The submarines were designed for the North Sea and they keel over in the warm med waters.

I find this extremely hard to believe. Swedish subs are made for Baltic waters, but the only thing needed to modify when they went to the Med IIRC, was improved air conditioning.

And as IM said, tell it to Israel.
