At the end of the last century, when the Russian Federation "agreed" to suspend the delivery of Russian-made submarines to Iran, the latter moved to create submarines of own production. Designing and building the submarines lasted for nine long years, and in 2005 Submarine Iranian production was ready for series production. PL «Ghadir» named on the honor of the Muslim holy places (either Shiite prazdnichek) Ghadir Khumm. According to various reports, the true time, Iran has from 12 to nineteen units submarine «Ghadir».

In the Iranian case, the submarine, used in the narrow waters of Persian Gulf and the Strait of Hormuz, though what the enemy will bring a lot of tough problems. It should not be forgotten that if there is a will and transfer funds, part ultra podlodkok Iran can throw the Caspian Sea.
