Iran on Sunday unveiled its first home-made simulator for speed vessels in a ceremony attended by Lieutenant Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps Navy General Alireza Tangsiri in the Central city of Isfahan.
The speed vessel simulator system has been designed and built by Iranian engineers at Amir al-Mo’menin Students Complex in Isfahan and all its parts have been produced domestically.
Military officials said the machine enjoys the capability to simulate navigation in different weather conditions and sea waves in different heights and with different levels of toughness and severity.
The officials also said that the simulator has been built to enhance the IRGC forces’ preciseness, skills and navigation safety and reduce the costs.
Iranian experts have made huge progress in designing and developing various types of military simulators in recent years. Simulators help cadets receive better training and test their sailing and navigation skills in various weather conditions.
The product helps the country save millions of dollars.
Tehran launched an arms development program during the 1980-88 Iraqi imposed war on Iran to compensate for a US weapons embargo. Since 1992, Iran has produced its own tanks, armored personnel carriers, missiles and fighter planes.
Yet, Iranian officials have always stressed that the country’s military and arms programs serve defensive purposes and should not be perceived as a threat to any other country.
