    The 'Jin' Type 094A has a large 'hump' concealing 12 submarine-launched ballistic missiles known as 'big waves', with a range of over 11,000km.

    According to Popular Science, the sub, seen in the image at Hainan Island, in the underground submarine base at Yulin, is a new version of China's Type 084A sub, four of which have been seen before.

    The new variant has a curved tower and front. Recent improvements in the underwater force show China is beginning to catch up to other powers at sea, including the US and Japan.

    The country is already working on another nuclear attack submarine, the Type 095, which could launch before 2020.
