So that means the Qing class would be much larger than kilo class as well? An ocean going quite diesel sub?
The Fit & Finish of Chinese New Sub's Have Being Improved Very Much Over the Years

uh...can anyone post that image?
Try GE, coordinates 30 32 06 N 114 17 03 E, and you will get the full picture for yourself.
So, as the shape will be about the same, a Qing would be about 5200 tons.
Lets assume 92-95 meters by 9.8 to 10.5 meters for the fully exposed Qing. Increase in height is presumed as well.
Changes in dimensions like that would make the Qing have far larger displacement hence my 6000 figure. perhaps I should have said 5500 to 6500 tons submerged instead.
Qing should have similar pattern to Yuan besides the tower which is at least twice as large
Here is a 7000 ton 110 meter by 10 meter Los Angelos class for comparison as well.

At 6500 tons, the Qing should be bigger than the IJN's I-400 submersible aircraft carrier.
