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.)

These subs & missiles are anything but crap.The subs are very quiet diesel electrics,rather well suited for operations in the Straits of Hormuz & Arabian Sea.

How many countries operate sub-launched anti-ship missiles with a range of 200-300kms???Only a handful & these Klub missiles reportedly will have a supersonic terminal stage,which will make their effect on impact far more deadly.

Ditto. This is much to do about nothing. Putin is just taking their money --suckers-- selling 3rd rate goods. The subs are loud, equipment is crappy, and the Iranian Navy aren't exactly known for their seafaring skills.

We'll know where everyone of them are at ALL times. Relax.

These missiles and subs are no threat to our navy ships.
