Islamic Republic's Latest "Smart" Submarine


Associated Press in Tehran - Wednesday August 13 2008 - The Guardian -

'Smart' submarine boosts military, says Tehran

Iran's defence minister was quoted by state radio yesterday as saying the country's military capabilities had "increased remarkably" since the construction of a new submarine. General Mostafa Mohammad-Najjar reported the submarine to be "smart" and unmanned, with radar-evading capabilities. The report did not elaborate on its size and technical specifics and did not say whether the submarine had been tested. Since 1992 Iran has been active in producing military equipment such as tanks, missiles and torpedoes, but little is known about the country's submarines. [color emphasis added]

Very fuel efficient, runs on a wound-up rubber band.
