It is equipped to actively fight surface ships and their flying assets and jump under water to evade artillery and missiles.
The only way to take it down is to use coordinated attack on it with several kind of weapons at once.

I have just read several page evaluation of this concept in our polish magazine of arms review and was impressed.

How quiet are those water jets? Also 10kts submerged seems like it's not very quick for a submarine...

Looks quite cool though :)

A few ASROCs should take care of that :P
