The MN-2 Manda is a diesel-electric submarine produced at the Musica Naval Arsenal, with technology provided by study of naval assets inherited from Drak-Modan, Setec Kezan Ltd, and maintenance of Shireroth's remaining shire:Poltroon Class Submarine. First contracted in 1692 AN, the lead ship, IRS Manda, was commissioned on 5.III.1698 AN. A lengthy shakedown cruise led to revisions of the design and improved quality control before the Imperial Commission for Defence ordered an initial run of eight ships, with the intention to order more, pending satisfaction of performance in the fleet, in order to replace the Shirerithian Navy's aging fleet.
