Iran says navy boats are equipped with anti-radar stealth technology

Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) Navy claims that its boats are now equipped with stealth technology capable of evading enemy radar.

Speaking on the sidelines of an IRGC ceremony, Rear Admiral Alireza Tangsiri said the navy remained a “fully strategic force” with possession of crucial assets, such as upgraded ships, fixed-wing aircraft and unmanned systems.

He further said that the service has always been in close cooperation with defense organizations for the production and integration of advanced military systems and equipment.

Tangsiri explained that the hull material and shape of the service’s speedboats use stealth technology construction techniques to ensure they are not detected by enemies.

He also pointed out that his force uses locally made equipment to make the armed forces self-sufficient.

Iranian military officials have repeatedly said the country will continue to build up its military capabilities to deal with evolving threats.

In May, the country claimed that the production of two indigenous destroyers, the Zagros and the Damavand-2, made significant progress.

All studies related to the manufacture of the ships have reportedly been completed, making them ready for full-scale production on an undisclosed date.

Iran also said it was able to produce and deploy a laser weapon capable of countering sophisticated aerial threats, including enemy drones.

The laser cannon is said to be capable of shooting down air targets using powerful laser beams, primarily to protect “sensitive regions” in Tehran.
