Models and some hazy photographs of the Shang-class (Type 093) nuclear submarine were on display in an exhibition at the Military Museum of the Chinese People's Revolution during the 80th anniversary of the founding of the PLA in late July.

China's Shang-class nuclear submarine (Type 093).

Later, Modern Ships Magazine published the first clear photo of one of the submarines in August.

The Type 093 nuclear submarine is China's second generation nuclear-powered attack submarine. It will replace five first generation Han-class attack submarines (Type 091) - obsolete and tremendously noisy - that first launched between 1970 and 1990.

The Type 093 submarine began construction in the mid-1990s. Two were launched in 2002 and 2003 respectively.

China's Type 093 nuclear submarine is known as the Shang-class nuclear submarine in Western countries.
