Ship project history: Small submarine intended for mass-production. Very poor designed, with unrealistic strong armament for small dimensions and very cramped internal space. In the early 1970 PLAN doctrine was changed to building the seagoing than coastal navy, small submarines lost their priority and program was cancelled.
