In the morning of August 02, the Portuguese Navy (PN) S160 NRP Tridente U209PN AIP powered conventional submarine has arrived at the PN main naval base.

S161 NRP Arpão, the second of the two Tridente Class submarines built by the German shipbuilder Howaldtswerke Deutsche Werft GmbH (part of ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems AG) for Portugal will arrive next year.

Portugal has selected the U209PN instead of DCNS/NAVANTIA SA Scorpène design to replace the Daphné type Albacorra Class.
