Iran has launched its most advanced military vessel which has radar-evading stealth properties and can sustain voyages lasting five months without resupply.

From https://yenicag.ru/dva-novykh-yesminca-popolnyat-vmf-irana/embed

"The destroyer of a new generation of class Moudge and the destroyer of the third generation "Jamaran" will join the Iranian Navy in the Persian Gulf on December 1, 2018. This was stated by Iranian Navy Commander Rear Admiral Khanzad, Iran.ru reports.

The first-generation lead destroyer, Jamaran, was launched in Iran in 2010.

Destroyers are equipped with torpedoes and electronic radar. The destroyer has a length of 94 meters and a weight of more than 1,500 tons.

The second generation of the destroyers Jamaran-2 was launched in 2013.

The ships of the second generation at a speed of 30 knots per hour.

Earlier, two Qadir class submarines were put into operation, capable of launching rockets, torpedoes and mines from under water. In addition, the Southern Fleet of the Navy of the country received the submarine Ghadir, the strategic submarine of the next generation Fateh and the destroyer Sahand.

According to Khanzadi, in a few months, Dena class destroyers and another Jamaran class destroyer will be rebuilt and replenish the Navy."

Looks like it has only one gun. There may be other smaller ones. What about it's AA capabilities?

"Jamaran 2 is powered by a 20,000-horsepower engine with a speed of 30 knots and has the capability to carry helicopters, different surface-to-surface and surface-to-air missiles, advanced artilleries and torpedo system. It is also equipped with an electronic war system.

The third generation of the destroyer, "Sahand", with a power of two times more than the Jamaran destroyer,..."

I was thinking the same thing. Looks like a slightly upgunned USCG "Cutter".

Looks like a Type 21 from the 70's.

The resemblance is uncanny... But would the Type 21 be considered a "Third Generation" (whatever that means) ship platform in today's standards? You don't think the Iranian leadership might be playing up their force capability now, do you?

Sure it does. If it never leaves port (like most of the rest of their 'navy'), it would have unlimited fuel supply.

Reminds me of the story of the Texas rancher bragging about the size of his ranch to a native acquaintance: "I can climb in my truck and drive for five hours without leaving my property!" to which his friend replies "I had a truck like that once..."


The Iranian destroyer rather reminds me of a Perry class frigate...

When I saw there was a post from MakeeLearn about an "advanced" Iranian destroyer, part of me was expecting a picture like this.

Hi, The gun mount on that frigate (hull#76) is a Iranian copy of the Mk-76 oto Melara. The same gun I was trained on in USN (FFG 22 and 40) 76mm DP fires up to 80 rounds per minute

Depending on how good it's ASW is, it will cost just one torpedo to sink.

Interesting how they mask the radar antenna by putting it behind the lattice foremast. They do understand that stealth capability means that OTHER radars can't detect them, rather than them not detecting anything?

If radar is working you are not stealth anymore even with those so called low detectability ones.

I know that - I was just juxtaposing the stealth concept to things their radar should be detecting but are masked by the mast - i.e. they made everything ahead of them "stealthy". Could be a problem in the Strait of Hormuz on a foggy night.

Which is less expensive, a Mk. 48 / Mk. 48 ADCAP or a Mk. 84 / BLU-117? The thing will be spending a goodly chunk of its time pierside.

Well 1275 psi finished his Yamato model so maybe he built that frigate in his garage.

Just more scrap metal for the bottom of the gulf when it comes up against the F-35.

This is much more significant:

All this needs to be seen in the local context. Iran has to compete with her regional opponents, and it has the navy to do this reasonably well. The Persian Gulf is a horrible bit of ocean to try and operate in - there's a reason why the Iranian Navy love fast attack craft and mine warfare.
