Abstract

The acquisition of submarines is not only intrinsically difficult and expensive for small and medium navies, but their maintenance and operation pose real challenges for them too. In particular, their operation in such contested and demanding waters as the South China Sea in an era of rising tension between China and the USA may threaten regional stability.
