    DCNS, a French submarine builder, has allegedly been hacked – potentially for economic espionage reasons – and 22,400 pages of “secret” documents pertaining to its Scorpene-class submarine have been leaked.

    The Australian published redacted portions of the leaked documents, claiming to have seen thousands of pages outlining highly sensitive details about systems, sensors, specifications, tech manuals, stealth capabilities, antennae models, electromagnetic and infrared data, conditions under which the periscope can be used and more. The leaked documents reportedly detail “the entire secret combat capability of the six Scorpene-class submarines that French shipbuilder DCNS has designed for the Indian Navy.”
