Teal: It’s not the manliest colour.Still, the Ghadir class submarines Iran recently put into the water have some scary little attributes. It also isn’t the only vessel Iran has under construction.
Their Naval Show Nov. 28 celebrated the completion of two of those Teal Ghadirs and another two of their killer-cool hovercrafts. They also noted the completion of one stage of their guided missile frigate the “Jamaran,” which was built organically within Iran.
The Ghadir class midget sub is torpedo equipped, diesel fuelled and considered 'sonar silent.' It's also small enough to manoeuvre in shallow water.
The 'Tondar' or Thunder hovercraft is missile ready as well as capable of launching surveillance drones.
This 'Jamaran' guided missile destroyer reached a new stage of construction. It will be the first organically built frigate in Iran's Navy.
Alongside the destroyer is the 'Sina-7' battleship, which utilizes the same 'radar-deflecting' armour of its bigger sister the 'Jamaran.'
