Doesn't matter how many Kilos they have, six I believe, we have about 45 nuclear fast attack submarines.

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.

Lots of good info in the thread.
no, Iran does have Russian built subs-but i don't think- any of them is a missle launcher.
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.
