Jerusalem, Israel ---- January 15, 2011 ...... The Israel Navy is now preparing to receive a new submarine. In the last two enlistment cycles for the IDF Submarine Flotilla Corp, there was an increase by 30 percent for combat soldiers trained for the position, a result of two new submarines acquired by Israel from Germany

This would place Israel and the IDF among a handful of countries able to deliver atomic weapons from land, sea and air.Experts agree that Israel has the world's sixth largest nuclear arsenal with some 400 warheads, deployed on subs, fighter aircraft and ground units.

In June 2002, former US State Department and Pentagon officials confirmed that the US Navy observed Israeli missile tests in the Indian Ocean in 2000, and that the Dolphin-class vessels have been fitted with nuclear-capable cruise missiles of a new design. In November 2005, outgoing German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder approved the sale of two modernized Dolphin-class submarines to Israel for a total cost of $1.27 billion. A third of the cost will be financed by the German government.
