    Iranian Navy Commander Urges Iran-India Closer Maritime Ties



    Iranian Navy Commander Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari called for stronger relations between Tehran and New Delhi in maritime fields.Speaking to reporters on the sidelines of a meeting with a top-ranking military delegation from India’s University of Strategic Sciences, Sayyari said Iran and India, as two influential countries in the region, can develop broad maritime relations with each other.

    Sayyari expressed the hope that Iran and India would promote their relations in a way to end trans-regional countries’ presence for safeguarding security in the northern part of Indian Ocean.He then said northern part of Indian Ocean is one of the strategic trade areas of the world due to the existence of energy routes.

    Elsewhere, Sayyari announced that the country will host navies from 45 world countries since it has received the official membership of a conference of navy commanders of Indian Ocean littoral countries in 2018, IRNA reported.
    Earlier this month, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi had expressed his country’s enthusiasm for establishing a new era of relations with Iran.

    In a meeting with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif in New Delhi, Modi said he has prepared all Indian officials for a new round of relations with Iran.The Indian premier said he was impressed by the Iranian President Hassan Rouhani’s “positive and constructive” stances in a July summit in the Russian city of Ufa.

    Modi said he has felt President Rouhani’s seriousness on the enhancement of Iran-India relations.The Indian prime minister also called for the immediate establishment of a joint commission for the expansion of bilateral relations

    Post  The Ottoman on Sat Oct 03, 2015 9:28 pm



    Iran's Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Navy has unveiled a torpedo-armed watercraft which is capable of operating both on and under water.

    The domestically-manufactured submersible watercraft, dubbed Zolfaqar, was showcased for the first time at a public exhibition on Saturday, Fars news agency reports.

    The 17-meter-long military equipment weighs about 22 tonnes and has a speed of 40 knots (more than 70 kilometers) per hour on the sea surface.

    Zolfaqar also employs a four-meter-long torpedo which can target aircraft carriers, vessels weighing up to 200 tonnes, oil platforms as well as loading and unloading docks.

    Nice looking vessel... I wonder what its tactic is...

    Would it be high speed approach and then when it starts getting fired upon it submerges and attacks with torpedos.... or does it lurk submerged near the path of targets and launch a torpedo attack and then surface and run back to base for a quick reload?

    An innovative vessel for sure

    I know others have used submersible boats (AFAIK USSR/Russia too), but only small ones for SF insertion and such.

    Actually the Soviets had a design of a seaplane that could submerge... it had a periscope and twin propeller engines with electric engines for underwater propulsion and two under fuselage torpedoes as a main armament.

    Not sure how it would have worked either... fly up and land and then submerge to fire torpedoes or lie in wait submerged... fire torpedoes and then surface and take off to escape.

    Found these drawings, but no evidence anything was actually built...

    IRIN Sahand


    * Also known as Moudge 5, it's the 3rd ship of its class to be completed after Jamaran (76) and Damavand (77)
    * Unlike previous two with their hulls made up of 29 blocks, Sahand's hull has 20 compartments which illustrates a domestic design and not one based on reverse engineering of British Saam class
    * Sahand is the first of Moudge family to utilize a stealthy design, reducing magnetic, heat and radar signatures.
    * Like its other brothers already in service, Sahand will be equipped with modern Asr phased array radar and IEI optical sensors.
    * Reportedly it will have a larger helipad.
    * Unlike Jamaran (76) and Damavand (77) equipped with two foreign-made engines, Sahand will have four Iranian-built engines.
    * Sahand will be the first Iranian warship to have variable-pitch propellers which increase maneuverability and efficiency.
    * Sahand will have enjoy longer endurance compared to previous ships and will carry twice as much armament.
    * It will join Iran's southern fleet next year

    Here are some nice pictures of Sahand's construction :

    Iranian Attack Boats Buzz US Ships in Straits of Hormuz ‘Without Incident’


    Five Iranian attack boats closely approached two US warships in the Straits of Hormuz, but the encounter was safe, routine and professional, the US Central Command (CENTCOM) told Sputnik

    US Navy forces are routinely approached by Iranian maritime forces as they operate in the region, with the majority of all interaction by the Iranians conducted in a safe and professional manner, the statement acknowledged.

    CENTCOM head Gen. Joseph Votel was on board the New Orleans at the time, CNN said in an earlier report, noting that the small Iranian craft came within 500 yards of the warship.

    The New Orleans is an amphibious transport dock warship that can carry up to 700 Marines. Such vessels are designed to transport troops into a war zone by sea, primarily using landing craft, although invariably they also have the capability to operate transport helicopters.

    ازمایش موشک کروز ضد کشتی از زیردریایی کلاس غدیر
    گزارش یک نهاد آمریکایی: ایران زیردریایی با موشک کروز ضد کشتی برای تنگه هرمز می سازد
    آژانس اطلاعات دریایی آمریکا نهاد زیر نظر وزارت دفاع آمریکا در گزارش جدیدی می گوید ایران طرح های بلند پروازانه ای برای تقویت زیر دریایی های خود بعد از رفع تحریم های نظامی در سال ۲۰۲۰ دارد. از جمله ساخت زیردریایی بعثت که توانایی حمل موشک های کروز ضد کشتی برای مقابله با کشتی های آمریکایی در تنگه هرمز را دارد. تایمز اسرائیل در گزارشی به نقل از آژانس اطلاعات دریایی آمریکا نوشت: از سال ۲۰۲۰ فشارها و بخشی از تحریم های نظامی علیه جمهوری اسلامی ایران برداشته می شود و این به تهران امکان می دهد که توان نظامی خود را تقویت کند. یکی از بخش های بلندپروازانه ایران، تقویت نیروی زیردریایی های ایران است.
    پیش از این حسن روحانی رئیس جمهوری ایران از ناوشکن جماران و زیردریایی طارق بازدید کرده بود. وی به تازگی نیز دستوری برای ساخت پیشران هسته‌ای در نیروی دریایی صادر کرد که با بازتاب هایی در غرب روبرو شده بود. گزارش آژانس اطلاعات دریایی آمریکا در ۴۴ صفحه تنظیم شده و بتازگی منتشر شده است.

    US officials say Iran has test fired Underwater launched cruise missile launch from Ghadir class submarine ASCM

    Iran attempted to launch a cruise missile from a submarine in the Strait of Hormuz on Tuesday but the test failed, two U.S. officials told Fox News.
    An Iranian Yono-class “midget” submarine conducted the missile launch. North Korea and Iran are the only two countries in the world that operate this type of submarine.
    In February, Iran claimed to have successfully tested a submarine-launched missile. It was not immediately clear if Tuesday’s test was the first time Iran had attempted to launch a missile underwater from a submarine.
