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