Itīs the Swedish submarine
"Nordkaparen", that was built in 1962.

Even to this day it is capable
of laying out to sea for operations
In deep water.

This is the Swedish submarine class
"Gotland" , which is the latest
model in the Swedish Navy.
It is the world's first
series-manufactured sub
equipped with an AIP

which enable the sub to stay
submerged for a longer time.

The Gotland class has a lenght
of 60,4 m and a crew of 28.
