The Project 636 class diesel-electric submarines, Kilo NATO-codename, are a further development of the proven Project 877EKM submarine featuring a quieter propulsion system as well as an improved weapon system. They are intended to engage surface ships and submarines. They can undertake reconnaissance and special operations forces infiltration missions. Low noise emissions of the propulsion system ensure enhanced survivability and improved performance compared with its predecessor Project 877EKM submarine.
