Iran’s homegrown diesel-electric submarine Fateh (Conquerer) has been put through final tests, Defense Minister Brigadier General Amir Hatami said.

Minister Hatami told Tasnim news agency that the Iranian submarine is undergoing tests, whose results will determine when the vessel would enter service. Fateh-class submarine is expected to formally join the navy in September 2017.

The Fateh is, at approximately 130 feet long and 20 feet wide and 500 tons displacement when submerged, Iran's biggest native-built submarine so far. The submarine is equipped with an advanced sonic radar system for identifying enemy vessels and uses a missile defense system.
