INFOGRAPHICS #37: The Asian submarine forces by subregion in 2018

Written by D-Mitch

In the following infographics, I depict all the submarines that are in active service in Asia as of July 1st 2018, by subregion. I do this in order anyone could easily compare the forces of neighboring countries. The submarine forces of Western Asian, West Asian, Southwestern Asian or Southwest Asian countries (Iran, Turkey, Egypt, Israel) are excluded, as their forces are included already in other graphs such as The attack submarines of the Mediterranean in 2018 or The attack submarines of Asia and Australia in 2018 (China and Russia excluded). The North Asian submarine forces (only Russia belongs to that subregion of Asia) are excluded as well while the Central Asian countries have not submarines in their inventories. In all graphs mini-submarines and small coastal submarines are not included. Notice that in Southeast Asia, Thailand will join the rest of the submarine forces with three submarines in its inventory. There are 136 submarines in total in East Asia, 25 in South Asia and 17 in Southeast Asia.

  2. with the first Asian Country in Indian Ocean with AIP and submarine launched nuclear cruise missile the first and till now only to have been able to deploy in IOR..... With the old Agosta 90B being updated and new stealth Chinese subs on the way equipped equally with nuclear cruise missiles with Pakistan r a force to be reckoned with.
