Iranian Navy Equipped with Advanced Technologies.
Iran's Navy embarked on a self-sufficiency program to produce military equipment and systems following the victory of the Islamic Revolution in 1979, Sayyari reminded, and said the Iranian naval forces are now equipped with state-of-the-art technologies.
He also reiterated that the Iranian Navy is producing destroyers that are more advanced and sophisticated than the home-made Jamaran as part of its broader plans for boosting its fleets in the international waters.
Iran's first home-made destroyer, Jamaran, was launched in late February 2010. The Mowdge Class vessel has a displacement of around 14,000 tons and is equipped with modern radars and electronic warfare capabilities and is armed with a variety of anti-ship, surface-to-surface and surface-to-air missiles.
Jamaran is also equipped with different kinds of weapons, including a powerful and smart missile named 'Nour' (light).
In September, the Iranian Navy mounted a very highly advanced radar on Jamaran.
According to Iranian commanders, "Jamaran has been equipped with a kind of radar that is among the highly advanced ones in the world".
