Two Qadir-class submarines were delivered to the Iranian Naval forces in the coastal strip of Makran along the Persian Gulf and the Gulf of Oman in the presence of Navy Commander Rear Admiral Hossein Khanzadi, Fars News Agency (FNA) reported.
Addressing the ceremony in Jask region in Southern Iran on Tuesday, Rear Admiral Khanzadi underlined the country’s capability to produce different home-made arms and military equipment.
He described the Navy as the symbol of the Iranian nation’s might in the sea, warning enemies that any aggression against the country and its waters and borders will receive a crushing response.
Qadir-class submarines are equipped with sonar-evading technology and can fire missiles and torpedoes simultaneously.
In relevant remarks in August, Rear Admiral Khanzadi had announced that his forces would soon be supplied with a new modern home-made submarine which will surprise the enemies.
“Fateh submarine will join the Navy’s fleet by the end of this (Iranian) year,” Rear Admiral Khanzadi said.
He explained that different tests have been carried out on Fateh, adding that Fateh is a “Navy surprise for those who show us their claws and teeth.”
