    Lada class submarine? Does ring a bell! If its as good as its namesake, China will have to spend double for spares - and, no resale value either!

  2. The Amur class submarine (named for the Amur River), is one of the latest Russian submarine designs. It is advertised as an export version of the Lada class, a modernised version of the Kilo-class submarine with improved acoustic stealth, new combat systems, and an option for air-independent propulsion (AIP).
