TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The Iranian Navy on Monday unveiled a number of its latest domestically-made equipment, including naval radars.
Army's Lieutenant Commander Brigadier General Abdolrahim Mousavi visited the Navy’s headquarters on Monday to unveil the naval communication projects through video conference.
The systems that came into operation include sea-based X-band and S-band radars, stationed at a number of the naval bases across the country.
Separately, Army Commander Major General Ataollah Salehi and Navy Commander Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari also unveiled a number of developing projects at a Navy construction plant.
The projects involved the manufacturing of an S-band radar, hot testing of the engine of a Mark 46 torpedo, as well as projects on the fire-control systems installed on the Peykan-class naval vessels.
Iran has in recent years made great headways in manufacturing a broad range of military equipment, including the air defense systems that use cutting edge technologies.
Tehran has repeatedly stated that its military might is defensive in nature and poses no threat to other countries.
