Iran to unveil new satellite, maritime achievements during Revolution anniv.

TEHRAN, Dec. 01 (MNA) – Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Amir Hatami reported of new military and civil achievements that are going to be unveiled during the anniversary of 1979 Islamic Revolution from 1 to 11 February.

“The Ministry of Defense has made good achievements in land, satellite, maritime and other areas that will be unveiled during the Fajr decade (Islamic Revolution anniversary),” Brigadier General Amir Hatami said Saturday during a conference held by the Ministry of Defense’s Basij members.

Minister of defense’s report of new military and non-military achievements by the Defense Ministry came few hours after the domestically-made Sahand destroyer joined Iran's naval fleet during a ceremony at a base in port city of Bandar Abbas in the Persian Gulf on Saturday. The Sahand destroyer is equipped with radar-evading stealth system and can go on voyages lasting five months without refueling. It is said to be the most advanced of a domestic destroyer in the West Asia region. It also has a flight deck for helicopters and a variety of heavy guns including torpedo launchers, anti-aircraft and anti-ship guns, as well as surface-to-surface and surface-to-air missiles. Moreover, it enjoys electronic warfare capabilities.

On Thursday, two  new domestically manufactured Ghadir-class submarines capable of launching subsurface-to-surface missiles, torpedoes and mines joined Iran's naval fleet.

Elsewhere, the Iranian minister of defense noted the enemies' constant plotting to create insecurity in the region through the presence of terrorists, adding "they committed a variety of crimes and used chemical weapons, but today everyone knows that all these crimes are being carried out with the support of the United States."

"What thwarts these conspiracies is the determination of the people and armed forces of the nations, especially Syrian and Iraqi nations," he added
