The South Korean Navy is interested in Naval Group's Barracuda nuclear attack submarines

The Think Tank in charge of the study of the SNA option for the South Korean Navy reported that the Barracuda de Naval Group, which will replace the Rubies of the French Navy over the next decade, was the best choice. The French nuclear submarine is deemed efficient and safe by the South Koreans, and has the advantage of operating with a reactor using low enriched uranium. However, South Korea is required not to use enriched uranium equipment for military purposes, and must limit itself to civilian applications or the use of low enriched uranium. It is not specified whether contacts have already been made with France, but the operation is considered efficient in military terms and affordable from an economic point of view.
