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.

If they sink our carrier we'll sink their battleship.
Why is Iran basically saying "Come at me Bro?" to the U.S. It wont end well for them...
Good luck with that Iran.
I see a very destroyed Iran in the near future.
Oh silly Iran, why do you keep making "threats" to the US?
Do it Iran, I dare you, I double triple dog dare you.
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.
I get the feeling that war is inevitable.
Not another war... the US does not have the economy to back up fighting for this many years.
[QUOTE=Rombishead;34276378]Not another war... the US does not have the economy to back up fighting for this many years.[/QUOTE] 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.
"US also declares it can sink all of Iran with ease"
Sinking of a Multi-Billion dollar US warship leads to swift kick in the nads by tactical nuke for Iran...
Do it then
[QUOTE=Rombishead;34276378]Not another war... the US does not have the economy to back up fighting for this many years.[/QUOTE] 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.
[QUOTE=VOSK;34276285]Why is Iran basically saying "Come at me Bro?" to the U.S. It wont end well for them...[/QUOTE] 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.
Iran is acting like a free-version of North Korea now.

You're at a 40% poverty rate. Seriously. These posts by Americans acting all tough just means me laugh.[/QUOTE] Our poverty rate is a little over 15 percent, where'd you pull that figure from?
[QUOTE=Gordy H.;34276519]Our poverty rate is a little over 15 percent, where'd you pull that figure from?[/QUOTE] You know %15 is still massive?

Everybody involved would be worse off if there was a war.
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.
I don't understand why a shit country like Iran feels the need to make any submarines at all. What possible use could they have for submarines?
I'm gonna laugh if Iran has a secret weapon and destroys the U.S armed forces. Somehow.
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.
[QUOTE=Gordy H.;34276519]Our poverty rate is a little over 15 percent, where'd you pull that figure from?[/QUOTE] Sorry, mixed it up. It was 40 million living below the poverty line, not 40%. Fixed it.
Keep dreaming, Iran... keep dreaming
See, even Israeli is saying it.
[QUOTE=Zacca;34276552]I'm gonna laugh if Iran has a secret weapon and destroys the U.S armed forces. Somehow.[/QUOTE] It isn't impossible.
[QUOTE=AngryChairR;34276549]I don't understand why a shit country like Iran feels the need to make any submarines at all. What possible use could they have for submarines?[/QUOTE] So they can defend themselves from war-monging asshole countries?
