Iranian ships approach US coast

Iranian ships approach US coast



Iran claims its naval ships fleet approaching the shores of the United States. Vessels move along the eastern part of the African coast, and should go to the Atlantic Ocean in the region of South Africa. But the Pentagon is skeptical of Iran, and does not express concern: Washington believes that Tehran is bluffing, while the Islamic Republic is very serious.

Information bomb

Iran has not yet set such an ambitious goal as intimidating the States with the threat of war. Tehran is aware that there is not a single base in the Atlantic Ocean ready to serve the Iranian fleet, and in the event of a military collision, the ships together with the crew will be abandoned to the mercy of fate with all the ensuing consequences, including flooding or captivity.

However, it is still unknown whether the ships really are. A statement on sending the fleet to the US sea borders was made by Afshin Rezayi Haddad, commander of the northern fleet of Iran. His words have not yet been confirmed from independent sources, although the route of the convoy passes through brisk waters, where it is impossible not to notice a huge warship.

Sending the fleet to the American coast is not a military maneuver, but a political demarche. It is unlikely that Iran hopes to create a serious threat to the United States, but it wants to demonstrate to its neighbors that its fleet is in good condition and fully operational. First of all, this should be known in Saudi Arabia and Oman, who at any time can enter into a military confrontation with Iran.

Tehran’s allies must also be confident in the strength of the Islamic Republic, otherwise they may turn away from it in search of better partners and patrons. It is necessary to constantly maintain the image of a strong and ready-for-action state.

Ivan Konovalov, director of the Center for Strategic Conjuncture, suggests that by sending a fleet to the US coast, Iran was hoping to raise its stakes in a big game in the Middle East, and he managed to achieve its goal. Although the words of Afshin Rezayi Khaddad are not confirmed by anyone, Tehran’s ambitious intentions have become “theme number XXUMX” in the world media, and now Iran is spoken of as a country with developed naval forces capable of competing on equal terms with other Gulf States.

It is significant that Iran announced its intention to send the fleet to the maritime borders of the United States back in September 2012. Then Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayari spoke on behalf of Tehran: According to him, the Iranian ships near the territorial waters of the United States would be an excellent counterbalance to the American fleet that entered the Persian Gulf. However, following these loud statements, no concrete actions followed.

The year before, in February 2011, two Iranian warships entered the Mediterranean through the Suez Canal and made a friendly visit to Syria. This event for several weeks became the key topic discussed in the media. Then Iran has achieved the desired effect, in practice, stating the power of its fleet.

From 1979 to 2011, none of the Iranian warships passed through the Suez Canal. Western and Arab media described the expedition of the Iranian fleet as an attempt by Tehran to establish itself in the Eastern Mediterranean, demonstrating its strength to Israel and Saudi Arabia. However, friendship visits did not become something permanent: after 2011, the Iranian naval forces no longer undertook such expeditions to the borders of NATO.

Prospects for military confrontation

If information on the deployment of Iranian ships to the US coast turns out to be reliable, then it is unlikely that any military clashes could occur between the fleets of Iran and the United States. As stated above, Iran does not have the ability to maintain its fleet located in the Atlantic Ocean, and Tehran understands this. The suicide battle of the Iranian ships with the American Islamic Republic is not beneficial, since the country desperately needs a fleet to protect its territorial waters. On the account - every ship, because next - aggressive neighbors.

A sharp aggravation of the situation and the death of Iranian ships far from the Persian Gulf will inevitably lead to a complication of relations between Iran and the Arab monarchies. Sensing the slack, Saudi Arabia and its satellites may well unleash aggression against Iran, while the American fleet moves to the shores of the Islamic Republic. The destruction of part of the Iranian fleet will allow to transfer military operations to the Iranian coast: a landing is possible with the aim of destroying the infrastructure necessary for the extraction and transportation of oil.

We should not forget that Iran and the Arab monarchies are irreconcilable competitors-producers of hydrocarbons. If we discard the geopolitical games and interfaith confrontation, the conflict between the Islamic Republic and Saudi Arabia will be similar to the struggle between two corporations, which both sell the same product and fight for a place under the sun. That is why the enemy’s energy infrastructure, especially the coastal infrastructure, will become the main target for the armed forces of Iran and Saudi Arabia.

The loss of large warships will result in great trouble for Iran. The fact is that the Iranian Navy has a small number of ships with a large displacement. The basis of the fleet - numerous small ships that can quickly strike and retire. Iranian missile boats can destroy part of the coastal infrastructure in the Arabian Peninsula, but are unlikely to stand in battle against the more powerful ships of the United States, Saudi Arabia, Oman and other states.

Tehran does not need such a scenario.

Therefore, one should not expect the beginning of a serious military confrontation, unless, of course, the States provoke Iranian ships to open fire. The current campaign of the Iranian fleet is symbolic in nature and will help solve problems of a political nature, but not a military one.

The United States, in turn, is also not preparing for a march in the Middle East. Syria, Ukraine, China are on the agenda, and against them the Iranian nuclear program fades into the background. Washington’s refusal of its intentions towards Tehran became apparent after the sides reached some compromises in Geneva, and the sanctions against Iran were partially lifted.

The first step to relieve tensions was the call of Barack Obama to the President of the Islamic Republic, Hassan Rouhani, last September. Interestingly, this telephone conversation was not planned, and took place at such a high level for the first time since 1979.

After this incident, tensions between Iran and the West began to decline. Perhaps this is what the States need in order to free up resources to fight on the rest of the world fronts, especially in Far Asia, where China is gradually building up its military power in the hope of becoming one of the strongest countries in the world. Washington, playing in the Middle East, completely forgot about China, and now urgently forced to make every effort to patch the gap formed.

In such circumstances, Iran is able to afford a lot. Now the fleet does not need to keep all the time near its coast in anticipation of an attack from the sea, and several warships can be safely sent on a long voyage somewhere to the shores of North America. The remaining boats fully cope with the tasks of protecting the sea border.

Thus, the Islamic Republic skillfully uses the problems of the United States in Far Asia. Strengthening China is beneficial to Tehran: few people will pay attention to the Iranian nuclear program when China is rearming, and besides, the West is experiencing difficulties in Syria and Ukraine. These are the states in the next six months that will become priorities for Brussels and Washington. In such conditions, the Iranian naval campaign in the Atlantic Ocean will get away with Tehran: the West simply has no time to deal with Iran, it has problems and is more relevant.

        This is not their ship, not their smoke, not their boiler --- and in general, no one knows where these ships are and if they really are. If you follow all the Iranian publications, then they should have tomatoes on the moon for a long time 5- of the first generation to launch, drones, submarines and generally tear all surrounding countries and the States - like a tusik heating pad.
        The article, like the aftore, is a minus. It would be elementary to filter the chatter.

That is, Iran REALLY sent ... it is clear who and where - after all, the Yusovites and the EU-Ssovites are now all running around and discussing "Here, Iran sent ...". It is clear that in Tehran they are now sitting and just laughing in their hands, which is what I wish for us.

    What is this April Fools' issue? The author decided to make the readers laugh? Since when did the VPK "Vice-Admiral Kulakov" become the flagship of the Navy of the Islamic Republic of Iran? The author, how is that? By posting an article about the Iranian Navy on a military website, you probably first need to familiarize yourself with their composition? How can you confuse frigates with a displacement of 1500t. with OUR BOD "Vice-Admiral Kulakov" which in terms of dimensions exceeds them by a head? How could you possibly take Admiral Haddad's jabbering seriously?

Vessels move along the eastern part of the African coast, and should go to the Atlantic Ocean in the region of South Africa. But the Pentagon is skeptical of Iran, and does not express concern: Washington believes that Tehran is bluffing, while the Islamic Republic is very serious.

      Also noticed these mistakes:

      The fact is that the Iranian Navy has a small number ship with a large displacement.
      Iran’s missile boats could destroy part of the coastal infrastructure on the Arabian Peninsula, but are unlikely to stand in battle against more powerful US ships, Saudi Arabia, Oman and other states.

      A ship is what they put in a hospital for non-dormant patients so that the bed is not dirty. The author is illiterate. Once is a typo. Several times in a row - already the level of the author.

      And here's another cool one:

      A statement on sending the fleet to the US maritime borders was made by Afshin Rezai Haddad, commander of the northern fleet of Iran. His words have not yet been confirmed from independent sources, although the convoy’s route passes through busy waters, where it’s impossible to notice huge warship.

      Iran’s Northern Fleet is the Iranian Caspian Flotilla. But how does it sound !!!
      Has anyone ever seen huge warships among Iranians ?! Huge - this is TARK Kuznetsov, or there is an American aircraft carrier. But Iranian ships for coasting and the near sea zone are by no means pulled by huge ones. Even medium in size with a stretch.

About the fact that no one mentions the tanker as part of the squadron, that means they will have to go into at least some port. But if no one even knows the composition of the squadron, not that the transition route — is there anyway?

      Mach, I beg you to stop raving. Do you even understand what the DPRK fleet is all about ...
      The flagship of the North Korean fleet, the patrol ship Najin, two were built in total: in 1973 and 1975, based on the Soviet TFR project 50 of the late 40s, one was supposedly already scrapped. Full displacement-1500 tons, armed with 2 anti-ship missiles P-15 of the 60s, 2x1 100-mm AU B-34, 2x2 57-mm AU, 2x2 30-mm AU AK-230, 6x2 25-mm AU 2M-3M , 2 bombs, 30 min. That is, there is practically no air defense except for universal guns with manual guidance and two ancient anti-ship missiles from the 60s.

      For comparison: the South Korean destroyer "King Sogeon the Great", built 2008-2012, all built 3. Destroyers like “King Sejon” are the analogs of American destroyers URO type “Arly Burke” with a large displacement. Total displacement 10 290 tons. Armament: 2 UVP Mk-41 VLS on 48 and 32 cells, respectively (up to 32 KR Hyunmoo III).

          And, if you put on it another "Club", UVP with "Calm" and paint it with a special paint, then there will be no price at all. Mach, the DPRK fleet is a coastal fleet, its main task is to combat the alleged amphibious assault forces of the enemy, for in North Korea, they perfectly remember the landing in Incheon in 1950, after which the Americans snatched victory in the Korean War from them and only timely help from China and the USSR saved DPRK from defeat. And for long sea voyages, for example, to the east coast of the United States, the DPRK has neither ships nor sailors. The most that North Korean sailors are capable of now is a surprise attack by an enemy ship, as in the case of the South Korean corvette "Cheonan" (of the "Pho Han" type) in 2010 in the coastal waters of Pennyondo Island, a disputed territory between the two Koreas.
          Presumably it was attacked and sunk by a North Korean mini-submarine "Yugo", an acoustic torpedo of North Korean production SNT-02D? which was covered by another North Korean small submarine of the "San-O" type (according to the western classification "Akula")

              Kim Jong-un's strength lies in the fact that he is like a cowboy "elusive Joe" from the well-known joke: "Elusive because nobody needs it." Americans are not interested in it, since North Korea is a country without hydrocarbons. And the southerners are well aware that, having reunited with the DPRK, they receive 28 million mouths and a poor country in which a lot of money must be invested, much more than the FRG in the GDR in order to at least equalize the living standards, and besides, the average South Korean does not wants to postpone his AIPAD, from which Mister PSI sounds, take an automatic rifle and go north to unite with incomprehensible "brothers" who can kill him (and many will do it with pleasure), and then pay money for their maintenance .. ...
              Now further:
              1. Yes, the DPRK has nuclear weapons, but it has an extremely limited arsenal of means of delivery. Of course, the main ones are the famous North Korean missiles, however, they either fly through once or have an insufficient flight range and are unable to reach the United States. As for the Air Force, the only carrier aircraft is IL-28, more precisely, its Chinese clone H-5, of which there are about 80 in the DPRK Air Force and which made its first flight in 1948. How long a similar aircraft with a cruising speed of 700 km / h will live in the air is up to you.

    All arctic fox America !!! A terrible Iranian squadron as part of a bundle of a light frigate and a supply ship, which is standard for long-range cruises of the Iranian fleet, in this case - a light frigate of the Vosper Mk.5 (Alvand) type "Sabalan" and a supply ship "Kharg", for other Iranian ships simply cannot reach the United States will reach.


    True, the frigate, already built in 1972, with a total displacement of as much as 1350 tons, is armed with as many as 4 YJ-82 launchers of Iranian clones of Chinese C-802 anti-ship missiles with a firing range of 80-120 km and an outdated English shipboard of the early 70s "Sea Cat" air defense system ( 10 missiles), according to some reports, was dismantled by the Iranians because of its uselessness. That is, the ship has no air defense at all, unless of course you count the air defense of this: the 20-mm Oerlikon with manual guidance.

    Let me remind you for the sinking of a similar ship "Sahand" in 1988, the Americans needed a link of carrier-based attack aircraft A-6 "Intruder" and the destroyer "Joseph Strauss", which fired four anti-ship missiles "Harpoon" (destroyer-one) - three hit the target, two guided Skipper bombs and three 454-kg unguided bombs. At the same time, a similar frigate Sabalan, which is just going to the shores of the United States, was severely damaged.

    Even if the Iranians had released their "destroyer" "Jamaran" into the sea, it had even more impressive air defense: 2 "Merhab" air defense systems (a copy of the American RIM-66 "Standard". In short: "Tremble America, Iran is coming! fellow wassat laughing

    Here they are about to build there all over Europe from the bloodthirsty Iran. And what is stopping Iran from pushing missiles onto a cargo ship and shooting it straight from 300 km? Well, of course after they sink the empty ship, but the sediment over the United States will remain. This is the question of the fact that Iran suddenly, suddenly, vilely decides the freedom to cast uranium and curses.

    PS In general, there is such a "flotilla" floating (and whether it swam), which is even funny.

    Why didn’t the Iranians install the newest Russian capsocidone-1000 complex?

    The complex simultaneously scatters 20, no, 30 goals and throws the remaining 1000 with caps.

    Does Iran have ocean-going ships? A couple of their "destroyers" (patrol corvettes with a displacement of 1500 tons and OTO-Melara "pukalki") - that's all. "First we will send one" ship. "Then the second. - So, the whole fleet!"

    Nice news, of course, when at least Burundi's fleet will sail to the shores of the United States, but I never understood and do not understand such statements of Iran) For the media and grandmothers watching them, it is probably suitable. But the Pentagon probably laughs at such "Iranian threats" lol In my opinion, the Iranians only expose themselves to ridicule - they will show a "super fighter" a la wheelchair, then they threaten to "incinerate" everyone with a missile strike, "the most modern fighter of the next generation" - a modification of the old F-5 in the amount of 12 pieces, then some some pearl ... angry They would actually know how to fight since pi ...

      Listen Jack the Ripper, you at least imagine the naval composition of the Iranian fleet, making such statements. If not, then see:
      3 DEPL project 877, delivered from Russia to 1992, 1993, 1997 gg accordingly, the first Tareq-boat was repaired in 2012 by Iranian forces.
      Diesel-electric submarines of the "Fateh" type, one in service, the second is being built for the Caspian Sea - most likely similar to the German project 206
      20 mini submarine project Al-Ghadir- Iranian production, construction continues
      1 mini submarine project Al-Sabehat
      2 mini submarine project Nahang- North Korean project, built using the DPRK
      4 mini submarines of the Yugo project - delivered from the DPRK in the 90's
      Another Qaaem submarine is under construction, with a displacement of 1000 tons.
      Surface ships:
      3 light frigates of the British project "Vosper Mk.5" - "Alvand" - delivered under the Shah (4 were delivered in total, but one was sunk in 1988 by the Americans), modernized by the Iranians, they were equipped with Chinese anti-ship missiles YJ-82 (C-802) -4 PU. The weaknesses of the ship include weak air defense - outdated shipborne air defense system "Sea Cat" (10 missiles);
      2 "destroyers", in Iranian terminology, but rather light frigates of the Moudge type: 1-Jamaran, entered the fleet in 2010, 2- Velayat for the Caspian Sea was launched on March 17 last year. They are a further development of the Alvand project. Armament: 2 air defense systems "Merhab" (a copy of the American RIM-66 "Standard", 4 Iranian clones of the Chinese anti-ship missiles C-802 with a firing range of 80-120 km, 76-mm AU Fajr 27 (copy of Oto-Melar), 2 20-mm "Erlikon" with manual guidance. In total, it is planned to build 4-6 ships. Our project 11661 TFR "Tatarstan" and "Dagestan" can easily kill this ship in the Caspian, and "Dagestan" can be right in the port.
      Another frigate "Moudge 5" is under construction, laid down in 2012. Estimated displacement of 2,000-2,500 tons, armament similar to Moudge-class frigates, however, a helicopter hangar is planned, which will house either one Sikorsky CH-53 Sea Stallion helicopter, or two Bell-Augusta 212
      3 Corvette:
      2 type Bayandor, American-built 60-ies (all built 4, but 2 were sunk during the Iran-Iraq war), modernized by the Iranians, rearmament 4 anti-ship missile C-802
      1 type Hamzeh, the former Shah yacht of the 1936 year of construction, on the Caspian Sea. Also armed with 4 RCC C-802.
      Missile boats are the most numerous class of ships of the Iranian Navy:
      10 type Houdong Chinese-built, delivered in 1994-1996. armed with 4 Chinese anti-ship missiles YJ-82 (C-802). Are part of the Navy "Guards of the Islamic Revolution"
      10 Kaman type German-built, according to the French Combattante II project, transferred in 1977-1981, originally armed with 2-4 launchers of the American Harpoon anti-ship missiles, now rearmed with 4 Chinese YJ-82 (C-802) anti-ship missiles
      4 type Sina-Iranian built, the further development of Kaman type RCA: 2 (Paykan, Joshan) in the Caspian Sea, armed with 4 Chinese anti-ship missiles YJ-82 (C-802)
      8 Kalat, semi-submersible boats built in North Korea, armed with 4 Chinese anti-ship missiles YJ-82 (C-802)
      97 patrol boats:
      3 type American-built Parvin, re-equipped with 2 Iranian anti-ship missiles Nasr
      2 type Kaivan Iranian-built, armed with 1 40-mm AU, 2 ZU-23, 2 DShK
      92 Iranian Bavar Type
      1 minesweeper type Riazi
      Amphibious forces:
      4 TDC type Hengam
      2 landing ship type Iran Ajr
      landing ships of the type Iran Hormuz-24
      MDK type Iran Hormuz-21
      2 MDK type Chavoush
      Fouque type MDK (MIG-S-3700)
      Wellington hovercraft (BH-7)
      Eunice-6 hovercraft.
      Fleet Air Force:
      3 minesweeper RH-53D
      10 anti-submarine helicopters SH-3 Sea King
      14 anti-submarine helicopters AB 212ASW
      1 Mi-17,

      And we are not worried. Everything is so bad that Russia has no ships, except for "Peter the Great" and the aircraft carrier "Admiral Kuznetsov", well, of course, not counting the RCR "Moscow" (Black Sea Fleet, covers the Olympics in Sochi), BPK "Admiral Levchenko" (SF-Middle ), BPK "Admiral Vinogradov" (Pacific Fleet-region of the southern Kuril Islands), TFR "Pytlivy" (Black Sea Fleet together with "Moscow" covers the Olympics in Sochi), and then on the list ... Moreover, I name only ships of 1 and 2 ranks which Iran does not have by definition.

    I imagine a picture: an Iranian junction of ships is floating, floating and sailing across the endless seas, everyone trolls it, jokes like where they are, no one can find them. then they’ll spot and for another three months they will vomit as Iranian ships go out of order, switching to manual rowing. and so gradually, meter by meter they’ll swim to the amers for 500 km ... then a pair of rockets with a nuclear warhead will come out with a creak of metal and so slowly Georgia will be equated with a shithead. it would just be a full house. Americans would probably die at first from laughter, and then, I realize what happened, from hysteria !!!
