A glimpse inside: China's latest Type 093G Shang-class nuclear-powered attack submarine

This "Long March 16" is the last Shang class to enter service thus the youngest among her G variant siblings. Only the best for comrade Xi, right?  The other three sisters are "Long March 13, 14 and 15" and all four are capable of launching CY-10 cruise missile. 

The first 093 pair are "Long March 7 and 8", they carry the older YJ-82 missile.  All together there are 6 Shang class SSN (2x093 and 4x093G) currently in PLAN service. 

Gangway banner reads "Navy Long March 16 Vessel"

If we make it a point to follow President Xi around, we get to see the latest in Chinese military hardware. This is good stuff. As always, thanks to Comrade Xi!
