Its going to be diesel/electric so no when its stopped its going to be as quiet as any western nations nuclear submarine. If not quieter.

Only when it moves will it be noisy.

What great deal the Russians and N.Koreans sold this sub to the Iranians for only 100 billion and two million barrels of crude, what a buy!
Besides all that it carries 6 .22 rifles fully loaded and 8 suicide bombers taped to one another.

Close but not quite. Only when it runs on battery power will it be quite. It can move on battery power but the range is limited. These are the perfect weapon for use in the Persian Gulf. The Gulf is shallow. Makes using a nuke boat tough in the Gulf.

Quiet until the call to prayer is broadcast throughout the boat.

Seriously,

It'll show up like a Kmart bluelight special on active sonar.

Moving or not it ain't gonna make a lick of difference. From what I can tell, it looks to be made out of steel. Do you know what happens when sonar hits steel?
