Iran Navy officer: Tehran designing nuclear-powered subs

A senior Iranian Navy commander claimed that the country is in the initial phases of domestically designing a nuclear-powered submarine, the semi-official Fars news agency reported Tuesday.
Iran's Lieutenant Commander of the Navy for Technical Affairs Rear Admiral Abbas Zamini boasted of Iran's previous experience in designing and manufacturing submarines, according to the report.
Only a handful of states have successfully manufactured nuclear submarines, with India reportedly developing one of its own.
