Iran’s New Fateh-Class Submarine Debuts At Massive War Games
Fateh is not a midget submarine. It is a regular patrol submarine and can engage surface targets, presenting a threat to both warships and civilian vessels, particularly in the strategic choke point of the Strait of Hormuz.
The large-scale Zulfiqar-99 military exercise held in Iran this week looked a bit like America in the 1980s. U.S.-supplied F-4E Phantom-II jets, Chinook and Sea King helicopters and the massive Sea Stallion were all showcased.
