Iranian naval forces plan to stage a large-scale drill in the Indian Ocean to boost and put on display the country’s military prowess, a senior commander says.

The maneuver will be held this winter within the perimeters of Iran's southern territorial waters and high seas, Deputy Navy Commander for Coordination Rear Admiral Hamzeh Ali Kaviani told IRNA on Saturday.
He added that the Navy's state-of-the-art equipment, including two Ghadir-class submarines that recently joined Iran's naval fleet, would take part in the drill.
The two Ghadir-class submarines, capable of launching subsurface-to-surface missiles, torpedoes and mines, joined Iran's naval fleet on November 29.

The Ghadir-class submarines are designed to cruise within the shallow waters of the Persian Gulf to ensure peace and security of Iran's maritime borders.
Kaviani further said that various destroyers, including Sahand, would also take part in the Navy's military exercise.
On December 2, Iran launched its most advanced military destroyer, Sahand, which has radar-evading stealth properties and can sustain voyages lasting five months without resupply.

The vessel has a flight deck for helicopters, torpedo launchers, anti-aircraft and anti-ship guns, surface-to-surface and surface-to-air missiles and electronic warfare capabilities.
The Sahand is the third of Mowj-class frigates built by Iran after the Jamaran and the Damavand, but its enhanced operational capabilities and size make it twice stronger in terms of offensive and defensive features.
In February 2017, Iranian naval forces held a large-scale maneuver, code-named Velayat 95, north of the Indian Ocean.
The exercises were held in an area of 2 million square kilometers, spanning the Strait of Hormuz, the Sea of Oman, north of the Indian Ocean and the Bab-el-Mandeb Strait.
Surface and subsea vessels and naval helicopters were deployed in operational formations to carry out missions across the waters.
The drill also involved special forces stationed across the Makran coastal strip on the Sea of Oman to rehearse defending Iranian waters.
Advanced radars, sonar systems and domestically-manufactured chaff dispensing systems used to distract radar-guided missiles were also being tested in the drill.
In recent years, Iran has made major breakthroughs in its defense sector and attained self-sufficiency in producing important military equipment and hardware.
Iran has also conducted major military drills to enhance the defense capabilities of its armed forces and to test modern military tactics and state-of-the-art army equipment.
The Islamic Republic maintains that its military might poses no threat to other countries, stating that its defense doctrine is merely based on deterrence.

TEHRAN (FNA)- An exhibition on the latest naval technological achievements and developments opened in Tehran on Saturday at the Navy’s Tehran Headquarters.
Navy Commander Rear Admiral Hossein Khanzadi and Army Deputy Commander for Coordination Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari were the special guests attending the today’s opening ceremony of Iran’s exhibition of naval technological achievements and developments.
Electronic warfare systems, radio systems, wireless equipment, and defense systems applied in drones and naval destroyers are showcased during the event.
The equipment used in the domestically-manufactured Ghadir-class submarines are also put on display. Unveiled earlier this month, Ghadir-class submarines are capable of launching subsurface-to-surface missiles, torpedoes and mines joined Iran's naval fleet.
Scale models of future naval vessels and destroyers designed by Navy’s Self-Sufficiency Organization are also present in the exhibition.
The event will go on till the end of the current Iranian year (March 20, 2019).
Iran has made major achievements in manufacturing different weapons and military equipment.
In relevant remarks in mid-November, Rear Admiral Khanzadi underlined that the country's experts had decreased the time needed for manufacturing destroyers to less than two years, adding that a new destroyer and a submarine would be delivered to his forces soon.
"Today, we enjoy the capacity to build destroyers in a timespan of less than two years and we are making efforts to reduce it to less than one year," Khanzadi said in an interview with the Arabic-language al-Alam news channel.
He added that a new home-made destroyer named Sahand that carries helicopters, and a new domestically-manufactured submarine named Fateh would join the Iranian navy in the near future.
"Fateh will be a surprise for the trans-regional threats and they (the enemies) should wait for its delivery to the Islamic Republic's Navy," the top commander of the Navy said.
Late in July, Rear Admiral Khanzadi announced that the construction jobs and naval tests on the home-made destroyer, Sahand, were also being accomplished, adding that it would be put into operation by the end of this fall along with Dena.
"Fateh submarine which is the first mid-class submarine built by the Islamic Republic of Iran will also be unveiled soon," Rear Admiral Khanzadi said.
He also referred to efforts to overhaul Damavand, a destroyer which sunk in the Caspian Sea in January after it suffered damages during the stormy weather of Anzali Port in Northern Iran, and said overhaul of the giant vessel would end by the yearend "and it will have the same, and even more, capabilities in less than two years".

Iran to Build Trimaran Destroyer


TEHRAN (FNA)- The Iranian navy plans to manufacture a home-made trimaran (with three hulls in parallel) destroyer named Safineh to be used in asymmetric coastal warfare and rapid reaction operations.
The blueprint of the heavy vessel which is 100 meters long and enjoys the trimaran technology was unveiled on Saturday.
Also, low hydrodynamic resistance in high speed and a floating propulsion system appropriate to the needed corresponding dimensions and speed are among other features of Safineh.
The warship also has a large deck, twice as big as a single-hull vessel of the same tonnage, and it can carry all types of helicopters operating in the Iranian Navy, including RH.
The trimaran vessel is still in the research phase in the Iranian Navy.
Iran has made major achievements in manufacturing different weapons and military equipment.
Last Saturday, Iran delivered its most advanced home-made destroyer, Sahand, to the naval forces in the Persian Gulf.
Sahand destroyer was launched in Bandar Abbas port city in a ceremony participated by Iran's army commander, navy commander and deputy defense minister.
The Iranian Navy announced late 2013 that it planned to equip its (then) under-construction Sahand destroyer with more advanced weapons and electronic war systems than its first generation destroyer, Jamaran.
“The first feature of Sahand is that its radar-evading capability has increased up to 30% and the form of its hull makes its detection by radars more difficult,” Head of the Self-Sufficiency Jihad of the Iranian Navy Rear Admiral Ali Qolamzadeh told FNA at the time.
He said that the volume of Sahand’s store, deposit and stock rooms had increased in a way that it could continue sailing distances twice farther than what Jamaran could traverse.
“Also the number of its radar and weapons system has at least been doubled and new electronic war systems have been mounted on it,” Qolamzadeh said.
He said that the Navy would also mount its new long-range phased-array radar system, named ‘Asr’, on Sahand if no newer radar system is made in the country until the destroyer is prepared for mission.
The destroyer is also able to journey across the faraway oceans for 150 days along with a logistic vessel.

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian Army Deputy Commander Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari announced on Saturday that the country's Naval forces will soon be equipped with a new home-made warship and a newly-developed submarine.
"Dena warship and Fateh submarine will join the Navy in the near future," Rear Admiral Sayyari told reporters in Tehran.
He stressed that the US sanctions against Iran have proved futile as the country has been able to build, overhaul and upgrade different types of vessels, systems and equipment.
"We declare that we are using the most advanced possibilities to supply the needed equipment in the sea and we can have the best type of mission in the sea with these possibilities," Rear Admiral Sayyari said.
Iran has made major achievements in manufacturing different weapons and military equipment.
Two new indigenized Qadir-class submarines joined the Iranian Naval fleet in the Southern waters of the Persian Gulf last week.
The submarines which are capable of launching subsurface-to-surface missiles, torpedoes and mines were unveiled during a ceremony at the Southern Iranian port city of Bandar Abbas.
Iran’s Navy Commander Rear Admiral Hossein Khanzadi attended the ceremony which was held on the occasion of the Navy Day.
The Qadir-class submarines are designed to cruise within the shallow waters of the Persian Gulf to ensure peace and security of Iran's maritime borders.
Also, last Saturday, Iran delivered its most advanced home-made destroyer, Sahand, to the naval forces in the Persian Gulf.
Sahand destroyer was launched in Bandar Abbas port city in a ceremony participated by Iran's army commander, navy commander and deputy defense minister.
The Iranian Navy announced late 2013 that it planned to equip its (then) under-construction Sahand destroyer with more advanced weapons and electronic war systems than its first generation destroyer, Jamaran.

The destroyer is also able to journey across the faraway oceans for 150 days along with a logistic vessel.
Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei in a meeting with the Navy officials and commanders late in November said that delivering Sahand destroyer and Fateh and Qadir submarines to the Naval forces heralded possibility for further progress.

All is fair in love and war, or when you want to do a little scaremongering. Reuters sounded the alarm on Iran’s efforts to boost the range of its missiles, while completely missing what missiles they were.
The story ran by the news agency on Wednesday cited Iran’s Brigadier General Aziz Nasirzadeh as saying: “One of our most important programs is increasing the range of missiles and ammunition,” and “We don’t see any limitations for ourselves in this field.”
Sounds scary? Sure, because, Reuters added, the Iranian military say the range of their missiles is 2,000km and it is enough to target “US bases in Afghanistan, the United Arab Emirates, and Qatar, plus US aircraft carriers in the Gulf.” It’s so scary that the US deemed it a good reason to pull out of the 2015 nuclear agreement with Iran.
The only problem with this leap of logic is that General Nasirzadeh leads Iran’s Air Force (which Reuters did mention) and that he was speaking about Iranian air-to-air missiles (which Reuters omitted). Air-to-air missiles are fired by aircraft and hit aircraft, not “bases in Afghanistan and aircraft carriers in the Gulf.”
And it just so happens that Iran’s Air Force is not the scariest part of its military. It mostly consists of US-made aircraft, which the country received back when it was led by Washington’s buddy, the Shah. This year’s big achievement for the military arm is that now Iran is mass producing the Fakour-90 long-range air-to-air missile.

Iranian Air Force Commander has confirmed that they are working on increasing the range of the Force’s missiles.
The Iranian Fars News Agency quoted on Tuesday Brig Gen. Aziz Nasirzadeh as confirming that the Islamic Republic “does not see any restrictions in this regard.” He added: “The air force must have high deterrence capabilities.”
Nasirzadeh added: “Iran has now high capabilities in the missile field, and our defence industries are producing missiles owned by a limited number of countries in the world.”
He continued: “We are currently working on increasing the range of air-to-air missiles, and we have done great work in this regard, as well as with regards to updated Tomcat or Phantom fighter jets. We have also carried out basic works in the field of air-to-air, air-to-surface, and surface-to-surface equipment.” He pointed out that “we usually do not announce these capabilities, and we test them in various manoeuvres and exercises instead.”

His remarks come few days after the announcement of US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo that “the Iranian regime fired a medium-range ballistic missile that can carry several warheads,” and the US minister’s rejection of such an act which violates Resolution No. 2231 issued by the United Nations Security Council.
It is noted that Resolution No. 2231 issued by the UN Security Council in July of 2015 is related to the support of the nuclear agreement reached between Iran and the major powers in the same month.
Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Ghasemi addressed Pompeo saying: “It is funny and ironic that you are based on a UN resolution from which you have withdrawn and violated it unilaterally and individually, and then you have tried to urge other countries to veto it and issued threats against those who are against this position.”
US President Donald Trump withdrew last May unilaterally from the nuclear deal, but the rest of the signatory parties to the agreement have confirmed their adherence to it.

I have so much respect for this Men

Iran’s Navy commander says the country is set to unveil new defense achievements, including a destroyer and a submarine, next week.

[Image: e76aab1d-c2b7-4cb4-97d9-5cdda490e695.jpg]

“Sahand Destroyer and Fateh Submarine are to be unveiled over the next week,” Rear Admiral Hossein Khanzadi told a news conference on Wednesday, Fars News Agency reported.

The destroyer, he said, could carry large helicopters as well as missile defense systems and fighter jets.

The indigenously manufactured medium-class submarine “would serve as a surprise for the Islamic Republic’s enemies with its special capabilities,” he said.

The commander further played down the impact of US sanctions on Iran’s naval industry.

The country has been successfully weathering sanctions for more 40 years now, Khanzadi said, noting that the measures had “taught us to stand on our own feet and not to depend on other powers for our security.”

The commander also hailed increasing coordination between the Navy and the naval forces of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guard Corps (IRGC).

The dual forces, he said, were considered to be Iran’s “strong fist” at sea.

Khanzadi also said, “There is no such thing as insecurity in the Persian Gulf and Strait of Hormuz, and the IRGC Navy’s has successfully helped secure the Persian Gulf, preventing the occurrence of any incidents in the waters."

The waters under the Islamic Republic’s command are fully protected and secure without any outside help, noted the commander.

Iran would maintain its friendly ties with those countries which refrain from mischief and use their naval presence only towards ensuring security, said the official.

“Should the presence of foreign forces endanger regional security, there will be no need for their presence,” he noted.

The commander then hailed Iran’s self-sufficiency in providing its required naval defense equipment, saying it could even provide such hardware to regional and extra-regional players.
