Mitsubishi has delivered the "Jinryu" submarine to the Japanese Ministry of Defense (MOD) in a ceremony held at the MHI Kobe Shipyard & Machinery Works' No.3 pier in Kobe, Hyogo Prefecture.
The Jinryu is the seventh Soryu-class submarine supplied to the Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force (JMSDF), and the fourth built by MHI, the company said in a statement Monday.
