As noted by the company, among their missions, the Barracuda-class submarines participate in the support of the nuclear ballistic missile submarines (SSBN) of the Strategic oceanic force (FOST). They will help in particular to create a veritable sanctuary for incoming and outgoing SSBN patrols.

The new submarine is set to be delivered at the end of 2022.
