This is coolbert:

From DEBKAfile an update:

First there was Yugo, then there was Yono, and now there is Ghadir.

Miniature submarines one of now which has evidently gone to the bottom.

"An Iranian stealth submarine sinks before targeting a mock US carrier"

"06 May. A new Iranian Ghadir-class stealth mini-submarine, home-built with Chinese technology, recently sank near the Strait of Hormuz while preparing for a Revolutionary Guards naval exercise to practice sinking or disabling a mock-up US aircraft carrier . . . To keep the accident secret, Tehran curtailed the search for the estimated 10 crewmen."

"Ghadir . . . is a class of midget submarines built by Iran specifically for cruising within the shallow waters of the Persian Gulf . . . It is based on the North Korean Yono class submarine."

These miniature submarines as built by the Iranian allegedly in profusion about one-tenth [1/10] the size of a conventional diesel/electric submersible, carrying only two torpedoes, missions as assigned primarily of an unconventional and asymmetric nature, and then ONLY limited at that!

Such vessels when in a swarm mode of attack destroying an American naval target, numbers alone both under the water and above sufficient! That is the scenario as envisioned by Iranian military planners?

A more important subject about this, if the iranian submarines are built with chinese technology there could be the possibility (albeit little) that the chinese might be testing their technology with a friend nation like the Germans at Operation Condor.

Sounds a far possibility, but a possibility indeed.
