5 unique weapons of Cuba’s garage-built Navy | Forbes

When the Soviet Union collapsed in 1991, Cuba had to design and create their own naval ships and weapons. The results have been different to say the least, with many having unique factors. One of their submarines that we have very few pictures of is a Delfin class submarine and is believed to carry a couple torpedoes, making it one of the country’s most powerful weapons. Some of their largest warships were also originally fishing trawlers, now converted to include a helicopter landing deck. Cuba also boasts what is believed to be the smallest warship in the world, small torpedo-enabled rafts. They also have a special forces mini-sub used to quietly move small units of troops, and is believed to be based off of the Italian built Cos.Mo.S Seehorse family.
