Israel Buys Two Subs From Germany – Can Be Used To Deliver Nuclear Weapons Maybe

Israel already has three submarines and has made a deal with Germany to buy two more. The news submarines, called Dolphin Submarines, will cost Israel $1.3 billion each and will not be delivered before 2010.

According to Associated Press reporter Ramit Plushnick-Masti, these new subs will be able to deliver nuclear weapons. This would allow Israel to provide either first strike or second strike capabilities. These new subs run off of diesel-electric propulsion systems allowing them to remain submerged for longer periods of time than the three nuclear arms-capable submarines already in Israel's fleet, according Ramit.
