my understanding is that the dolphins have been through some similar sig management changes that were done on the PN Agosta 90's. The main diff being that the israelis are "rumoured" to be able to conduct nuke strikes due to being able to miniaturise their nuke weapons warshots. (ie cruise)
there were some photos of a dolphin doing cruise missile trials in the indian ocean a few years back but these are no longer able to be found.
they are a nice capable sub, able to do their business in green, grey,blue water and therefore eminently suitable for marops in the med.
i'd be more interested in knowing about changes to their ISR role as knowing the israelis, it is their major king of the battlefield (no direspect to the heavy metal land warfare advocates)
