Iran launches cruise missile equipped Fateh submarine

Fateh, with a 100-percent domestically-sourced technology, can operate more than 200 meters below the sea surface for almost five weeks, Press TV reported. The Fateh is its first domestically produced cruise-missile submarine.

"Our defence power is exclusively defensive".

Iran has launched a new submarine it built itself which it claims is capable for firing cruise missiles amid heightened tensions with the United States.

Iran's defense minister noted that Fateh submarine can fire torpedoes with a diameter of 533 millimeters and can carry eight naval mines and two reserve torpedoes.

In a meeting with Navy commanders in November 2018, Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei praised as "great and fabulous" the advances that Iranian military forces, the Navy in particular, have made since the victory of the Islamic Revolution in 1979, saying the Navy's success in bringing into service homegrown vessels such as the Sahand destroyer or Fateh and Qadir submarines heralds more progress day after day.

Iran has developed a large domestic arms industry in the face of worldwide pressure and embargoes that have barred it from importing many weapons.

Iran says it has missiles with the range of up to 2,000 km (1,250 miles), meaning Israel and U.S. military bases in the region are within reach.

US President Donald Trump pulled out of a 2015 nuclear agreement between Iran and six powers last May and reimposed sanctions on Tehran.

Iran's Revolutionary Guards on February 7 unveiled a new ballistic missile with a range of 1,000 kilometres (620 miles), according to the elite unit's official media agency Sepah News. "Our enemies, America and Israel, want to create division among Iranians", Rouhani said in a public speech in southern Iran, broadcast live on state TV.

"Maybe we would not have this motivation to industrialize our defense sector", he said, if Iran could just buy the weaponry it needed.

Iran's top military brass and cabinet ministers attended the ceremony.
