    Dear AmirPatriot; I can guess the mast. If you enter in GoogleMaps you will see a dark part over the funnel and part even the dock, that shadow is consistent with the mast and other parts of others ships docket at Bandar Abbas port. Moreover I can distinguish a round antenna (Tacan?) between...

    What´s about making inflatable concrete shelters?. It is a kind of infatable shelter that can be covered by one or two layers of concrete. IRGC can build dozens of those kinds of shelters in weeks to complement the undeground bases. Those can be even built in series and then deployed in remote...

    After Pelosi´s visit TW, everything is possible. The better armed Iran, the more resources US must employ to deal with. And nowadays J10C is not the top nocht fighter of China fighters, it is not J16 or J20. It is still a bit behind F15QA and F2000 of RSAF, at least cinematically.

    Fully agree. Iran is one of the few cradles of Civilization. Much before europeans.

    Mowj it is not suitable for combat missions. It is still a good ship for patrolling, intelligence (if they add proper COMINT/SIGINT sensors) and escort ships for keeping protected iranian SLOCs. But they lack large quantity of weaponry, they lack endurance and above all, they lack homogeneity...

    Exactly. One system will never win a war. Even if it is "game changer". You need a combination of excellent weapons and a good tactics. Neither the V2 rocket or Me262 weren´t enough for winning IIWW. And as others users have stated, HIMARS is not a game changer. It is a time winner for some...

    Please see Google Maps. Images around Bandar Anzali have been refreshed. It is phisically impossible to fit there an VLS. Funnels are tall and space are so small. No way. Moreover that place is specially high, and gravity center in a strecht hull would be dangerously high. Or bow or new hull...

    I read today this article where US Navy retired officer complaints about iranian resolution to answer any challenge coming or promoted by the US. I think it is more necessary than ever to build a truly blue water frigate for protecting the same freedom that the author of this article are...

    In the case of the Alligators, the reason is clear. Many of them operates DIRCM systems, and moreover, they doesn´t do direct CAS missions. The videos shows how they fly and try to maintain a very high AOA just for trying to grab some hundreds meters more of range to their rockets. So...

    I think attack helicopters are extremely vulnerable to MANPADS. Ukraine conflict has shown that thousands of MANPADs given by western countries can stop or make nearly impossible using attack helicopters in combat. UCAVs like that Mohajer 6 with 6 glide guided bombs are much more safe and less...

    Hi guys; Making a bit of OSINT in Google maps, and watching closely the Isfahan AB I found something interesting; 1.- See at least 4 F14s are out of the armored shelters. May be indicative about a certain (good in my oppinion) level of readiness...

    Dual purpose; as a floating base for IRGC operations near Yemen or other friendly waters or for trading with third countries. The problems generated by evil forces tasked to interrupt commerce in Mediterranean sea (see Adrian Darya I and Grace I), can be solved using this kind of ships. Under...

    As far I remember 9th Dey probably has no seeker and it is RF directed by FCR of the system. Taer has SARH guidance and it has his own seeker. 9th Dey is better for anti-missile tasks, because it is lighter, cheaper and you can launch more to the incoming threat. Taer having is own active radar...

    But for building in... how many time?. That section has been there for months (according do Google Earth images), the pace of construction of Talaiyeh may be indicative about time needed to build so big warship. Two weeks ago Google Earth actualized the map and again no signals of finishing...

    I agree. I like discussing about facts; the first fact it is that in front of the Gripen C/D, J10C won. The second fact it is that Japan ran to build their own Meteor missile (ramjet propulsion with maneovurable nozzle, in fact they signed a contract to buy the engine of european missile, and...

    Are you sure?. It is said that J10C has been superior to some versions of the Gripen (C/D) in maneouvers with Thailand. AESA radar + IRST and PL15 makes it even better that F16 (actually no IRST on them and range of AIM120 shorter than PL15). Even China has been reluctant to sell those to...

    I think it is a problem of funds. Iran has not much funds for embarking in a new IRIAF combat aircraft. If they have funds, they will invest it in the most formidable weapons they are credited, BM. And after it, they invest in robust SAM to make not perfect but much better A2/AD zones in all...
