Saab's submarine range includes larger and smaller submarines designed for a suitable variety of missions and requirements. Specifications for each submarine segment can be tailored to customer requirements and operational needs.
Saab's pelagic segment refers to our smaller submarines, suitable for long-range missions in narrow or littoral environments. Highly maneuverable with high speed and a large weapon load, these submarines pose a dangerous threat to any adversary. Pelagic submarines have a lower acquisition price and operating cost and can also be offered with Stirling AIP technology for superior submerged endurance.
Throughout our history, we have continuously developed our submarines. The flagship of the ocean segment is the Blekinge-class submarine, currently in production for the Royal Swedish Navy. Its modular design and production method allows the submarine to accommodate a larger and more versatile weapons suite, crews of different sizes, highly efficient AIP systems and a portal multi-mission tm , greatly increasing operational range.
Ocean wide range
Submarines in the Oceanic Extended Range (ER) segment are the largest of the series, designed for much longer missions, larger crew size, and increased weapons payload capacity. Oceanic ER submarines enable long-range operations, suitable for any navy using the forward deployment of their submarines on extended missions.
