The new Be'sat submarine will have a displacement of 1,300 tons and will be capable of launching cruise missiles as well as torpedos.


Iran is building a new submarine, called Be'sat, which will be capable of firing cruise missiles and laying underwater mines, the country's Fars News Agency reported.

"The Navy's new subsurface vessel will be ready and launched soon to enhance the Army's power," Iranian Army Commander Major General Ataollah Salehi told reporters in December.

The submarine will be 60 meters long and have a displacement of over 1,300 tons. It will have six bays for torpedoes and marine cruise missiles.

The Be'sat, will be Iran's biggest domestically made submarine. The Iranian Navy also operates three Russian Kilo-class submarines with a displacement of 2,325 tons and six torpedo tubes but no cruise missile capacity.

North Korean technology. Pretty much outdated.

Well this will be useful for when enemy tries to get near the base and also that the missiles would probably be used for a last resort when things are looking bad and enemy is coming near. I hope it is used well and, only when needed too when the enemy is causing mayhem or try and see if other weapons can stop them first before using this. I wander what the costs will be, it would be quite high as the technology to make this and the materials that are used do cost a bit to use and buy for this purpose.
