BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:00 P.M.) – A recently revived Iranian naval destroyer will be fitted with a vertical launch missile system, an Iranian commander stated, as reported by the Tasnim News Agency.

According to the commander of the Iranian Navy Rear Admiral Hossein Khanzad, the domestically-made Damavand destroyer, which crashed in January, will be returning to service soon and will possess a vertical missile system.

“The destroyer has been fully revived and this has been done in 18 months,” the commander said on the sidelines of the opening ceremony of the Depth competition of the 2019 International Army Games on Kish Island in southern Iran on Monday

He went on to say that the destroyer has been equipped with advanced radar systems that allow it to reach distant targets.

“The destroyer has been equipped with new weapons and we are seeking to equip the Damavand destroyer with vertical launch missiles,” Rear Admiral Khanzadi noted.

The Damavand destroyer crashed into a jetty on January 10, 2018, killing two sailors of the Iranian Navy. The accident occurred when Damavand was docking at port in Iran’s northern province of Gilan.

She’s 1,500t, the word “destroyer” does not fit : a destroyer has at least 7,000t displacement, “frigates” start at 3,000t, she’s a “corvette”.
Considering the small size, she would need major refits to put VLS onboard.

“Not forcedly an accident, but there is stuff I won’t discuss as it’s totally classified here.”

and that very mention is a violation of whatever non-disclosure material there would have been (and there is none here, armchair secret agent). Get a life, looser…

an American F-18 crashed a couple days before that F4 and its pilot is dead, same thing happened last year over Iraq I recall. ANd the year before was full of such incidents. This stuff happen every year in every air force. And looking at you trying to turn every negligible event into some pathetically cheap and laughable teenage chest-pumping is cute to see, little student of mine 🙂

Are you able to do anything else than attacks ad-nominem? Seems not. Don’t worry, you won’t see your masters hanging to street lights : the subservient ones like you always end lynched first. I’ve just learnt that rationing has been reintroduced and meat prices have doubled. Don’t worry, being vegan is survivable. Just watching Rouhani gesturing for a lift of sanctions is very amusing, he’s even calling to the UN while how funny, the only binding decisions at UN are UNSC ones where USA can veto anything. Iran is only a loud mouthed bully against defenceless “soft targets” but it’s… Read more »

The only two points I will treat, that hateful rant of your is just not worth it, a poor retelling of mediocre tales and fantasies of an ignorant, as usual a sick genocidal mind looping in his trip on a new Nuclear Holocaust inflicted on a non-nuclear country and in a first strike doctrine that will NEVER happen anyway. “Are you able to do anything else than attacks ad-nominem? Seems not.” Absolutely, haven’t you see all the other posts where I systematically debunk your pseudo-argument point by point as noted by the audience ? Now allow me to retort :… Read more »

I also ask myself : in what this Caspian-sea based vessel could have any interest in the Gulf?
