The Scorpène® 2000 is silent. It measures 66 to 82 metres in length, has a displacement of 2,000 tonnes, features numerous innovations to increase its acoustic discretion, and uses latest-generation sonar systems. It can be fitted with flank arrays and a reelable towed array sonar system to facilitate operations in coastal waters. As the submarine is highly automated, it is manned by a small crew and can carry half a dozen commandos.
