    https://www.reuters.com/article/us-iran-submarine-fateh/iran-presents-new-fateh-submarine-armed-with-cruise-missile-tv-idUSKCN1Q60EB

    Iranian President Hassan Rouhani on Sunday inaugurated a new domestically-built submarine armed with cruise missiles at a time of rising tensions with its arch-enemy the United States.

    “From this moment, the Fateh Submarine joins Iran’s naval force with my order,” Rouhani said in a ceremony broadcast live on the state-run English-language Press TV.

    The Fateh “Conqueror” submarine weighs 600 tonnes, Press TV said, adding that it “enjoys state-of-the-art weaponry, including torpedoes, naval mines and cruise missiles that could be launched from a submerged position”.

    Iranian NAVY receive new domestic submarine Fateh armed with cruise missiles.

    The yanks have realised that carrier based aircraft have limited range and payload . And are vulnerable to shore  based cruise and ballistic missile attack . Also F18 and F35 need refuelling.  Making air refuelling tankers a target  for shore based interceptor aircraft . So they have come up with B21 raider ( long range bomber ) programme . A carrier based medium bomber .  But they say it is heavy bomber . It will have it's own longer range,  fighter escorts . Also carrier based . The Iranians need to build more longer range  submarines . With capability to kill carriers with cruise missiles and torpedoes. And also land attack  missiles to take out runways . Line of contact must now be extended . What is estimated range of B21 , with minimal payload ? What off the shelf engine,  are they likely to have used ? The rest can be worked out from wing area .

    Imagine a radar picket sub... if the enemy are launching an attack you can have them operating 10 miles off shore (ie still inside your legal waters)... just a standard sub with a much lower than normal conning tower with flat square faces with AESA antenna arrays facing front and rear and each side and a vertical launch system for something like S-350... with 40km and 120km range export SAMs and active radar homing.

    During times of heightened tension you could send out 3-4 of these subs... they don't need long range or high speed... just good endurance... you could power the AESA radars on the surface with the diesel engines to detect attacks or even to engage aircraft returning to carriers after an attack.

    The S-350 is a powerful SAM and would be rather potent against heavily laden aircraft on an attack mission.

    I did have this idea before . Of a submarine based SAM system . I think whatever system is less costly and safer . A sub surfacing for long , itself becomes a target . So it must not loiter on the surface for long and it probably needs a land based radar , telling it to surface . Then using own instruments . Perhaps better to have submerged unmanned SAM platforms . Ordered to surface , or orderd to submerge , when aircraft approach . As long as they can not be detected , on bottom of sea ! Or just hit the carrier with long range cruise and keep sub out of sight . Safe and sound . But need sattelites to direct subs or advanced long range accoustics or shore based radar .

    Strange that they call it a destroyer, since it is a 1300tons ship, quite smaller than Russia's 20380 corvettes....

    Even if they jump on Russia from behind and stab her repeatedly in the back screaming obscenities... Iran would still be a more reliable and responsible partner than the US or UK could ever be to Russia.

    I knew u would blame the site. But there's a grain of truth in that quote. I recently spoke to an Iranian cab driver here in AZ- he feels that Russia got more in the Caspian than it should have.

    The vast majority of Iranians living in America (especially West Hollywood) fantasize about toppling the current Iranian regime and going back to the previous fascist govt., almost exactly like the Anti-Castro Cubans....hardly a reliable source of information.

A year ago, Iran launched its first submarine-missile and now we are manufacturing it in large numbers,” Commander of Iranian Army Navy Rear Admiral Hossein Khanzadi said on Sunday. "Today, we have achieved the technology to launch missiles from the depth of sea and the equipment that comes with it, including the missile, and its capsule, the submarine and its workforce are totally Iranian," Khanzadi added. en.mehrnews.com/news/151891/ Nasr naval cruise missile, Jask 2 project.

    Modernization of the Iranian frigate Alborz

    Built in Britain before the revolution, the lightweight frigate Alborz (named after the Elbours mountain system) of the Vosper Mk.5 project continues to serve Iran. Judging by the latest photographs, he underwent another modernization during which the Iranian six-barrel 30-mm Kamand anti-aircraft artillery system was installed on it with an optoelectronic system for detecting and tracking targets.

    Yes we need fast attack boats. To target the littoral enemy ships. That dislodge amphibian IFV's. That do shore landing by marines. But we need air cover for these boats. And they have limited range. The enemy stand outside their range and fire cruise missiles. Yes we need ships with vertical launch anti - cruise missile, missiles. Then we need our own anti - ship missiles from missile cruiser. But enemy has standard missiles. And many of them. And aircraft carrier launched jets with  anti - ship cruise missiles. Many of them. But then we get lucky. And after loosing several planes and surface ships. Manage to sink an aircraft carrier. But the enemy has more aircraft carriers. So we need submarines. They can not be hit by jets. Or cruise missiles. And torpedo hard to intercept. So save the money and trouble of making complicated. What should be simple. Build many more submarines.

    Even with submarines. The aim  should be to keep away their aircraft carriers. With their longer rande B21. The aim should not be to circumnavigate the Earth with subs. Just Indian Ocean. To keep away the aircraft carriers. Since we can not compete in numbers or range with enemy subs. But can produce cheap diesel electric to cover Indian Ocean. We use land to trade with China and Europe. Make the sea into their grave. No need for surface Fleet to escort merchant ships. Can not be done. Use land for trade.

    Our Indian Ocean fleet, should be able to destroy airfields, where the enemy may use longer range bombers. The islands. But also coastal nations in Africa or Asia. Who may help them.

    Using Ocean going subs or ships to launch cruise against yank target from Atlantic Ocean is difficult. They have every chance of being hit. Better use surface fleet locally. In anti - piracy operations.

    Far easier and cheaper to launch ICBM against Yanks. Than waste time and money doing it by ships or subs. Twelve years until heavy Ocean going sub. Just one sub. Therefore the priority for now is :

    ( 1) Numerous cheap and capable diesel subs for Indian Ocean. To kill carriers. 200 plus.

    ( 2)  ICBM.

    ( 3) Everything else.

    Cheaper to buy S-300/400/500s from Russia &/ their counterparts from China like HQ-9. Also land based/ALAShMs/drones, MPA, & missile EW systems.
    Eventually, the waterway from the Caspian to the Gulf will be built & it will have huge economic & military value; Iran will become to Russia what Panama is to the USA.
