FTB3-HPLVEAAUGV.jpg

I did a search to figure out which commercial ship they used, I searched the Iranian flag ship register and I think I found which ship could be used.
I think it is the Sarvin imo IMO 9209348 (or a naval unit of the same model), here I am attaching the photo when the name was Dandle (2012) as it is photographed +/- from the same side.
pay attention to the stern of the ship, to the command superstructure, to the two cranes next to the chimney (chimney and crane are identical it seems to the ship being modified).

What do you think this will be used for?

Adding more forward bases?

I wonder cause this is supposed to be an IRGC ship, if it will be used in conjunction with the Soleimani-class Catamarans. IRGC doesn't really build larger ships so all of these are new, and indicates a shift of operation and thought-process.

My guess, this can be used as a Heli, and UAV carrier, along with the typical configuration of a forward base. The Catamarans would be supported by this ship and will protect it and themselves in waters far away from Iran.

Actually the opposite. With a acre of deck space it can house 4 CWIS with 180 coverage on each side plus up to 2–3rd Khordad systems for long range targeting.

The catamarans look to have very limited defense capability.

What do you think this will be used for?

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 military flag and with self-protecting weapons the international status change and any attack or attemp to stop them can be considered an act of war.

It is interesting that in the case of Makran and Shahid Mahdavi both of them retain equipment to supply oil and cargo respectively. They haven´t been converted to a improvised warships like the heavy weaponized german raiders in WWII. They can trade oil and weaponry to elsewhere. And they have or self protected or even with limited capacity of attacking another ships and probably land objectives. But both of them retain their hold and pipes.

Shahid Roudaky seems more raider profile of mission, with long range anti ship missiles and MRAD missiles.

Anyway, the Us Navy and Royal Navy now must think twice if they want to stop a oiler to Syria or Venezuela. And now the same with cargo and delivering sensitive system to allies around the world.
