Ship project history: Type 039G with air-independent power plant. Also submarines presumably can launch 3M54 Club SSMs and YJ-18 supersonic SSMs (currently in development). Type 039B differs from the type 039A by having flank sonar array and (may be) VLS. Building of 20 type 039C submarines is planned.

Modernizations: None.

Naval service: No significant events.
