    Iran has launched its Fateh-class submarine, the largest it has ever built, into the Persian Gulf, and is building a second at the Caspian port of Bandar Anzali, according to satellite imagery seen by IHS Jane’s Defence Weekly, which is publishing the photographs later on Wednesday.

    Jane’s said that at about 48 meters, the Fateh-class is bigger than the largest subs built by North Korea, which is believed to have helped Iran produce its 29-meter Ghadir midget subs. The one being built at Bandar Anzali will also be the first submarine launched in the Caspian.

    “This is another step in the militarization of the hydrocarbon-rich Caspian, where Iran has yet to come to an agreement with Azerbaijan and Turkmenistan regarding their territorial boundaries,” Jane’s wrote.


    The defense sector weekly said that Iran may be planning to unveil the new subs on Navy Day, November 28th, marking a naval victory over Iraq in 1980.

    The unveiling would come just days after a U.S.-brokered international treaty lifted economic sanctions on the regime.

    I think you are mixing up , Bro.

    Turkish type 209 is 1810 tons, which is 3 times the size of this Submarine.

    Here are some details on Type 209 :

    Fateh-class submarine is designed to operate in the shallow waters of the straight of hormuz. Big submarines are disadvanteged there.

    48 metres the Iranian one.
    64 metres the T-209.
    Thats 16 metres more.
    Check out my post again,i posted the tonnage.
    for sure its more then 600tons or its a very thin sub.
    I would say at least 1000tons.

    So you are in a habit of making statements without researching it first.

    The type/class was mentioned in the article above posted by @Baradar...
    here is what the article posted above said:

    Jane’s said that at about 48 meters, the Fateh-class is bigger than the largest subs built by North Korea, which is believed to have helped Iran produce its 29-meter Ghadir midget subs. The one being built at Bandar Anzali will also be the first submarine launched in the Caspian.

    “This is another step in the militarization of the hydrocarbon-rich Caspian, where Iran has yet to come to an agreement with Azerbaijan and Turkmenistan regarding their territorial boundaries,” Jane’s wrote.



    I guess I am different because I do my research before I started telling people they are wrong and make a fool o myself. :rofl:

    Read post number 2.

    You are right the article did not mention the tonnage and that prompted my question for tonnage.

    However , my immediate next step was to research to find out the tonnage on my own and I told to not bother answering my question, because by now I knew for a fact that Fateh-class Submarine was 530 Tons surfaced and 600 Tons fully submerged.

    But then that is just me. I like to research. :tongue:
