    But in vain ... what then really talk
    I carried out such large sea exercises in my childhood in my bathroom at home ...
    drowned the ships of the enemy immeasurably.

        The United States will probably not like this news. Washington wants to see the Middle East only as an oil rig, and its own. And then it starts ... Let's wait for the reaction from the "world gendarme".

          As always, the State Department will express deep concern, and will consider the possibility of imposing sanctions.

    They would have a more modern fleet. First of all, underwater (Iran has 2nd submarine Halibut and that's all, this is naturally not enough to restrain potential US aggression).

      So it is probably not in vain that the number "94" is present in the name of the exercises. Their fleet corresponds to the level of 1994, obviously. And there is a "gap" in aviation in general. Well, this is fixable. The unique location of Iran on the world map makes it necessary to have a strong fleet. for the planned volumes of oil and gas sales --- there will be money for new ships.

    I don’t know how, but I would welcome the joint exercises of the Russian Navy and Iran around the sea perimeter of the Arabian Peninsula.

        + I’m reading the news as the head of Iran for the last week, I entered into a $ 600 billion trade agreement with China, I am planning to buy 500 new passenger planes. Iran could perfectly support our manufacturers, in particular, to buy Tu-204SM, MC21 aircraft, etc.

          I, too, with two hands. Only in fact we can not offer aircraft to Iran, except for a dry superjet, and then in limited quantities.

        Not all at once. The main thing is that Iran spreads its wings at sea. The CSTO countries are far away, perhaps there will be another military alliance.

    Knowing the composition of the Iranian Navy, the word "large-scale" sounds rather funny ...

    Not bad. Iran, like other large countries, really needs to demonstrate their military capabilities. And given the fact that the sworn "friend" of the United States is constantly trying to do dirty tricks and harbored a grudge for the detention of his special forces, it is necessary to demonstrate systematically.

    That sanctions lifted - and that’s it! Iran soared, our six-winged phoenix. In the photo some trawlers are armed. The fleet is expensive. So now they have already thawed 50 lard greens. Here they will buy everything! Ships, of course, wanted the T 90 tanks, modern air defense, well, planes, although they boasted that they were releasing their own, but I could not believe that. And we are all sanctions, oil is getting cheaper ... Yes, Iran is arming - it's the whole of the military-industrial complex for years plowing in the soap ... And do not care how much this oil is there.

    The normal step, the situation is becoming more and more aggravated, and it wouldn’t be bad with the interaction with our group of ships off the coast of Syria, just before the start of negotiations

    This parade is not only for Americans, but also for Saudis with their sticks like Qatar.

    Only one conclusion can be drawn from this news - Iran is well aware that the day of the NATO attack on it is just a bit moved, and that the Iranians will not doubt it.
