The upgraded vessel has had 50 new systems installed or modified, of which 20 are new systems, used in the next generation of submarines, the Blekinge Class.

HMS Uppland is the second submarine in the Gotland Class to have gone through major changes, following the delivery of HMS Gotland.

The fleet, built between 1990-1997, consists of three submarines, all which have gone through minor modifications during the first part of their lifetime.

“The Gotland-class submarines have an international reputation that many other submarines would wish for, with a stealthy ability and endurance beyond the ordinary,” Lars Tossman, head of Saab business area Kockums said.

“Sweden's ability to develop world-class submarines is a result of the close co-operation between industry, the Swedish Defence Materiel Administration and the Swedish Royal Navy.

“We at Saab are proud that the latest cutting-edge underwater technology is now operational on-board both HMS Uppland and HMS Gotland.”
