The Scorpene class submarine is a class of diesel-electric submarine jointly developed by DCNS of France and the Spanish company Navantia. Following a split between the two companies, Scorpène submarines are now solely marketed by DCNS and considered a French design. The class is currently used by Chilean and Royal Malaysian Navies, and has been ordered by Indian and Brazilian navies.

Scorpène submarines are designed in order to maximize stealth and feature very low acoustic, magnetic, electromagnetic and infrared signatures. To achieve this goal all machines and equipment are resiliently mounted on flexible couplings with double elastic mountings. Further noise-reducing focus includes the use of flexible cables and flexible through bulkhead couplings for joining pipes, and special low-noise emission components for rotating machinery.
