all the Western Counterparts, but it can also surpass the Submarine building capacity in future also.

With the building of the advanced and cutting-edge AIP-based Type 039B Attack Submarines, PAKISTAN Iron Brother CHINA is competing with the Western Shipbuilding Giant Countries as Germany and France.

The Wuchang Shipyard is located right in the center of Wuhan, which has now been moved to a much larger site further down the Yangtze River. The newly raised Wuhan Shipyard is 10 times larger than the previous and old shipyard, where the Submarines are building over the stretched 1.5 miles long river bank.

CHINA has started the construction of the newly raised Wuhan Shipyard back in 2012. CHINA has started the construction of Surface Vessels back in 2015 during the process of upgradation and modernization. CHINA has also constructed the large covered halls, where these Attack Submarines are being produced.

Thomas Shugart, a retired Submarine captain said, “When seen in combination with the ongoing major expansion of CHINA’s nuclear submarine shipyard capacity, an expansion of CHINA’s diesel submarine production capacity as well may point toward a strong effort to try to erode the advantage in undersea warfare that the U.S. and its allies currently enjoy.”
