There were a couple of other interesting aircraft shown along with the helicopters

These are AeroVolga LA-8 amphibious aircraft.Just the ideal sort of machine for patrolling the persian gulf and indian ocean coastline.
These were at least 4 of these 8 seater aircraft acquired back in december 2017.

231 meters, such a large ship is difficult to hide while under construction, I am of the opinion that it could be a project built in Iran initially for the merchant navy then adapted for military missions, or having used a second-hand merchant ship and then overhauled and adapted to military needs.
The Chinese also tested the use of adapted merchant ships this month





Some time ago, I had made, just out of personal curiosity, a photoshop of what a merchant ship of the size that could be available to Iran could look like

but if the dimensions (231 meters ) of the new ship are correct, this new one will be much larger
Nice editing. It seems you enjoy making these.

What would you think of the following suggestion for a "photoshop", should you find the idea interesting and have time some day: an Iranian vessel (existing frigate or anything else) armed with multiple ballistic missile launchers (Persian Gulf anti-ship ballistic missiles, Hormoz-1 / -2 anti-radiation missiles, or Dezful / Zolfaqar / Raad 500 / Haj Qasem land attack ballistic missiles, or a combination of any of these)?

Below a hypothesis elaborated quickly and installed on the Alvand class.
Using 40 "or 45" containers, 2 anti-ship ballistic missiles, with equipment to make it as autonomous as possible.
The door towards the bow of the container must be lowered to 40/45 ° to deflect the flame during the launch of the missile, and internally shaped to deflect the flame also towards the sides of the ship.
Being a container it could be installed on different naval units, as long as they have the space to place it

Being a container, it can be installed on different naval units as long as they have the space to place it, and certainly no problems in embarking commercial ships adapted for multipurpose military uses, also transporting them in a very anonymous form.

Rear Admiral Khanzadi: We’re moving from subsonic to supersonic missiles

TEHRAN - In an exclusive interview with the Tehran Times on Thursday, Navy Commander Rear Admiral Hossein Khanzadi elaborated on the Iranian Navy’s efforts to modernize its military equipment.
Khanzadi said the Iranian Navy has made tremendous efforts over the past years to modernize its arsenal.
Following is the second part of the interview:


Q: You spoke about equipment. Does the Navy plan to unveil new achievements given that the Day of Navy is a few months away?

A: Yes. As the Leader said, this year’s name is “Production Leap”, which has different definitions in national and defense spheres. For us, it means producing more security.

Q: So you don’t increase the number of weapons such as missiles or increase their range?
A: No, because we have so many missiles with various ranges. And we are seeking to make achievements in other sectors. We are moving from subsonic missiles to supersonic missiles, and from traditional decks to modern decks. The traditional deck of a destroyer carries few missiles, but modern ones carry a lot of missiles from surface-to-surface missiles to surface-to-air missiles. We are really turning from a traditional navy to a modern one.

We will have a busy November this year (November 27 is the Navy Day in Iran). First of all, we have boosted the combat readiness of our destroyers over the past year. Now they have a better maneuvering capability with more advanced weaponry. They also have better missile defense systems and new precision-guided defense missiles as well as underwater sonar systems. All of our destroyers have been upgraded and now they have all of these capabilities. In November, God willing, we will hold a naval parade with all of our destroyers for the first time on the occasion of Navy Day, which will demonstrate our full combat readiness. The destroyer Dena will join the Navy in November. We made efforts to make this happen during the Sacred Defense Week. But we have done some improvements to it that took a long time. We added some new features to it. Unlike the past, we are in no rush to join destroyers to the Navy, because we want to carefully upgrade our equipment. We have recently paid a visit to Dena. Improvement in working is going fast. This destroyer is an upgraded version of the Jamaran type. And we also have Saba minesweeper, which is designed to be used in demining operations. If the enemy tries to mine our ports or our territories, Saba will help us in demine these territories.

We have a Zereh missile cruiser which is Peykan-class and very fast, powerful, and equipped with new missile systems. We have manufactured four Zereh cruisers in the Caspian Sea and the fifth Zereh cruiser is being manufactured in southern Iran. We have a number of old-version Zereh missile cruisers. But we are making more advanced versions of this cruiser.

Besides, we have designed new-generation towboats. When we say towboat, some may say it’s a simple thing that will tow something else. However, towboats are very crucial in accelerating maritime operations. We are manufacturing the strongest of towboats, which is 6,000 horsepower. We didn’t possess such powerful towboats. All of our towboats were imported. But this towboat is being manufactured in Iran.
After November 27, God willing, we will also see the joining of other equipment to the Navy. For example, a new upgraded version of the destroyer Damavand will join the Navy. New capabilities have been added to Damavand which I will declare when it joins the Navy. But it has undergone major and nice changes. It was changed in a way that makes it compatible with the Caspian Sea. We have made a lot of technological works.


Q: Recently, it was announced that Iran is making an unmanned submarine. Can you give us information about this submarine?
A: Submarines are a very broad issue. Today, we have reached the highest level of submarine technology. Unmanned submarines are a little bit complicated. But we are strongly interested in this type of submarines. In past years, the commander-in-chief has reiterated that we should take the control of the region with submarines. He exactly pointed to the enemies’ weak spots. Today, we remain focused on submarines among other things. We are not willing to give more details, but we have a lot of surprises for the enemies and global arrogance.

We need more information on the supersonic anti ship systems, disappointed the interviewer did not ask him. Regarding Loghman training ship, it seems it will be 3000 ton.
