Swedish Gotland class submarine in drydock


Karlskrona, Sweden (SE)
The Gotland class submarines of the Swedish Navy are modern conventional submarines. They are the first submarines in the world to feature a Stirling engine air-independent propulsion (AIP) system, which extends their underwater endurance from a few days to two weeks. This capability has previously only been available with nuclear powered submarines.
