    Most of these nations whom are facing a stronger naval power fleet, prefer to built a large number of mini submarine fleet. North Korea is said to have more than 50+ low variant deisel submarines.

    do Iran make tropedoes and engine part from other country or produce them indegenous

    Iran approach is to swarm the Persian Gulf with small vessels, and try to block the waterways and take out big vessels by "kamikaze" like attacks.

    Not bad for Iran. They need numbers in persian gulf. They don't have the capability to thwart USN in blue waters or stealth.
