Iran’s new home-made submarine, Fateh, will be unveiled in the next few months, Navy Commander Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari said.
“Following the construction of Qadir (class) submarine by the Iranian Navy experts, Fateh submarine will be unveiled early next (Iranian) year (to start on March 20),” Sayyari said in the Southern city of Bushehr on Sunday, February 9, 2014.
He said that the Iranian Navy has also reached complete self-sufficiency in overhauling Kilo class submarines due to its eye-catching progress in the last 20 years.
In relevant remarks in August, Lieutenant Commander of the Iranian Navy Rear Admiral Gholam Reza Khadem Biqam announced that Iran has increased the power and efficiency of the missiles and torpedoes mounted on its newly-made Fateh submarines, stressing that Iran will implement any improvement made in systems and weapons of its new submarines in older subsurface vessels like Qadir class and even Kilo class which are used by the Navy.
