IRAN LAUNCHES NEW DOMESTIC BUILT STEALTH DESTROYER IN PERSIAN GULF

On Saturday Iran unveiled its first stealth destroyer in a televised ceremony wherein the warship was launched into operation in the Persian Gulf at a moment that tensions with the US continue to soar.

The Sahand stealth capable ship is also entirely Iranian-made and will be based at Iran's naval base in Bandar Abbas on the Gulf. Military officials touted its capability of deploying for five months on the seas without resupply, and cutting edge defense technology including electronic warfare capabilities, surface-to-air missiles, and torpedo launchers, and most importantly its purported ability to evade enemy radar.

The Sahand has stealth capabilities, surface-to-surface and surface-to-air missiles and electronic warfare capabilities, state TV IRNA reported.
It was made public in the launch ceremony days after Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei called on naval commanders to increase Iran's military capability and readiness to respond to acts of aggression as Iran is being targeted by both crippling US-led international sanctions and a recent uptick in encounters with US vessels patrolling the Persian Gulf.

Rear-Admiral Alireza Sheikhi, who oversaw the production of the destroyer, told the state news agency IRNA, “This vessel is the result of daring and creative design relying on the local technical knowledge of the Iranian Navy... and has been built with stealth capabilities.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is a natural outcome of the threats made by Saudi Arabia, Israel and the United States against Iran.

I mean, come on: were the Iranians just supposed to roll over and play dead, because of their alleged "existential threat" to Israel or Saudi Arabia?!?

Iran is doing what any intelligent country in the world would do, were they threatened in the way the US, Saudi Arabia, and Israel have threatened it; they are upping their ante on weapons production and scientific knowledge, with which they would hope to defend themselves, should they be attacked by any, and all of these entities.
