Ship project history: This is a slightly lengthened, improved version of the original Sauro class, bought because the new S90 was not yet ready. The two units were ordered 7/3/1983. They are capable of diving deeper and are capable of firing Sub-Harpoon missiles. A single pressure-proof bulkhead was added to provide a pressure-proof internal space to shells the crew in the event the submarine sank.

Modernizations: 2002, Salvatore Pelosi; 2003, Giuliano Prini: - BSN-716(v)2 CCS; + ISUS 90 CCS

Naval service: No significant events.
