Iran Made Submarine Nahang-1

MEMRI: Following are excerpts from footage of the new Iranian Nahang 1 submarine, aired on the Iranian News Channel (IRINN) on March 8, 2006.

Reporter: The Nahang 1 ("Whale") sumarine has joined the navy of the Iranian army. This submarine was designed and manufactured with Iranian knowledge, and it is one of Iran's largest defense programs.

Navy Commander of the Iranian Army, Admiral Sajjad Kouchaki: Nahang 1 is the result of the labor of the navy's scientists, scholars, researchers, and experts. It took a long time, but fortunately, we've managed to design this submarine.

Reporter: The Nahang 1 is fully compatible to conditions in the Persian Gulf. In terms of maintenance and repairs, there is Iranian knowhow. It provides the navy with unique options for its use. Its design and construction involved 220 experts, and 1.2 million hours of scientific and industrial work.

Analysis: More of a delivery vehicle or a mine layer than an attack submarine. It can possibly be designed to sneak into another Gulf countries port and attack anchored vessels. Worst case scenario is that they could use these as suicide ships.

  • I guess George Bush wants us to be scared of these?

    I wonder if they are based on the Russian export Amur design?

  • That is a Kilo class submarine, 3 of those were exported to Iran under Yeltsin, they are of a special export version not in service with the Russian Navy.

  • These 2 pictures here are Kilo-class "Taregh" subs, of which are possibly up to 6 in the current Iranian inventory now. The "Nahang-1" is a smaller sub, indigenously build and designed in Iran (Note: The Nahang-1 should not be mixed-up with the even smaller "Ghadir" of which are also pics posted here as under "Mini-sub").

  • Ohh, the Iranis got ancient russian technology. Reeeeeally scary. Even my small country could blast them to pieces and our defence budget are virtually nill. But we've got some good unique technology here, and we go for quality instead of quantity.

  • The comment from the small country guy is none-sense
    If his/her country has nill defence budget, it couldnt have high quality equipment/technology to "Blast" anything.

  • Ironic isn't it? Americans get on here and are so happy that Iran doesn't have the best technology in the world, then they turn around and claim Iran is a military threat to them.

  • Contrary to myth, the U.S. Navy is quite vulnerable to foreign submarines as war games over the last 10 years have proven. Last year, for example, a Chinese sub sneaked into a carrier battlegroup's perimeter and then surfaced about 5000 meters away from the carrier as a display of its capabilities. Even Australia's ancient Oberon-class diesel-electric subs were able to score successful approaches and attacks in mock battle against U.S. Navy battle groups. Brazil improved the German Type-209 sub and created the Tikuna-class submarine for Brazil's navy. The Tikuna has proven itself with great success in mock battles with the U.S. and other countries. There's no reason why the Nahang-1 couldn't damage the carrier battle groups if Bush or Israel decide to strike Iran first.

    America's most powerful weapon is psy-ops and myth. The world's weakness is that no other country has as much combat and intimidation experience as the U.S. If other countries would stop treating their militaries as hobbies of the state and start exercising them for war, then dictators like Lord Bush will think twice about abusing what's left of America's military power to the detriment of world peace and stability.

  • Ok,it's really childish and rediculous to see some people posting some bias information which are backed up with merely NOTHING! I'm not gonna argue about whether the Iranian submarine is copied from soviet kilo or whatever, simply because theres no evidence indicating the mentioned statement. Therefore, to all those who think they can discredit Iranian defence technology achievments, stop repeating what you hear from fox news, NBC, CNN, BBC, CNBC and all other zionist funded broadcasting networks. Iranians worked hard for what they've achieved now and regardeless of all those nonsense crap posted by some mentally disabled retarded people on most of the belogs about the same subject, Iran is powerful enough to win it's rights. If you have any doubts about Iran's capabilities just take a look at Hezbollah/israel war. which basically was a proxy war between Iran and US ending up with the victory of Hezbollah or Iran over US. Iran is not iraq, and you have no idea about Iranian history and people, just to give you a glimps of what I'm talking about, this nation has been known as Iran, without interruption, for the past 4,000 years. How many nations on this planet can you count that have had the same name for the past 4,000 years? None! So, to all those who try to weaken the image of Iran, back off before its too late. Don't forget the fact that you're not the smartest, there are much more smarter people out there whom you haven't even have the capacity to think of. So try not to mess with those smart people, specially the Persian ones (since they are Aryans, and one way or another all the historical evidence proves Aryans have been the smartest and superior race since forever). Long Live Iran (The Land Of Aryans).

    Nice. Very big of you to throw out insults. I'm glad that you are a proud Iranian who knows enough to misstate facts. Iran is a nation with 5000 years of history and it has never been a racist nation as your comment about Aryan superiority would imply. The Iran of today has earned on thing . . . being called a sponsor of terror and a very repressive nation. That is the only thing the rag heads have earned. Don't take pride in the destructive prower of Iran. This will hopefully only act to percipitate the rag head government's downfall. Free and democratic Iran is a dream that has to become reality. That would be source of pride.

  • Template based on North Korean or Serbian designs!?
    I believe these small coastal defence submarines are based on North Korean or Serbian designs, and built and assembled under close supervision in Iran - with foreign assistance.
    However, it has provided Iran with new capabilities; but I doubt it has any forms of stealth capabilities, though Iran may have actually poured financial investments into North Korean and Serbian (or other) programs.
    Iran is really trying painstakingly to built an arms industries - but currently its weapons programs are really based on rebuilding, reconstructing and remanufacturing existing weapons systems and its sub-systems with more modern technologies, mainly in the forms of upgrades - with assistance provided by re-turned Iranians trained in the West and elsewhere, and those trained by the West before 1979 - and later, those trained by the FEE and FSU, and also by China and North Korea, in reverse-engineering (which are really knock-offs built and assembled under license or no license at all) which are tailored and customised to Iran's specifications and requirements.
    I also believe that Iran have also acquired older and used captured American-made weapon systems from Vietnam and elsewhere - especially F5 A/B/C/Ds, AH1s and UH1B/Ds, M60/M48/M113 tanks and vehicles, and Hawk SAMs, etc. - then upgrade these systems with parts and components sourced from the FEE and FSU, and elsewhere.
    It is also noteworthy that the Iranians have been able to rebuilt and reconstruct, uprate and upgrade engines - and these are areas where they have mastered - with foreign assistance provided.
    Iran have also employed large numbers of foreign technical personnels to maintain its large inventory of weapons - sourced from various countries - and these also include highly-skilled surplus R and D personnels from the FEE and FSU, and elsewhere.
    It is also true that these 4 new Ghadir Class submarines are coastal defence submarines with limited capabilities, and they can only pose a threat to Western warships operating near coastal waters, and they do pose a serious threat as hit-and-run submarines to advanced Western warships and submarines berthed at naval bases or merchant ports, with its self-defence systems switched off.
    The more potent sub-surface threat/s are the 3 Russian-supplied Kilo Class conventional attack submarines (Iranian designation: Tariq Class), though another new one (or more) may have also been acquired secretly, recently.
    But we can expect more Ghadir Class coastal defence submarines to be commissioned,at least some 8 or more, to allow Iran to have any form of sub-surface coastal defence capability at all.

  • The Nahang-1 - Real or Imagined Threat!?
    If you read the article enclosed below that I have written below, these are the real submarines currently in the Iranian naval inventory, which pose a more potent and semi-potent threat to Western warships and submarines.
    I believe the Nahang-1 is really the classification of a midget submarine used by the Iranians for a host of coastal operations - like mine warfare and counter warfare, special operations, etc. - to name a few, therefore the pictures provided in this debate is fake.
    The Iranians probably have more than a dozen of these midget submarines in service, and they are probably built on templates supplied by the North Koreans or Serbians, who also excel in these fields - and they are developing the Nahang-2 right now.
    The Nahang-1 are probably in the hands of Hezbollah and/or the Iranian Revolutionary Guards operating in southern Lebanon, and Israel must pay heed to this piece of information.
    This is also the reason why Israel must continue to operate the smaller Gal Class submarines, which could be used effectively against the Ghadir Class which could also be supplied to Hezbollah in the near future, but also other surface and sub-surface combatants, and this include midget submarines.
    I also suggest that the West (which include Israel and Japan) develop smaller attack submarines which could fire 2-4 (or more) small A244S Whitehead lightweight torpedoes from its current template of midget-type/s submarines - for coastal defence operations (but also to provide naval fleet escorts in/near coastal waters, or when berthed when warships are most vulnerable to attacks!) - and these could also include remotely-operated midget submarines, and/or those operated by 2-4 or 6-8 personnels.
