The sheer courage and audacity of the small and weakened Iranian Navy during the Jange Tahmili is an epic in human bravery that is taught even in western naval academies. Two Iranian frigates challenged the might of the US cowards who were attacking unarmed civilians oil platforms in the North Persian Gulf to strangle Iranian economy, the Sahand and Sabalan departed Bandar Abbas and challenged elements of an American surface group. Despite overwhelming odds stacked against them they kept on attacking the US aggressors and even downed a helicopter. The Sahand went down fighting till the last minute before being hit by missiles and air attack. Fires blazing on Sahand's decks eventually reached her munitions magazines, causing an explosion that sank her. This should be remembered as a true epic of Persian courage depicted in the Shahnameh. God bless the marytrs of Iran.
