The video shows an exercise in which the submarine's crew fires torpedoes at "enemy warships."

The Navy plans to add more sailors to its elite submarine unit and the current submarine crewmen course graduation will mark a new record in their numbers.


Graduates of the 16-month course will be given the rank of sergeant. Each has mastered a mechanical discipline of submarine operations, such as cruise control, navigation, electricity, weapons and sonar.


"The submarine – Israel's most complex marine weapon – is only as strong as its crewmen," INF Chief Admiral Ram Rotberg said Monday. "They are quality professionals with stern battle ethics."
