From the first photos published to the images in the video, you can see that on the helicopter deck they have placed an "accessory" covered by a tarp, some elements of the photo seem to identify the cabin and a large vehicle, a box truck! maybe specialized container?
maybe with something inside to use during these exercises?
Hope to have new images soon





yes, I had guessed well, 8-) who knows what it carries ?

and a look towards the bow

Today wandering around the web I met this video concerning the "Umkhonto IR" system on board the Meko-200 of the Algerian Navy and it came to my mind that in the recent past it seemed that this system was also of interest to Iran, some of the users of this forum has news if today, with the end of the UN ban on the sale and purchase of weapons, this VLS system "Umkhonto IR" is still on the agenda of a possible agreement with South Africa. It would appear to be a very compact system that could easily adapt to Iran's naval units
Thanks in advance for a possible answer

I vaguely remember a news article here not long after jcpoa regarding that with the main reason being that it could be fitted to a compact naval platform. Since then there has been the new Kamin/Mersad 2 along with 15th Khordad and Bavar. Iran has all the capabilities and pre existing tech in place to make this system today. Navalized Kamin 2 & Sayyad 2 tied to cheshmeh oghab and asr radars for future vessels would be a better investment. They only need to adapt those missiles for vls.

Interview with Khanzadi:

Good points on this video:

- Telemedicine and tele surgery is available on the ship.
- Seven heavy helicopters can be carried.
- Some AD is available but will be completed with more AD and Gatling-type guns.
- 80 by 40 m helo deck
- Helicopter Hangar will be added.
- Command center will be changed to the top of the hangar.
- Drone support is only for jet powered UAVs.

Regarding tele surgery, this option is the only available option AFAIK.



This robot is from a start up called sinamed.ir

Some points from above interview:

1- Makran-2 is already being worked on.
2- Makran-1 has good E-warfare and intelligence gathering/relaying capability.
3- Project Negin will begin its construction in the year 1400, the underlying electric propulsion systems, air defence etc are at a good stage or ready.
4- Two Fateh submarine are in manufacturing stage and the Navy has asked for their production to speed up.

Sadly no question has asked regarding Besat submarine or the navy's supersonic cruise missile projects.

you can be sure these also will be added to Shahid Roudaki. and the deck of that ship don't remain as such mess as the time of its unveiling .

damn that helo hanger , you must install at least 4 kamand and some Airdefense on it as soon as possible . the ship seriously need a cannon and it has space for all those and even more . if Somali pirates want to attack the ship as its now the only defense it have is that the sailors get their hand guns and shoot back at them over the rail.

compare it with 44 year old IRIS Kharg which is smaller and still carry (its at least 1/4th in size)
  • 1 × OTO Melara 76 mm/62 gun
  • 4 × USSR 23 mm/80 guns
  • 2 × 12.7mm machine guns

Admiral Khanzandi did state that corona required that this vessel be available asap as Iran could no longer count on ports outside of Iran and the instability in Yemen and increased attacks against shipping in the Red Sea precipitated the need for this and the other floating bases. Makran 2 is currently being fitted out as well. I don't remember ever hearing of so many ships this size for the IRIN so soon until this past year; I believe corona being the main catalyst for these.
