Kajami Class Semisubmersible Attack Craft
Gahjae Class Semisubmersible Attack Craft
Sometimes confused with the Peykaap and Tir patrol craft, a small number of Taedong class semisubmersible attack craft were obtained in the same deal with North Korea in 2002. At least 1 Taedong-B, named Kajami in Iranian service, and 2 Taedong-C, referred to as the Gahjae class, were obtained. These semisubmersible craft are armed with two torpedo tubes of unknown size, but could likely be configured to carry mines or deliver divers or other special operations forces.
A Kajami class vessel participated in naval exercises in 2006, flying the flag of the Iranian Republican Guard Corps.
