Islamic Republic of Iran Navy

From Canadian Power Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

The Islamic Republic of Iran Navy is a naval branch of the Iranian Armed Forces. After the Iranian Revolution in 1979, the Imperial Iranian Navy was named Islamic Republic of Iran Navy (IRIN). As the naval warfare service branch of the Islamic Republic of Iran's armed forces, it has traditionally been the smallest branch of the Iranian military and is tasked mainly with securing Iran's ports and coastline. Over time, the Iranian Navy has changed its mission to primarily anti-piracy beyond the Persian Gulf and Gulf of Oman. With the normalization of relations with the US and the end of the arms embargo, Iran has begun an extensive modernization program for its armed forces.
