Barracuda SSN
 
Between 2017 and 2027, Barracuda-type SSNs will replace Marine Nationale (French Navy's) current-generation Rubis/Améthyste-class SSNs. The Barracuda program represents a vital contribution to the renewal of France’s naval forces. The Barracuda submarine (Suffren class) was designed to be quieter than the current Rubis class SSN, even at higher speeds, with increased underwater detection capabilities and a larger weapons payload.
