Iran Adds Three More Submarines to Fleet

Iran has added three more Ghadir class coastal running submarines to its Navy.

All parts of these submarines, including their body and their advanced radar equipment and defense systems have been designed and manufactured by our country’s defense experts and with the help of the Defense Ministry,” said Iranian Army Navy Commander Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari at a press conference on Saturday.

They just added four a year ago:

Sayyari also said Saturday that Iran’s naval patrol time has increased from 15 to 90 days, and that they have the capability to build an aircraft carrier.
