It looks like the Iranian Navy really wanted people to see its new submarine. In a live broadcast on state TV on Wednesday, the Islamic Republic showed off a new Sina 7 submarine that is painted in an unusually bright turquoise blue hue...

I do believe the Village People would be quite comfortable singing about the Iranian Navy and taking a ride in that boat.

That’s the same color as the paint in our local public swimming pool. I’ll search for Iranians when I jump off the high dive this summer.

I guess that is their attempt at manning the rails.

Do those three guys make up the entire crew? Looks like it... One to pedal, one to fire the single torpedo on board, and one to pray they don't die in their three-man blue coffin.

Holy cow, they must work in the prone position in that thing. You couldn't pay me to get in it.

Some U.S. torpedoes look to be half the length of that thing.

Could be popular with tourists in the Bahamas.

But painting it that color makes it look totally ...

I think it is a six man crew, but as other have said, you have to factor in the engine room, fuel tanks, ballast tanks, the battery, torpedo room, sonar, radio equipment etc. before you can even have empty space for the crew to move around.

I believe you may have found the origen of the design, altho’, Iran also purchased two migit subs from the North Koreans.

Just to rain on the parade of all the jokers, it is quite a bit bigger under the surface, runs on diesel/electric (that tall mast is the snorkel, which folds down into the hull behind the conning tower when submerged), and has two torpedo tubes which apparently can also launch anti-ship missiles. The crew is probably six, as noted.

My guess on the color is that it was temporarily painted like that to make it easier to see during a parade flotilla, since it really isn’t all that big and doesn’t project that far above the surface. From a distance, it’s not much bigger than a towed paravane.

The sub is like a blue pill. Just the kind of pill that slips into New York Harbor and touches off its on board nuke. You know I am right about that my friends.

The sub has a very poor design and has to surface each time one of the 3 sailors has to come out to use the bathroom.

All the navy has to do is wait until nature calls to blow them out of the water.

a parade flotilla

What's driving the Iranians to prance around like peacocks? Are they showing off to the USA or their neighbors? In recent years they've developed a very bad case of vanity. Vanity leads to envy which develops into hate which develops into war. It's the normal cycle of human evolution in progress. God must have created humans for the laughs.

In 1977, I was in a maintenance school for the SSBN (ballistic missile submarine) ESM (electronic warfare support measures)suite. In that class were three Iranians who were not otherwise cleared to even be in the building. The shah was our buddy at the time, but I never had a good feeling about that.

The US Navy does flotillas too. In the Iranians’ case, a flotilla is pretty much the only time something like one of these minisubs would be available for viewing; the rest of the time they would be hidden away, just as the US’s subs are. So seeing their sub in “flotilla” paint is only to be expected.
