Der Spiegel: Dolphin Armed With Nukes

The German weekly Der Spiegel reports in its current issue that a months-long investigation has confirmed that the Dolphin submarines built by Germany for the Israeli Navy are capable of launching nuclear-tipped cruise missiles.

That possibility has long been assumed – and reported in this space – and there is still no official confirmation from either government. However, Der Spiegel, in Sunday’s article titled, "Secret Operation: Samson," claims experts in "Germany and in Jerusalem now confirm: They are armed with nuclear warheads."
