Iranian Army Navy Commander Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari said Saturday that the Islamic Republic has added three more Ghadir-class submarines to its naval fleet, Iran's FARS News Agency reported.

"All parts of these submarines, including their body and their advanced radar equipment and defense systems have been designed and manufactured by our country's defense experts and with the help of the Defense Ministry," he said in a press conference.

According to the report, Iranian commanders have said that Ghadir-class submarines "boosted the Navy's capability in defending the country's territorial waters."
