Israel’s new attack submarines nearing completion at German shipyard

Israel’s newest version of its Dolphin-class submarine, which is quieter than the nuclear-powered engines on American and Russian submarines, is nearing completion at Germany’s hyssenKrupp Marine Systems shipyards in Kiel.

 Three Dolphin II-class submarines, which Real Clear Defense called “part attack submarine, part nuclear strike ship and part commando taxi,” are undergoing trials in Germany before heading to the Mediterranean.

 When complete, analysts believe that the Dolphin II-class submarines will carry nuclear-tipped Popeye Turbo cruise missiles, although the Israeli government has not admitted to such claims, Real Clear Defense reported.
