Iranian submarines to be ready in one month

Iran’s new domestically built submarines are to be unveiled in August, Defense Minister Ahmad Vahidi said, according to Press TV.

Iran announced in 2008 that it had started building submarines to give its military “the most advanced arms” and maintain “security” in the Strait of Hormuz.

The Defense Ministry inaugurated the production line for the Qaem submarines two years ago, saying the vessels would have the capacity to launch torpedoes and subsurface missiles.
