JERUSALEM (Worthy News)-- With a possible agreement on Iran's nuclear program approaching, the Israeli navy today hosted military reporters on a tour of its latest submarine, part of an underwater fleet reportedly armed with nuclear-tipped cruise missiles that will serve as Israel's major deterrent against a nuclear-armed Islamic Republic, the Washington Free Beacon reported.
The submarine, the INS Tanin (in English, “Crocodile”) is one of five acquired from Germany in the past two decades.
According to foreign reports, cruise missiles aboard the vessels have a range of close to 1,000 miles and can carry nuclear warheads. Capable of extended stays at sea, one or more of submarines would likely always be within range of Iran.
