Iran unveils unusually colored blue submarine

Was choice of turquoise for submersible a mistake?

(Yahoo! News) It looks like the Iranian Navy really wanted people to see its new submarine. In a live broadcast on state TV on Wednesday, the Islamic Republic showed off a new Sina 7 submarine that is painted in an unusually bright turquoise blue hue.

So, why exactly would any military want to design its ship in a color that can be easily spotted ? 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.
