    "The Thai government said the contract is worth THB13.5 billion (USD390 million) and calls for the delivery of the S26T - a modified version of the Yuan-class (Type 041) platform - in 2023. The RTN plans to order two additional S26Ts in the next few years, with the value of the whole programme reaching THB36 billion."
