The above is the first ever photo of China’s 094A strategic nuclear submarine that has recently been posted on the Internet.

094A is an improved version of 094 strategic nuclear submarine with smoother shape. It has filled the corners of its bridge casing and removed the window there.

The submarine is said to be conducting routine patrol in the oceans for second strike. It carries 12 JL-2 submarine-launched intercontinental ballistic missiles with 3-6 nuclear warheads and a maximum range of 7,400 km.
