I think that Iranian navy force is improving very rapidly aand it is in-front of air-force.
improvement also faster then air-force.

inshallah after 5 to 10 years we will keep controlling of whole Persian Gulf, Oman sea and a part of india sea

Future Iranian navy will be mostely of small crafts in Persian Gulf in addition to emphasis on under water vessels. No very large ships will be deployed until such time Iran has developed a powerful ship based AD systems. We willl see a Mowj class joinging caspian fleed soon along with more Combatant class missile boats. Jamaran should join the southern fleet, when ? I don't know!

I have a few questions regarding the Navy.

Questions about the Mowj Frigate.

Are there any pictures of Mowj 1?
Where is it stationed in the Persian Gulf or in the Caspain sea?
Does it have the HQ-7?
When will the Mowj 2 be completed and where will it be stationed?

General questions.
Does Iran put Misagh Manpads on any of the vessals? Do they put them on the boghammers as well? Are there any pictures of them?

Thanks

Yes and no.
There are no conventional pictures of it, however in google earth you can see a picture of what some people claim is the Mowj-1 under construction in Bandar-e Abbas. These are pictured at the end of the post

If the above claim is true, the PG, if not, i think we can still assume its the PG because the Caspian is of much less importance to Iranian strategic goals, and is overall, simply much smaller.

Quote
Does it have the HQ-7?
Maybe, i cant tell from looking at the google imagery. The model that has been displayed shows a launcher ahead of the Bridge, so, most likely. I can't see any problem with sticking a launcher on the ship

Quote
When will the Mowj 2 be completed and where will it be stationed?
Well assuming production time around the same as Mowj-1, it would be about 4-5 years. And production started in 2007, maybe 2006, so around 2011-2012, maybe less. That being said, i can't find evidence of it on the google earth, granted, i haven't checked the Caspian yet, but i find it unlikely it would be deployed there.

No pictoral evidence of it that i have, but i think its a safe bet they do as it would be the only anti-air capability possible beyond the few mig-s-1800's with zu-23-1's.

And these were the pictures i was talking about of the Mowj-1
The dates of the pictures ar as follows, respectively;

March 2005
February 2008
2003
2003

The Mowj warship is a reference to a class of Iranian warships. The original ship started construction about 1997. I saw the photoes of the hull in dry dock in 2001 frame.

Jamaran is also a Mowj class warship that was supposed to be constructed by a company in Bandar Pahlavi in caspian sea. The shipyard did not manage the project well and then due to some funding shortage it is probably on a slow burner.

The pictures are available, in fact there is a video on Mowj almost 100% completed while at the Duck in Bandat Abbas. Here it is:



Mowj, went through some reworks for its elctronics. In my opinion, the main reasons of delays were the engines, then electronics reworks and now finally the SAM system which I am not so sure if it is procured or not.

Missagh is pretty much standard on light and heavy naval crafts in IRIN and pasdaran Navy.

Also, Ayyash...From the looks of it the first image you have there from 2003 looks more like a Alvand class being overhauled..

Below is a photo showing the progress of MOwj and it was barely a hull as of summer 2002 and it is likely ur mystery ships from 2003

I posted some pictures of of this same vassel in the main "Mowj Corvette" thread, they are screen shots from an IRIB broadcast, but i can't seem to find this video again, do you happen to know if it comes from the same video as the one you posted, despite the obvious lack of the IRIB logo.

Basically, what i'm asking is do you know if there's more then one video with/or about the Mowj/Jamaran.

No, older pictures are allright. Some of these are also old and infact I was using old Shah era pictures for many of these ships (such as for instance the corvettes) until new pictures were released. I was even using satelite images for some of them.

When I started collecting pictures of the Iranian military there were not many released at all, I have many pictures of all these ships and classes (as many as I could get), at one point I had almost everything released of all significant ships, tanks, planes, but ofcourse in the last year a lot of more pictures have been released, so a lot of it I didn't keep up.

But this one I would really like to complete, of all significant ships I try to get a picture and for the smaller vessels such as the FACs, where Iran has lots of and names haven't even been released I just put one picture to show how that class looks. But I'm still missing 4 patrol boats and 11 missile boats, if you've got any of the picutres Ayyas, please post.

Yes, but they are either satelite images or printscreens from videos.

Quote

In Bandar Abbas.

Quote
Does it have the HQ-7?

We don't know. We know it has atleast 1 twin 37mm aa gun but we don't know what for SAMs it uses.

Quote
When will the Mowj 2 be completed and where will it be stationed?

Well Mowj 1's production started in 2003. It entered service in end November 2007. Mowj 2's production started in February 2007, it'll likely take the same amounth of time.

Where it's stationed is unknown, though some claim it is in the Caspian sea but there are no sources to back that up.

We don't know, it seems a good idea but there is no evidence that they are infact doing that.

I found this pic showing the new Research Submarine being designed/built by Iranian university students called the Arsin Sharif...It is very interesting design, though we don't have much of a scale of its dimensions but still very interesting!

What is the difference between the SSI and the SSK and where did we get the SSI from and why are they in reserve?
