3 more submarines join Iranian navy

11.26.11 02:05 PM

TEHRAN, Nov. 26 (UPI) -- Iran's submarine fleet grew Saturday, adding three Ghadir-class vessels, Rear Adm. Habibollah Sayyari, the commander of the navy, said.

At a news conference in Tehran, the admiral said the submarines, like others in the Ghadir class, are of homegrown design, the Fars News Agency reported.

"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," he said.

Military officials said the submarines are armed with both missiles and torpedoes and have equipment enabling them to avoid detection by sonar.

The first Ghadir-class submarines were launched in 2009.
