TEHRAN – The Iranian defense minister said on Saturday that it is likely that the Navy will take delivery of a new domestically manufactured submarine, named the Fateh, on May 24. 
 
Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan told the Fars News Agency that the required tests have been carried out on the submarine and its faults have been identified and repaired. 
 
The 600-ton submarine is of the semi-heavy class. The submarine, equipped with various advanced equipment including torpedoes and sonar systems, can operate in the depth of 200 meters beneath the water surface for almost five weeks.
