An Iranian stealth submarine sinks before targeting a mock US carrier in an a naval exercise

In an earlier analysis I explained how Iran was building a mock up aircraft carrier to be used in future wargames to enhance the training of the Iranian Navy in damaging or sinking US aircraft carriers. This news article published on the DEBKA news site however proves that the Iranian Navy might not be as menancing as generally is believed:

A new Iranian Ghadir-class stealth mini-submarine, home-built with Chinese technology, recently sank near the Strait of Hormuz, while preparing for a Revolutionary Guards naval exercise to practice sinking or disabling a mock-up US aircraft carrier, DEBKAfile’s military and intelligence sources report exclusively.
