'KILO' Class Submarines
A 'KILO' (Project 877) class submarine.
The 'KILO' became the standard Soviet diesel-electric submarine during
the 1980's. The boat was intended for export to Warsaw Pact countries,
and indeed serves with numerous nations around the world. These boats
are primarily indended as coastal and near-shore defensive vessels,
rather than deep-sea attack subs. Unlike previous Soviet diesel-electric 7
boats, the 'KILO' uses the "Albacore" hull form, like all modern SSNs.
