Is Iranian fleet ready to fight off US Navy?

33
Как transmits Iranian news agency Fars News, on Thursday, 29 on November 2018, Iran’s Navy Commander Rear Admiral Hussein Khan-zade made an official statement in which he confirmed the willingness of the forces entrusted to him to repel US Navy.


Also in it, in particular, it was noted (probably under the influence of recent events on the Sea of ​​Azov) that the Iranian fleet now has sufficient power, which allows it not only to ensure its own national security, but also to assume the functions of region-wide security and freedom of navigation throughout the Persian Gulf, the Strait of Hormuz and even the Gulf of Oman.

In this, the commander of the Iranian Navy invites all countries of the Persian Gulf region to use the capabilities of the structure subordinate to him instead of any naval forces of foreign powers (by which are meant primarily the US Navy forces operating in the region on an ongoing basis).

Is Iranian fleet ready to fight off US Navy?

Rear Admiral of the Iranian Navy Hussein Khan-zade


According to the Iranian Rear Admiral, his country is ready to offer its experience in ensuring regional naval security and supporting the freedom of navigation to all countries in the region, since "security borrowed from external states cannot last for long."

Note also that the performance of the senior officer of the Iranian Navy sounded during the launching of two Iranian-made submarines of the Kadir class, and the launch of the Iranian destroyer Sahand (the project Jamaran) was scheduled for Saturday.

True, despite the vigorous statements of the Iranian Navy command, there are serious doubts about his ability not only to resist, but even to inflict at least some serious losses on US Navy in the event of an armed confrontation between these two countries.

In particular, one of the reasons for this is the death of the Iranian destroyer Demavend, which sank without any impact from a likely enemy during a completely normal storm in the closed water area of ​​the Caspian Sea in January of this year.

      Do not brag about Iran, while Russia covers you from the vultures of Israel and the United States ..!

      And why should he boast to Iran that it is completely possible to arrange Armageddon for the entire economy of the world based on oil supplies from Saudi Arabia in the Strait of Hormuz.

          What are you doing? Bragging on behalf of the USA and Israel? laughing

          Vietnam "Soaked"? Maybe Korea was "soaked"?

          Washcloths have grown? Or just the language?

          Only Iran and Libya should not be cited as an example. And in one and the other case, the leaders were passionate with the West. These countries can only be compared with Ukraine.

          The United States has not fought for a long time. Their last war was in Vietnam. We remember the result.
          Now they are demolishing countries by political means. They know how to do with bucks instead of guns.
          And the "wars" are ostentatious - a bunch of missiles and other hype in areas where there is no resistance at all.

        The question is time. To repel US NAVY is a couple of hours, then the Persian fleet will end. Only diesels, and loud ones, will remain.

        Block the strait? Yes. But this is a matter of days to weeks. Until the coalition ensures the demolition of the main positions of the RCC. Further escorting by convoys, again, single RCC will rely only on great luck - when breaking through the escort air defense. Throw a flock of Chinese exosets will no longer be given.

        Well, what will happen to that Iran in return? They will be bombed into the Stone Age.

In this case, you need to take the example of the United States, which in order to achieve their goals expose terrorist organizations, the forces of their allies and PMCs to attack. At the same time, regular army units are entrusted with the task of installing and defending outposts in the territories seized by terrorists, financing and coordinating their further actions.

      Well, Iran is not really hiding behind other people's backs.
      The Iranian fleet is unlikely to be able to withstand the US fleet, but the Strait of Hormuz for tankers is quite capable of blocking.

        In the next topic "Genocide in the name of oil" https://topwar.ru/150556-genocid-jeto-nichto-radi-kontrolja-nad-neftju-.html the plans of the Middle Eastern monarchies are well shown, to forever exclude Iran from any possibility of influencing for the export of oil from the Persian Gulf, to build a network of pipelines bypassing. Therefore, they are fighting in Yemen in the same way that some branches of the oil pipeline and gas pipeline are planned to stretch through this country. Look at the article - there is a map of how the pipelines are going to be pulled. When the pipelines are stretched, the importance of the Iranian fleet will drop dramatically, since no one, except Iran, will need the Persian Gulf to the extent that it is in demand now.

          That is why Iran is fighting in Syria and supporting Shiites in Iraq to block pipeline routes bypassing the Strait of Hormuz. There are no fools in the Iranian General Staff.

        But, even if Iran succeeds in drowning a couple of American vessels, it will not be bad. Ideally, to sink to the bottom of an aircraft-carrying cruiser with all flying stray, but this is not an easy task.

      But Iran acts as an ally of Turkey in Syria. Turkey and Iran are trying to return to their countries the former greatness of their empires. To begin with, they divide Iraq and Syria into spheres of influence.

    In the narrows of the Persian Gulf and the Strait of Hormuz at the gunpoint of coastal batteries? The US Navy is not suicidal, after all. The purely geographical position keeps the most important communications "under the gun" of Iran. And the country is not Iraq even once. To crush "one left" - will not work ...

    The determination to defend our Homeland from the superior forces of the enemy and call a spade a spade is a matter of respect.
    This is not the cry of Russian liberal Vlasovites like Kudrin, who are ready to surrender to the mercy of the West only after hearing about the sanctions.

    No. Why should such crap be brought up for discussion? There is no basis for such a statement.

    That way and Madagascar can announce that it will ensure the security of the passage along the Mozambique Channel and will repulse any fleet in the world.

    And what will we discuss with such nonsense?

      So they lowered it. The newest is stealth. They even bought MZA from the Chinese - in the form of a stealth version of the AK-630M. Here he is in the background, in the foreground one of the two latest diesel engines - which were part of the fleet.

    In the 21st century, Anglo-Saxons and Jews revolve around Iran, like ferrets near a chicken coop.
    "I want to, and inject, and my mother does not order." In 2012, they tried to put pressure, but when the Iranians promised to actually block the entire 5th US fleet in the Persian Gulf, the Americans were quickly blown away. "Militancy" turned into sanctions and intimidation. tongue yes

    Not anymore. About 15-20 years ago it was not just possible, but even something real. Now there are a number of oil pipelines that go beyond the Persian Gulf. Their capacity may not be too large to completely replace tankers, but these pipelines are unattainable for Iran
