Russia will equip Iranian Submarines with Missiles
India-Defence ^

Posted on 07/06/2005 12:08:22 AM PDT by Srirangan

Quoting a report from the Second International Naval Show (IMDS-2005) in St. Petersburg.

Moreover, Kommersant found out that Rosoboronexport is negotiating with Iran about repair and modernization of Iranian submarines. Iran has three submarines of Project 877EKM that were supplied by Russia in 1992 (Russian name of the sub B-219, Iranian—901 Tareq), in June 1993 (B-224, 902 Noor) and in November 1996 (B-175, 903 Yunes). It was expected that all the major components that already exceeded their life expectancy will be replaced. Also, the new anti-ship missile complex Club-S with the target distance of 200 km will be installed on these subs. The refurbishing of each sub would be done under the contract which costs anywhere from $80 to $90 million. Originally it was expected that the refurbishing will be done in Zvezdochka Co (Severo-Dvinsk) but Admiralty Shipyards are also fighting for the contract.

No they are smart. Putin knows he can't win a war against the U.S. so he is busy arming our enemies who will have the job of attacking us while Putin sits and drinks his vodka.

Russians can't be trusted - they will take handouts and stab America in the back at the same time.

Personally I think we should quietly take out their submarines in deep water. Leave no time for any reports back home. They simply disappear never to be heard from again. Old Russian subs and all...

Problem solved.

I can. Once a commie always a Commie. Seriesly though Putin obviously thinks he can play the US off against it's various enemies, sooner or later he'll have to pay the piper tho. Think China in that respect.

Either that or they just aren't thinking at all. Could be either.

That Putin is a dirty underhanded Soviet. He's playing the whole ME against us. Chechnia is just a show. It could all backfire against him, Or he could use the ME to sweep right through Europe, the lifelong Soviet dream.
A biblical revelation comes to mind, which is a scary thought.

Gore Alleged to Have Violated Law He Authored

Senate to Probe Vice President's

Secret Deals on Russian Arms to Iran

On Wednesday, October 25, the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations will begin hearings to probe recent press reports that Vice President Al Gore and then Russian Prime Minister Victor Chernomyrdin made a secret agreement five years ago in which the Vice President promised that the Clinton Administration would not enforce a U.S. law requiring sanctions for Russian weapons sales to Iran.

The law referenced above is the 1992 Iran-Iraq Non-Proliferation Act (P.L. 102-484), sponsored by then Senator Al Gore, along with Senator John McCain. This law requires the President to impose sanctions on countries that sell advanced weaponry or assist in nuclear weapons programs in countries sponsoring terrorism. Russian cooperation with Iran's nuclear program was a major concern behind enactment of that legislation.

Yep, but in due time. Those subs and those missles are crap. 200km range....pfffftt!

They will be nada to our subs and be taken out quickly. I guess it's a bad sign of things to come, perhaps, but this is nuttin' (regional threat only, and well within region's defenses).

This is so minimal, I occurs to me that maybe Russia told us, or that we don't even care at this point, except to keep track.

Even nuked up, the subs are still only a regional threat, and somehow I think their "threat" is more to Iran than anyone else. (In that, at some point, we're going to step on Iran's nasty atomic throat.)

Russian KILO-class diesel submarine

CLUB (KLUB, KLAB) [SS-NX-27]

91RE1

54E1

The Club system is a family of anti-ship, anti-submarine and land attack missiles with variants for delivery from surface ships and submarines. The version intended for the Russian Navy is reportedly designated Kalibr. Designed by OKB Novator in Yekaterinburg, the Club system was publicly displayed at the Ural Expo-2000. The Club system design is based on technology from Novator's earlier 3M10/RK-55 Granat [NATO designation SS-N-21 'Sampson'] cruise missile and RPK-2 Vyuga [NATO designation SS-N-15] ASW missile. The direct predecessor of the 3M54E cruise missile (the anti-ship component of the Club system), the 3M51 Alfa, was first displayed in 1993 at arms conventions in Abu-Dhabi and Zhukovskiy (MAKS-93).

As of April 2002 India was the only customer of the Club system, which is being installed on the Indian Navy's Russian-built frigates and submarines. China and Iran have also expressed interest in purchasing the Club system as part of potential upgrade programs for their Russian-built submarines.
