Delfinul (Dolphin) is the Kilo class submarine of the Romanian Naval Forces. It was commissioned in August 1985 and is currently the only Romanian submarine in service. Due to a lack of funding the submarine is inactive since 1995 and kept in reserve docked in the military sector of the Port of Constanţa. Currently the Romanian MoD has plans to overhaul the submarine during 2009, so the submarine would re-enter service later that year.
