    The Sōryū class submarine or 16SS is a new class of diesel-electric submarine being built in Japan for use by the Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force. It is an evolved form of the Oyashio class submarine, currently the latest type of conventionally-powered submarine operated by the JMSDF, and it will have a larger displacement than any previous class of submarine used by post war Japan. It can be best visually distinguished from the Oyashio class by the X-shape of the tail planes.

    The class will also have an Stirling AIP engine (four 4V-275R Mk-III, power output each 75kW) licensed built by Kawasaki Heavy Industries system, allowing it to stay submerged for longer periods of time..

    Range:
    AIP endurance (est.): 6100 nautical miles (11297.2 km; 7060.75 miles) at 6.5 knots (12 km/h; 7.48 mp/h)

    Speed: Surfaced: 13 kn (24 km/h; 15 mph)
    Submerged: 20 kn (37 km/h; 23 mph)
