Sayyari: Iran’s Warships Equipped with Hi-Tech Systems, Ready to Face any Threat
Navy Commander Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari said Iran’s warships have been equipped with state-of-the-art technologies, adding that the home-made destroyer, ‘Damavand’, will join the country’s Caspian fleet in March.
“Iranian warships have been equipped with the most advanced technologies,” Sayyari told Fars News Agency.
Referring to the launch of Iran’s home-made Jamaran destroyer in the Southern waters 5 years ago, he said the new generation of the destroyer, Damavand, “will join the naval fleet in the Caspian Sea on March 6 in a ceremony in the presence of high-ranking Iranian officials”.
Sayyari had informed in November that Damavand enjoys more capabilities than the first home-made destroyer, ‘Jamaran’.
“The destroyer will be stronger than Jamaran in terms of defensive systems, range and operational range, radar systems, weapons, electronic warfare and communication systems,” Sayyari told reporters in Tehran in November.
He, meanwhile, announced that the same advanced systems would be mounted on Jamaran too.
Iran’s first home-made destroyer, Jamaran, was launched in late February 2010.
