      These are diesel submarines of modernized Kilo class. They had been exported into so many countries that it’s not a big secret (China, India, Vietnam, Algeria, etc)

    Las últimas fotos donde aparece el submarino navegando sugieren que es el mismo que aparece al principio.
    No es la misma nave, la torre o vela no es la misma, el tamaño la delata.
    Y esto sin contar el largo.

    I would feel better if the propeller had a guard around it for deflecting fish,seaweed,U.S. Navy seals,etc.
