TEHRAN (Press Shia Agency) – The Iranian Navy on Tuesday unveiled a number of new systems and projects for manufacturing military equipment including naval radars, simulators, and torpedoes.
The new achievements went on display at a ceremony in the Navy’s headquarters in Tehran, attended by Navy Commander Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari, Deputy Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Brigadier General Mousavi, and several other ranking commanders.
They include two homegrown systems for simulation of physical damage to naval vessels and one for training survival skills at sea.
Another project, dubbed Mersad, features production of components of Mark 46 torpedo.
One of the major products put on display at the ceremony is a fire-control system paired with weapons mounted on missile-launching vessels, including Jamaran-class destroyers.
The Navy also unveiled a radar system known as “Sea Shield”, a modified version of local radars integrated into a network.
The Navy commander unveiled another project, which includes an industrial pool for dynamic testing of watercraft.
Iranian military experts and technicians have in recent years made great headways in manufacturing a broad range of indigenous equipment, making the armed forces self-sufficient in the arms sphere.
Tehran has repeatedly stated that its military might is defensive in nature and poses no threat to other countries.
