Doesn't matter how many Kilos they have, six I believe, we have about 45 nuclear fast attack submarines. We also have allies with lots of submarines and ASW helos and what-not.

Maybe, but I personally would not want to try to navigate a Los Angeles class attack sub in the confined and shallow waters of the Persian Gulf.

A smaller, modern diesel electric would be better suited - and the US is not exactly well equipped with those.

Ok so the sub pictured is not the actual sub then? Because thats really little compared to a US attack sub.

Mehran, dont know if you have seen this page before but it has in depth detail of the entire Iranian military. I'm sure theres some good stuff in here for you. I'm just going to leave it on the list of countries pages so you can go back and look at others if you like.

good for our navy and also very good for patroling. it has multi-weapon and multi-purpose capabities and is perfect for the gulf waters.




Tehran, March 7 - Iran's armed forces deployed this week a new home-built submarine in the Persian Gulf waters.

The vessel is named the Nahang, meaning whale, and was built by specialists in the Iranian Defence Ministry and has the capability to carry multipurpose weapons for different missions, rear admiral Sajjad Kouchaki said.

"The submarine is fully adapted to the Persian Gulf," he said, adding that the Iranian navy was pursuing a policy of deterrence in the strategic waters.

this is what the us just did in response to the launching of iran's newest sub




we sent a sub out on patrol from the base at Bangor Wa. to shadow it.

don't sneeze or even scratch your butt. we can hear both those from miles away

All submarines are stealthy, except when running full steam or cavitatng, O.K Los Angeles class subs are a little big so we use the Virginia class, I think they are a little smaller; My dad who was on the USS Toledo during the Gulf War patroled the Gulf in a Los Angeles class so I kinda thought that they might fit in there. ASW Helos would take care of them then, drop a couple of Sono-Bouys or a Dipping Sonar find them and drop the torpedo, my dad said that the Helos were actually pretty challanging to evade in wargames.


P.S ludachris that web site is very interesting

Ahh..so your Dad was on board the USS Toledo. Great. I worked on the USS Toledo when she was being built here in Virginia. I worked on many of the Los Angeles Class boats built here. Good to hear about your Dad serving on her.

Thanks,

it doesn't have the depth detail of the entire military but some. its missing so many things that would make any iranian laugh at it. thats why alot of people dont go to it nowadays. never the less good to see and having a look back on our equipment, thanks

no, Iran does have Russian built subs-but i don't think- any of them is a missle launcher.



iran has subs that where modifyed by russia to launch cruise missiles like the club-s cruise missiles with range of 280km and warhead of 200-400kg.


this article is old theres a newer one that says russians where working on a sub for iran altough im not sure if they have recived it yet.

globalsecurity is out of date - just about all of the iranian tomcats are flying - with russian engines and updated avionics


and also alot of people on ATS don`t have a clue when it comes to ASW warfare.

Yes the USA have attack boats , but the ocean (and the persian gulf) is a big place - and the persian gulf is shallow - theres not alot of depth and the water is warm , which is not the place i would take my billion $ seawolf , as a diesel boat is quieter.

Yeah, but I don't think the Iranians ever got the Klub-S missiles on those kilos..

Here's something to prove otherwise though:



July 8, 2005: Russia will upgrade Iran’s three Kilo class subs, so that they can fire cruise missiles (launched from one of the six torpedo tubes of the Kilos), and be generally more capable. Iran got these subs from Russia between 1992-94. The missile in question is the SS-NX-27 “Club-S,” which is based on the older SS-N-21 cruise missile. The Club-S actually comes in three versions, one for attacking ships, another for land targets and another, with a homing torpedo, for going after submarines. All versions weigh about a ton and are about the same size as a 21 inch (533mm) torpedo. The anti-ship and land attack versions have a range of 220 and 300 kilometers respectively. The anti-sub version has a range of 50 kilometers. In addition to wiring the Iranian Kilos for the new missiles, there will be other upgrades and additions to equipment.
