(First comments)[edit]

Additional information added for Type 033, 035, and 039. Adeptitus 08:00, 27 June 2006 (UTC)

The 039/039G Song has absolutely nothing to do with the Romeo or the 033/035. The Song is a completely new design with very different hull shape, much bigger in size, different missions, and different design philosophy. Qgyu 08:51, 25 July 2007 (UTC)

560 submarines?[edit]

The article presently claims that out of a planned 560 submarines, 20 were constructed. I don't think that can be correct at all, does the source say 560 or 56?2/\/\flaviu5 (talk) 03:06, 31 October 2012 (UTC)


The article claims the Romeo's were developed from the German Type XXI U-boat. That seems a bit thin; the Soviets may have used captured German technology to inform their immediate post-war designs (the Whiskey and Zulu classes) but the Romeo's were a development of them, not some 15-year-old WWII stuff. Does anyone have a citation for this claim? Xyl 54 (talk) 23:37, 5 August 2013 (UTC)


This page seems to be about two different subjects; the Soviet Romeo class and a related but different Chinese submarine class. They really should be on separate pages; if there are no objections I'll move the stuff on the Chinese Type 033 submarines and their derivatives to its own page.

Dubious, again[edit]

I've re-written the introduction to remove the (rather dubious) suggestion that the 633 Romeo submarine was based on the German Type XXI. It seems I flagged this as dubious a while ago, but the tag seems to have disappeared without any attempt to reply, or find a source to support the contention. So I have gone ahead and taken it out, for the reasons already stated. I trust everyone is OK with that. Xyl 54 (talk) 22:34, 10 August 2017 (UTC)
