The Ghadir class submarines are more of a midget submarine suited to coastal waters, they are only 29m long with a displacement of 117 tonnes with a crew of 18.  These submarines are based on North Korean Yono Class. It is thought they have a pair of normal 21"/530mm torpedo tubes, and could also fire the VA-111 rocket torpedo. There are currently 23 in the Iranian Navy though details can be hard to pick out from the Propaganda surrounding any Iranian weapons system.  

 

 

The kit

The models as there are two in the box arrive in the standard small sturdy cardboard box with a picture of one of the class moored underway. There is also a small PE fret for each boat, these provide a cradle and others parts including the prop for the sub. The model is 40mm long.

Conclusion

This is another great little model of a less well know submarine. Recommended if you want something a bit different for your 1/700 submarine collection.
