Should Iran become involved in conflict with the US (any attempts to close the Hormuz Strait will get US involved), so USN/AF will do their best to
achieve naval supremacy, or make resupply operations for the Iranian navy impossible. And that's where these new subs could become handy. They are
small in size and could not be easily tracked by US naval ships, so supplies/weapons could be made to attack subs that could operate as long as 2
months without refueling.
IRIN could also use a wide range of anti-ship cruise missiles, she possesses, such as Silkworm, Yakhont and Moskit.
Iran could also use navy decoys so that Iranian surfacing subs and speed boats could hide among these decoys and they could move to within the torpedo
or anti-ship range.
Remote-controlled speed boats packed with explosives, could be used as part of gureilla fleet to hit USN ships. This type of anti-ship weapons has
many advantages over other types that I would describe in details if you are interested!
Also, Iranian kamikaze planes could target USN carriers, ships beyond iranians waters, well into Indian Ocean.
