Iranian Navy began exercises with rocket firing in the waters near the Strait of Hormuz

After the drills were conducted using an unmanned aviation Iran conducts naval exercises. The Islamic Republic is carrying out these maneuvers in the Gulf of Oman, in the water area adjacent to the strategically important Strait of Hormuz. Hundreds of tankers pass through this waterway every day. There are also ships of the 5th fleet US Navy.


Iranian sources say that the naval exercises will last for two days. They involve warships and missile boats of the Iranian Navy.

From the report:

During the maneuvers, missile firing will be carried out from the sides of ships and boats, including Makran and Zra (Zrah).

The Iranian exercises that began in the Gulf of Oman caused "concern" in some countries in the Middle East region. Of particular "concern" in the Persian Gulf countries are the statements of the Iranian naval command about the conduct of rocket firing in the aforementioned water area near the Strait of Hormuz.

For the first time in many years, the Iranian exercises with missile firing from attack drones, as well as the Iranian naval exercises in the Gulf of Oman, have not been commented on by the United States. Some time ago, the European press actually announced with annoyance that "while the United States is busy with internal squabbles, it has no time for its allies." Earlier, the United States did not allow itself to miss the Iranian military maneuvers, leaving them without comment about "an immediate response to the Iranian aggressive actions." Today, the United States clearly has no time for Iran.

At the moment there is no information about the activity in connection with the Iranian exercises of the ships of the American Fifth Fleet.

    A photo if anything of their expedition ship Shahid Rudaki - and it has nothing to do with the news at all, and was made in December 2020.

    In these exercises was hosted by another erasport-flying expeditionary base Makran.



    However, the rest of the forces cannot be seen without tears.

    Old French boats with Chinese C-802.


    And 100500 shahid boats on their last journey.

      Donavi49 would not fit into the sanctions, you see, the Persians could have built a couple of Cheetahs. Yes, there the Chinese are not asleep, if they wish, the fleet will be updated to the Persians from scratch, or some of their old corvettes will be sold inexpensively!

      In the photo, the carrier is smaller than Makran (who took part in the exercises):
      The IRGC website states that the vessel has a displacement of 12000 tons, a length of 150 meters and a width of 22 meters. As far as can be judged, the idea of ​​using the vessel is that it is a large ocean-going floating platform for various weapons, reconnaissance equipment, transportation of military cargo, etc., which can be changed depending on the need. Specifically in the footage shown, to demonstrate the potential on the deck of the vessel, a self-propelled fire launcher for the 3rd Khordad air defense system, an anti-ship missile system with Ghadir or Ghader missiles and radar for target detection, Ababil-2 kamikaze drones, patrol boats, Bell 412 helicopter, etc. were installed. d ..





      And here it is before marriage and departure to Persia - sold for less than 3 lem in ushatan state. Built in 1992 at the Visentini shipyard in Italy.

    In fact, Hormuz has the status of an international strait. And close to it to carry out rocket fire - the Iranians are at great risk

      They are taking risks, but they are also preparing for "incidents" ... at the same time - "The Gure-Jask strategic project, with the help of which oil exports will be moved from the Persian Gulf to the Gulf of Oman, will be completed before the end of the work of the current government" - President of Iran Hassan Rouhani. i.e. until June 2021 ...

    They are not masters in this strait. Any such rocket fire in international waters is fraught with danger. Now they just do not have enough for their rocket to stick into the side of some tanker. And if he also drowns in the international channel, Iran will be eaten by neighbors plus "players" from Europe and America.

      Yes, they do not care. They knocked down the horses and don't blow a mustache. And they don't care about someone's tanker. They are already on the edge.

    Well then they are masochists. Normal, adequate leaders of the country, finding themselves in such a peak state, try not to irritate the environment. These same people spit on everyone. Once they can "spit", the second, the third - they will spit on the fourth. Then they can drown in saliva

      They are already being bullied all the time. Simply because they have a lot of oil and gas and don't like Jews very much. They do not kneel in front of the yusks, like minke whales in front of blacks.

        Just for having a lot of oil and gas ..


        They are scandalized for destabilizing the situation and overseeing terrorism in the region. Taking into account the deplorable situation in the economy and internal opposition, holding such "events" as these exercises is like shooting yourself between your fingers with a brada.

    So you swing your ax, but yell, "don't touch me, I'm psychic" and that's it. And after all, they doubt, and are afraid to come close. And if you start talking about international law, humanism and the common good, all of yourself, carefully shaved, perfumed, cleanly washed in a tailcoat, talk about international law, humanism and the common good, then they will be sent to hell. And they will giggle behind my back. Paradox! winked
