Submarines are shrouded in secrecy. Much of their technology, their missions and their capabilities, are closely guarded secrets. But their mere existence is hard to keep under wraps. So it is no secret that, for example, the U.S. Navy operates the USS Jimmy Carter, arguably the world's most capable spy submarine. The same goes for every navy.

Yet here are four submarines, currently out there in the oceans of the world, whose development has been kept so secret that we do not even know their name.

1. China's unique sailless submarine

Flag China is probably the only country on earth that can build a full-size submarine without any details leaking out. In 2019 China surprised everyone by launching a submarine that no one had been expecting. Nearly everything we know about this unnamed boat is via open source intelligence (OSINT).
