"Run Silent - Run Deep" - IDF Sees Steep Rise in Submarine Operations.HT: Matzav.
The IDF’s submarine fleet has seen a sharp increase in the number and duration of its at-sea operations, with a special focus on Lebanon, according to a senior Israel Navy officer.
Some of the deployments lasted several weeks and took the submarines thousands of kilometers from Israel.
Israel has bought its top-of-the-line Dolphin submarines from Germany, with two new subs to be delivered in the second half of 2014, the INS Tanin and INS Rahav.

The new submarines have engines that don’t require surfacing to acquire new air supplies.
