    United States President Barack Obama ready to strike Iran to stop Iranian nuclear weapon program.
    No one should doubt that President Barack Obama is prepared to use military force to prevent Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon if sanctions and diplomacy fail, the president’s former special assistant on Iran said.

    “There are consequences if you act militarily, and there’s big consequences if you don’t act,” said Ross, who in a two- hour interview at the Bloomberg Washington office laid out a detailed argument against those who say Obama would sooner “contain” a nuclear-armed Iran than strike militarily.

    Iran to Unveil Home-Made Maritime Patrol Aircraft (MPA) Next Month
    Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Ahmad Vahidi announced that the country plans to unveil a home-made sea patrol aircraft within the next few weeks.

    Vahidi said that the aircraft is being manufactured, and expressed the hope that the project could be unveiled during the Ten-Day Dawn ceremonies from February 1 to 11, celebrating the victory of the Islamic Revolution back in 1979.

    As regards the features of the aircraft, Vahidi said that it is equipped with optical and radar subsystems and is capable of operating for long distances and can be used in maritime reconnaissance patrolling.

    Iran closer to bomb than world realizes?
    Warning: 1-year prediction may be too optimistic

    A report that Iran is about a year away from having the capability to build a nuclear bomb may be too optimistic, contended John Bolton, former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations.

    “I worry the publicly available information is giving only a very small picture and that Iran is actually even much further along,” Bolton said today in a radio interview.

    Bolton was on “Aaron Klein Investigative Radio” on New York’s WABC Radio. The former ambassador was asked about a statement from a former head of U.N. nuclear inspections claiming Iran is now just a year or so away from having enough enriched uranium to assemble a nuclear bomb.

    i think they are talking about a Navy-variant of Iran-140, as seen on this model from last year Iran-140 navy variant armed with c-802 anti ship missiles.

    Iran reportedly designed an Unmanned underwater vehicle (UUV)
    Iranian researchers have built a "smart remote-control submarine" (or UUV unmanned underwater vehicle) with the subsurface speed of 10 meters per second, according to the semi-official Iranian news agency ISNA.

    According to ISNA, the submarine, dubbed the ‘Phoenix’, ”also possesses beautiful appearance and capable of carrying out different maneuvers.”

    Weighing 3 kilograms, the Phoenix has a single screw propulsion system and a fin maneuverability system.
    It “can carry out surveillance up to one meter,” according to ISNA, adding that a camera can be installed on the submarine and the system can be employed in maritime and military roles.

    10 m/seconds sounds too good to be true while "surveillance up to 1 meter" sounds too crap to be true. But hey, it is beautiful!

    maybe they mixed up the numbers.

    1m/s speed and 10m "viewrange" sounds more plausible

    People should use this thread more often (instead of creating a billion new Iran threads a day)

    Iran starts manufacturing Jamaran 2 "destroyer"
    Iran has started manufacturing Jamaran 2 "destroyer", Iran's Navy Commander Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari said at a press conference, IRINN reported.

    Sayyari added that the Jamaran 2 destroyer is being manufactured domestically under supervision of Iranian specialists.

    He also said the new destroyer model will be more advanced than the first "Jamaran" destroyer launched in the Persian Gulf waters in February 2010.

    First Jamaran "destroyer" (actually a light frigate considerng its roughly 1,500 tons displacement) was also domestically-manufactured, and it completed its first international mission on December 18, after conducting counter-piracy operations in the Gulf of Aden.

    I'm surprised they didn't call this one a cruiser or battleship
