    TEHRAN (FNA)- A senior Iranian military commander underlined that the Iranian Navy's subsurface vessels enjoy a high capability to confront enemies' threats, and stated that Iran's submarines are able to ambush and hit enemy vessels specially US Aircraft carriers from the seabed throughout the Persian Gulf.
    Speaking to FNA on Wednesday, Lieutenant Commander of the Iranian Army's Self-Sufficiency Jihad Rear Admiral Farhad Amiri said that Iran has the best electronic diesel submarines of the world, adding that enemies, the US in particular, are most focused on Iran's astonishing subsurface capabilities.

    Amiri underlined that significance of submarines are not just indebted to their arms and equipment, "rather the tactical issues are very important", given the geographical specifications of the waters surrounding the county.

    "For example," he stated, "if an ordinary submarines can sit in the Persian Gulf's bed it would be the worst threat to the enemy."

    "That is one of the US concerns since Iranian submarines are noiseless and can easily evade detection as they are equipped with the sonar-evading technology" and can fire missiles and torpedoes simultaneously, he added.

    "When the submarine sits on the seabed it can easily target and hit an aircraft carrier traversing in the nearby regions," Amiri reiterated.

    Earlier this month, Iranian Army Commander Major General Ataollah Salehi called on the US to avoid sending back its military ships and aircraft carriers to the Persian Gulf after Iran's naval drills forced Washington to bring one of its carriers out of the strategic region.

    Speaking on the sidelines of the naval parades in the Sea of Oman at the end of Velayat 90 massive naval drills, Salehi said that the US brought the aircraft carrier out of the Persian Gulf and the vessel passed through the Strait of Hormoz and stationed in the Sea of Oman before the start of Iran's naval drills.

    As regards Iran's reaction to the vessel's redeployment, Salehi stated, "We advise, warn and recommend them (US Navy) not to return this carrier to its previous location in the Persian Gulf."

    "We are not in the habit of repeating the warning and we warn only once," Salehi reiterated, without mentioning the name of the US aircraft carrier.

    The aircraft carrier Salehi was referring to was the USS John C. Stennis, one of the US navy's biggest vessels.

    Later, US Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman General Martin Dempsey acknowledged that Iran is able to close the Strait of Hormoz.

    "They've invested in capabilities that could, in fact, for a period of time block the Strait of Hormoz," Dempsey said in an interview aired on the CBS "Face the Nation" program.

    Late in November, the Iranian Navy expanded the fleet of its submarines after it received three more Ghadir-class submarines.

    Speaking to reporters in a press conference at the time, Iranian Army's Navy Commander Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari said that all parts of the submarines have been designed and manufactured by Iranian experts.

    Iranian commanders had earlier said that Ghadir-class submarines boosted the Navy's capability in defending the country's territorial waters.

    The submarine has been designed and manufactured according to the geographical and climate conditions and specifications of Iranian waters, according to military experts.

    The Iranian military officials said that the submarine can easily evade detection as it is equipped with sonar-evading technology and can fire missiles and torpedoes simultaneously.

    Is Iran begging for war? Right now they think they're scary, but in retrospect they are just acting tough to get attention.

    Jesus, Iran. Even if you could, that's not how you win a war. Blowing a US carrier out of the water will just cause everyone to attack them in retaliation and they can't fight our combined strength. Hell, even if the US has to fight them solo, their navy alone could bitchslap Iran's, every day, all day.

    We have the power, but not enough to fund a full out war. This is why Iran is acting tough, cause were weak due to economy problems.

    Chances are if we go to war with Iran, we won't be trying to rebuild them like we did in Iraq and Afghanistan. Devastate their military infrastructure and withdraw, Desert Storm style.

    And it won't end well for the US either. You guys are so fucking broke that you cannot even afford proper healthcare and education for your own citizens. You're at a 40 million people living in poverty.

    Seriously. These posts by Americans acting all tough just makes me laugh.

    Our poverty rate is a little over 15 percent, where'd you pull that figure from?

    inb4 people overestimate the american military.

    just because you spend so fucking much on it doesn't mean you'd be completely safe from any sort of attack ever. Iran is not as primitive as you think and nevertheless a full scale war would result in huge casualties on both sides.

    US borrowed the Swedish diesel-electric Gotland submarine in 2007 just because it was very silent. So Iran better watch out if they believe US has no experience with those subs.

    Sorry, mixed it up. It was 40 million living below the poverty line, not 40%. Fixed it.

    Canada's around 10 percent, the UK's around 14 percent and Japan's around 15.7 percent. So relatively, we're doing decently.

    That implies the US would land a million troops in Iran and not just bomb them to fuck like Iraq before the occupation.

    From what I'm reading here, 10% was the estimate made 6 years ago. You also have to take into consideration the US has like triple the population of every country you listed. (well, maybe not Japan)
