Whoa! The Gay Free Republic of Preacher's Paradise has unveiled her very first home grown navy ship - the first missile destroyer of the Mowdge Class displacing 1400 tons (despite math challenged al Jazeera's "14,000 tonnes").
"Jamaran'' - is the name of the magical well where famous mythical mohammedist, the 12th Imam, Mahdi, is hiding away in occultation near Preacher Boot Camp in Qom.
By happy chance, "Jamaran" is also the nom d'guerre of "...an area in northern Tehran where the late founder of the Islamic republic, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, resided."
Jamaran is actually quite tiny compared to any destroyers built in the last 100 years:
In 1915 Imperial Deutschland sortee'd the G101 class displacing 1,843 tons, 98m (321 feet for the metrically challanged) long and toted 4 85mm guns and six 508mm / 20in torpedo tubes.
Great Satan's WWII DE type from World War II debut'd at 1720 tons, 93 meters long and lovingly killed or maimed any enemies in weapons range with 3 76mm guns, 6 40mm guns, 4 20mm guns, 3 21in torpedo tubes and carried depth charges for the naughty U Boats or Nipponese subs.
In the new millennium, destroyers usually do a displacement of like 3,500 to 9,000 tons.
Great Britain's Daring Class (type 45) does 8,092 tons full load and in the best tradition of Drake and Fisher, rules the waves with Stingray Torpedoes - 4.5" Mk 8 Medium Calibre Gun system; Surface Ship Torpedo Defence system, a fully crunk air defense system along with 60 Royal Marines for fun and games.
Great Satan's Arleigh Burke class tips in at 9,200 tons full load, with a full range of goodies including the Aegeis system along with 32 officers and 348 enlisted sailors.
Since "Jamaran" is significantly tinier than what the wicked woman worshipping West (or China, India, Japan or Pakistan) refer to as 'destroyers' - Jamaran is actually maybe more like a frigate thingy or a guided missile frigate.
1 Fajr-27 76 mm / 3 inch dual purpose naval gun (most likely the Persian version of Italy's 76mm OTO Melara), a Fath 40mm copy of the awesome 40mm Bofors anti aircraft gun, 2 different batteries - 20mm (maybe 25mm?) guns, one each starboard and port.
Missile wise, Jamaran blings 4 of the old reliable China made C-802 (or maybe even the new improved C-803) anti ship missiles stashed in front and back of her funnel.
Jamaran is also tricked out with modern radars and electronic warfare capabilities along with a crew of 120 and plans are laid out to build an entire posse of these critters.
