    ".... Maybe they will order some such ships from Russia. They can then just put mobile launchers on them like on this one......"

    Good idea, to buy good second hand freight ships, not order new ones. And convert them.  At fraction of cost of building specialist vessel or buy it. This way a fleet of tens or a hundred can be built up real quick.


    "..... Not as effective as a real warship but it can carry quite a powerful stock of weapon to deal with lonely ships........"


    Not if you have numerical superiority. And this can be achieved by converting existing ships. And how many ships do you know that can launch mini- Subs? Maybe 4 to 6 of them? Extend range of mini-subs, to cover choke points like Bab-el- Mandab or coast of South Africa to Antarctic? The subs can sit and listen for weeks , and get picked up later.

    Iran needs to develop tech in all areas. Ability to build all equipment. Once technical knowhow achieved, then with Russia and China, all contracts can go to tender. The one with lower cost and good quality, gets picked. In open fair market. So it could be that a product gets built in three different places. A little like Euro fighter project.

    Iran’s deploys 71st naval fleet to international waters

    BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:45 P.M.) – The 71st flotilla of the Iranian Navy set off for high seas to safeguard maritime routes used by Iranian vessels in international waters, specially in the Gulf of Aden.

    The new fleet which left Iran’s southern waters on Saturday consists of the home-made Alborz destroyer and helicopter-carrier warship named Khark.

    Meanwhile, the 70th fleet of warships of the Iranian Navy returned to Bandar Abbas in southern Iran after completing its mission in free waters.

    Iranian Navy’s 70th flotilla of warships, comprising of Sablan destroyer and Lavan logistic-combat warship, was welcomed by Commander of the Navy’s first zone Admiral Jafar Tazakkor in a ceremony in Bandar Abbas.

    The 70th flotilla of the Navy returned to the country after days of sailing and fulfilling missions and establishment of security for the Iranian cargo ships in the Gulf of Aden and Bab al-Mandab Strait.

    Addressing the ceremony, Admiral Tazakkor said that monitoring and identification of foreign vessels in the international waters along with safeguarding Iran’s interests are among the important responsibilities of the Iranian fleets of warships.

    “We will not compromise our interests and are not joking with any foreign country and force in the region and outside the region. The security of our interests is our redline,” he underlined.

    In recent years, Iran’s naval forces have increased their presence in high seas to secure naval routes and protect merchant vessels and oil tankers against pirates.

    In line with international efforts to combat piracy, the Iranian Navy has also been conducting anti-piracy patrols in the Gulf of Aden to safeguard the vessels involved in maritime trade, specially the ships and oil tankers owned or leased by Iran.

    Would be interesting... the main rotor on a helicopter is generally its centre of gravity and the source of the force that lifts the whole vehicle, so in theory you could put a lifting ring on the top of the central point of the main rotor which you could use a cable and hook and crane to lift the helicopter using a crane.

    Failing that you could put lifting points on the fuselage so the cables can reach down between the rotor blades (when the helicopter is being lifted the rotor blades wont be spinning).

    That would mean you could fit a large crane on this ship and lift helicopters off the deck and put in on the rear part of the ship... perhaps with main rotors folded for compact storage of lots of helicopters and drones, or to access a workshop for repairs or maintenance, or to just operate with a lot more helicopters without needing aircraft lifts.

    You could also use the crane to lift material off ships coming along side including munitions or food or parts or anything at all.

    It might even be possible to carry something like TOR that could be lifted out on to the deck for self defence... or on the rear of the ship where they could operate too.
