Spain is intensifying its efforts to secure a major submarine deal with India. Amparo Valcarce, the country’s top defense official, is scheduled to visit India next month to further negotiations, according to a report on ABP Live.

Spain’s S-80 Plus submarine, offered under Project-75 India (P-75I), is reportedly cheaper than the competing bid from Germany’s TKMs for their U-212/214 submarines.

Here’s a closer look at the S-80 Plus:

  • Dimensions: 80.8 meters long, 7.3 meters in diameter, with a submerged displacement of around 3,000 tonnes.
  • Crew: Reduced crew of 32, with additional berths for 8 personnel.
  • Performance: Top speed of 19 knots submerged and over 10 knots surfaced.
  • Stealth Technology: Equipped with Navantia’s innovative Bio-Ethanol Stealth Technology (BEST) air-independent propulsion (AIP) system, allowing for extended underwater endurance of up to three weeks at 4 knots. Notably, the BEST system is being introduced from the third submarine onwards, with the first two planned to be retrofitted during major overhauls.
