INSTALLATION OF EQUIPMENT FOR THE BARRACUDA NUCLEAR SUBMARINE PROGRAMME
submarine in a nutshell
The Barracuda, a next-generation nuclear attack submarine designed by Naval Group (formerly known as DCNS), is set to replace Rubis-class submarines. Measuring 99 m in length and accommodating a crew of 60 people, it is intended to conduct maritime patrols and is fitted with a communication system enabling its integration into a naval force. Under the Barracuda programme, a total of six submarines will be delivered to the French submarine forces by 2028.
