Along with the lead boat of the class, the Swedish Navy operates three of the diesel-electric submarines, which were designed and built by Kockums shipyard. Designed as a multirole submarine, the Gotland-class could be used in anti-surface warfare (ASuW), anti-submarine warfare (ASW), collection of intelligence including communications intelligence (COMINT) and electronic signals intelligence (ELINT), as well as forward surveillance, special operations and mine laying – the submarines have proven to be well-suited to each.

The first submarines in the world to feature a Stirling engine air-independent propulsion (AIP) system, these have an extended endurance of weeks – a capability that had previously only been available in nuclear-powered submarines. Diesel engine submarines typically need to surface every few days or draw in air from the snorkel to recharge the batteries. With the Gotland-class, the batteries are saved for times when the submarines need speed but otherwise cruise on the AIP.
