During the parades at the mausoleum of the Founder of the Islamic Republic, the late Imam Khomeini, South of the capital, the Iranian Navy displayed a wide variety of vessels and weapons.
The Navy also displayed a wide range of its latest weaponry, including Vellyat II and Vellayat III coast-to-sea missile systems, a mobile missile launching site, and Valfajr torpedoes during the parades.
The strategic sea-to-sea Nour missiles, models of Shahab and Ra’ad assault vessels, the sea-to-sea Nasr missiles and models of Iran’s submarines were also displayed.
Iran commemorated the national Army Day on Saturday in special parades held at Imam Khomeini’s mausoleum.
Iran’s new military equipment and achievements went on display in the parades.
The Iranian Army has recently test-fired different types of newly-developed missiles and torpedoes and tested a large number of its home-made weapons, tools and equipments, including submarines, military ships, artillery, choppers, aircraft, UAVs and air defense and electronic systems, during massive military drills.
Defense analysts and military observers say that Iran’s wargames and its advancements in weapons production have proved a deterrent factor, specially at a time of heightened threats by the US.
