    Maybe 600kW?

    There is an estimate of 38KW required for a stationary Yuan.

    Then there is the smaller Gotland submarine which has 150KW of Stirling Engines for a sustained speed of 5knots.
    And the Type-212 has a total of 600KW of fuel cells. It did a 2800km journey in 2weeks at 4-5knots as well.
    Plus the Soviets tested 600KW VAU-6 auxiliary reactors on their diesel-electric submarines.

    With later and later pictures, I see less and less of the square sailed Yuans. Either the number of the curved sail Yuans are increasing --- no way to track the new builds --- or older ones are being refitted to the new form. Or both is happening.

    The magazine author does not know marine animals apparently. :D

    鲸鲨 (Whale Shark) is this gentle plankton eater. It does not bite.

    Stretched version of Kilo? via LKj86. If it true what is the additional module for? Fuel cell test bed? or plug in small reactor?

    Not movie, but a TV drama named Deepwater Forces. The MC's vessel is that stretched Kilo.

    Was it stretched for movie purposes? Or was the boat the navy lent out for filming stretched to begin with?
