Tehran, Dec. 8 (ANI): Naval commanders in Iran have built over 9,000 "suicide" speedboats that contain deadly explosives engineered into their hulls.
The vessels - to patrol the Persian Gulf where UK forces operate - will be piloted by extremist "martyrs", the Sun reports.
Around 30,000 kamikaze captains are being trained to steer the ships, a source claimed.
There are plans to build 15,000 of the six-metre vessels. Their C4 explosives go off when rammed into larger ships.
An Iranian defector asked to design the crafts revealed the secret plot after fleeing the country. (ANI)
