I agree...beside some real economic benefits of this project the political/military motivation for this project was so immense that it was done in ONE year...fast and furious for Iran.. apparently the Oil minister was personally following the progress of the project.This project is a game changer, and shows (once again), the vision that Iranian leaders have.
To all those people on PDF who think Iran would "never close the strait of Hormuz", JUST WAIT. You thought Iran had fake weapons until they started causing real pain, now you will think Iran is bluffing about closing the strait, but now we know its a real possibility, and as always, Iran will close the strait only when certain red lines are crossed, because Iran has little natural motivation to do such an act.
But if you come from afar, and make the mistake of sitting your "advanced aesa radar having frigate blah blah" inside the persian gulf, if Iran locks that strait, the warships are only sitting ducks. Iran can decide at anytime when they will visit the bottom of the gulf, afterall its shallow.
