Andrasta can undertake most missions normally assigned to full-size conventional submarines. Its small size and stealth make it ideal for all types of littoral missions, including special operations and intelligence gathering. In particular, Andrasta deters anyone and everyone tempted to explore littoral waters under its watch. It takes extensive resources and a great deal of time to locate an Andrasta submarine on its home turf.

Powerful sensors ensure significant operational advantages over all types of adversaries, especially in challenging coastal waters.
Andrasta’s state-of-the-art combat system can accommodate new-generation heavyweight torpedoes
and anti-ship missiles, ensuring ample firepower and making it a strong deterrent.
Systems and features for special operations include a trunk for combat swimmers.

Andrasta is ideal for navies big and small wishing to establish or expand a submarine force around a product offering unparalleled capabilities for littoral operations. Andrasta is the first design for a new segment of the conventional submarine market.
Andrasta draws heavily on proven solutions adopted for the Scorpene family. The layout and overall concept reflect the boat’s mission profile while ensuring a low purchase cost and a low cost of ownership.
