Xia SSBN 1 shaft or 2 ? - Technical uncertainty

Dear all,

For some time I've been interested in doing a Boomer with a difference. (Get a bit tired of the cliched Typhoons) Either a Russian Delta or as I've had in the back of my mind for some time the Chinese type 092 XIA class SSBN. Looks alot like an early American boomer.

Now the Question is, does it have one propeller Shaft or two? Different reports conflict. Janes says one and some on-line sources say two. Two shafts make it alot more tricky. I suppose i'm hoping it's one shaft.

Being Chinese, Information on this boat is very scarce and there are only a few photo's of the boat.

Who do i believe?
