Iranian and Russian Navy to hold regular exercises in the Caspian Sea


According to the statement of the Iranian Navy Commander, joint naval exercises of the Iranian and Russian Navy ships will to a greater extent contribute to raising the level of strategic and tactical cooperation between countries at sea. The exercise program is scheduled for tactical, rescue and anti-piracy joint exercises. In this case, the admiral did not give the exact date of the exercises, but said that they will be held in the "near future".

Joint exercises of the Russian Navy and Iran are held regularly. In different years, from three to five ships took part in maneuvers from the Iranian side. Autumn 2015 to the Caspian base flotilla Three ships of the Iranian Navy arrived on a visit. The group included rocket ships Joshan and Peykan and the latest Iranian-made destroyer Damavand. At the same time, the Iranian destroyer was not able to visit the port of Astrakhan, as it did not pass through the draft.

In the summer of 2017, the flagship of the Iranian Caspian flotilla, the destroyer Damavand, the Peykan missile ships, Guay-class patrol boats with artillery units, as well as high-speed patrol boats arrived to the Russian coast.

    Iranian Navy begins preparations for joint exercises with the Russian Navy in the Caspian Sea

    Well, of course it’s not bad .. Judging how Russia struck the devil in Syria from this puddle ..
    And yet it’s better to conduct exercises together somewhere near the USA and it would be nice to attract China (Tikhushnikov)))
    Near Israel is still dangerous .. But soon already!)))

      Good news. Cooperation with Iran needs to be strengthened. Moreover, ships can be transferred from the Caspian to the Persian Gulf along the Volga-Don Canal.

        that ships can be transferred from the Caspian to the Persian Gulf along the Volga-Don Canal.
        I vaguely understand the meaning of such a transfer, and most importantly, how they will pass through the Mediterranean Sea and the Suez Canal under conditions of confrontation.

          There is a long-standing desire to do without Suez. There is a project of a shipping channel from the Caspian to the Persian Gulf - they either remember or forget about it - https://topwar.ru/93007-ot-kaspiyskogo-morya-do-persidskogo-zaliva.html. There was a North-South corridor project - you need to connect the railway of Azerbaijan and Iran on a small section (Astara-Rasht) and get the route from Helsinki to the Indian port of Mumbai - the same is still being negotiated (Iranians are asking for a loan of $ 500 million .. ..). Wait and see...

              they used to say West World Theater, now more and more you hear the world has gone crazy ... so sorry ... In 2016, after loud statements, everyone began to discuss this project (as an example, the link given) ... time is the last splash in November 2018 - the message of the Iranian TV channel Press TV that Russia, India and Iran will discuss this project within the framework of the North-South international transport corridor, this project remained almost unnoticed. The Astara-Rasht railway cost about 1 billion, of which 500 million a loan from Azerbaijan is being built ... Iranian Ambassador to the Russian Federation Mehdi Sanai believes that it will be built within two years, Aliyev speaks of three years ... meetings on October 28 with the Russian delegation - "The Minister informed that the international North-South corridor (INSTC) is an important initiative of India, Russia and Iran to develop transport cooperation and expand ties with Central Asian countries. INSTC is the shortest multimodal transport route connecting The Indian Ocean and the Persian Gulf through Iran with Russia and Northern Europe.The estimated throughput of the corridor is from 20 to 30 million tons of cargo per year and will reduce time and costs by 30% to 40%. The Minister stressed that on November 23, 2018 a trilateral meeting on INSTC can resolve all issues with a view to the earliest possible commissioning of the route. " Let's wait and see .. the Iranian section of the North-South corridor in the form of a railway sooner or later, but in the foreseeable future, a canal will be built ... if we take the example of a 50-50 railway, the cost of the channel in 2016 was estimated at 10 billion who is ready to give a loan for 5 billion ... The whole world is a theater ... we will see

    It would not be bad for all the Caspian states to agree to leave only the coast guard ships in the Caspian Sea and that's it. Nobody needs the militarization of the "internal puddle".

      The Caspian flotilla transferred ships to the Black Sea along internal river routes.

      Only after the United States withdrew its naval base from Bahrain (the largest in the BV) ...
      By the way irazum don’t offer Turkey to reduce the number of naval forces in the Black Sea from 8 to 2 (like ours) and not build a ninth ..? After all
      Nobody needs the militarization of the "internal puddle".

    The news is positive.
    Joint naval exercises of Iranian, Russian and Chinese naval ships in the Persian Gulf would also not be superfluous .....

    It’s almost like a flood. Too lazy to seek, but true.

    This is good, but ideally it would be to conduct a Russian-Chinese (+ Iran is possible) naval exercises in the Atlantic or the Pacific Ocean, not far from the American border. Ideally, with the participation of the modernized monster "Nakhimov" (they would rather finish), and also "Peter the Great". And it’s very good if some submarine would receive the Zircons as soon as possible, and also held demonstration firing somewhere in the same place near the overseas “partner” enemies

      Ships preserved from the time of the Shah are unlikely to reach the Atlantic.

    Wow!!!! And what ships are you going to transfer to the Persian Gulf, dear? "Buyany-M" class "river-sea"? So they won't make it on their own, they'll have to send another tug and a tanker. And most importantly, why are they needed there. I'm not saying that "river-sea" ships in the ocean are not the best place ...
