Iranian fleet may lose Damavand frigate

36
Iranian resources have spread a new photo of the frigate Damavand, which 10 January was thrown out by a storm on a breakwater in the region of Iran’s main naval base in the Caspian Sea, Bender-Enzeli, reports bmpd.




“Judging from the photograph, the ship over the past days not only was not removed from the stones, but in fact partially sunk into the sea, and, apparently, was flooded in the greater part of the hull. Moreover, a clear hull fracture in the aft part is noticeable, which forces us to conclude that the frigate is almost lost, ”the material says.

If in the near future the ship is not removed from the stones, then it is likely to be completely destroyed.

According to official data, as a result of the accident at Damavand, three crew members were killed and another one was missing.

Damavand (board number 77) was the largest warship of the Iranian Navy on the Caspian Sea. It was built by the Iranian Shahid Tamjidi Marine Industries (STMI). Transferred the fleet in March 2017 of the year.

Damavand is one of three ships built to date under the Mowj program (a modified copy of the British-built frigates of the Vosper Mk 5 project from the beginning of the 1970-s).

        It is not yet clear how the situation in the Caspian will continue to develop, it is not known what will come to Turkmenbashi’s head, and the fact that the “closest friends” of the Kazakhs are switching to the Latin alphabet doesn’t tell you anything? And we better have Iran in our allies. And I expect some kind of tricks from Baku rather than from Tehran.

        Well, for starters, let me ask, and from whom is our fleet defending itself there? Well, for you to think.
        [/ quote] At first glance, Nursultan Nazarbayev is Russia's most faithful ally in Central Asia; Kazakhstan, along with Russia, participates in all integration structures in the former USSR: the Customs Union, the Common Economic Space, the EAEU, the Collective Security Treaty Organization and the Shanghai Cooperation Organization. However, at the same time, Astana is deepening cooperation with the Pentagon. The other day in Washington, the parties concluded a five-year plan of military cooperation for 2018-2022. According to one version, the document considers the possibility of creating a US Navy base in the Caspian port of Aktau. [Quote]
        The link is a curve, just hammer in - how could an American base in the Caspian appear.

        In the Caspian lake?

        Lake. Have you forgotten geography lessons at a Soviet school, or have you already fallen from Russia to Israel?
        Caspian Sea - the largest lake on earthlocated at the junction of Europe and Asia called the sea because of its size. The Caspian Sea is a closed lake, and the water in it is salty, from 0,05 ‰ near the mouth of the Volga to 11 — 13 ‰ in the southeast. The water level is subject to fluctuations, at present - about −28 m below the level of the World Ocean. The area of ​​the Caspian Sea is currently about 371 000 km², the maximum depth is 1025 m.

    Damavand (tail number 77) was the largest warship of the Iranian Navy on the Caspian Sea.

    What the hell are Iranian ships like the frigate in the Caspian? Against whom, the Navy of Turkmenistan?
    It's a pity the boat on this site wrote about him ....
    “The main armament of the Demavend frigate is the 4 Noor / Ghader anti-ship missile launcher (Iranian copy of the C-802 and its upgraded longer-range version), 2 Mehrab anti-aircraft missile launchers (copy of the SM-1), 2x3 324-mm torpedo tubes, "Fajr 76 mm control unit (copy of the Italian Oto Melara 27 / 76 Compact), Fath 62 control unit (copy of Bofors L / 40) and, presumably, 70 lightweight single-barrel 2-mm installations."
