#10 Any submarine is a danger. Doesn't matter if blue or yellow.
2 British battleships went to the bottom(in Alexandria harbor) because an attack by 2 chariots called by owners the italians "maiale"(pigs) each had only 2 men and a charge of 300kg...

#13 The Daily Mail speculates that the ship's designers mistakenly chose the color, believing it would help the craft blend in with the ocean's waters.

Apparently something was lost in the Farsi-to-Korean translation of the specs.

The Norks paint their version an olive green.

#18 *That* launches anti-ship missiles? Unless the sailors in the Iranian Navy are unusually short (like their President!), the sub is barely twice the size of an anti-ship missile.

And yeah, the comments there are hilarious.

#19 The North Koreans sunk a S. Korean _sub chaser_ with one of those things.

Maybe the camoflage will work. If it doesn't, it's just another coat of paint.
