TEHRAN, Nov. 29 (Xinhua) -- Iran's Navy on Thursday added two new Ghadir-class submarines to its fleet in southern waters, official IRNA news agency reported.

The submarines are capable of launching subsurface-to-surface missiles, torpedoes and mines, IRNA said.

They are also capable of carrying personnel to the adjacent shores, it added.

The two submarines were unveiled during a ceremony attended by Iran's Navy Commander Hossein Khanzadi in the southern port city of Bandar Abbas.

The Ghadir-class submarines are designed to cruise within the shallow waters of the Gulf to protect Iran's maritime borders. Enditem
