Advanced Destroyer Delivered

An advanced domestically manufactured destroyer, which is to be used to train cadets, officially joined the Northern Fleet of the navy on Monday in a ceremony held in the northern port city of Bandar-e Anzali on the coast of the Caspian Sea.
Supreme National Security Council Secretary Ali Shamkhani, Defense Minister Lieutenant General Hossein Dehqan and Navy Commander Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari attended the ceremony to launch the vessel, which has been designed and built by the defense ministry's Shahid Tamjidi Marine Industries in collaboration with over 700 industrial, research and academic centers, ISNA reported.
Iran Electronics Industries, a subsidiary of Iran's Defense Industries Organization, has designed, manufactured and installed the warship's 25 telecommunications and electronic systems, including advanced radars and tracking systems. The defense ministry's Aerospace Industries Organization has made and mounted various types of air defense and missile systems on the destroyer, which is named the Damavand.
In his speech at the ceremony, Shamkhani said, "Militarism has no place in the Caspian Sea," noting that Iran's policy is to display its capabilities to "create deterrence" in the face of common threats facing the region, particularly terrorism.
"Regional countries can achieve economic prosperity exploiting the exceptional potential of this sea through (promoting) collective security," he added.
