Iran’s homegrown destroyer Damavand has fully sunk in the Caspian Sea a couple of weeks after it suffered damages during the stormy weather of Anzali Port, Iran, Caspian Sea.
The video footage obtained by Mizan Online shows Iranian Navy frigate reportedly sank on Sunday, January 28, that had crashed with Anzali Port’s jetty on January 10 and suffered minor damages when docking at the port. The crash had killed two crew members.
Increasing wind speed and severe storm in the Caspian Sea was the cause of the crash; however, the Navy had declared it would be repaired in a short time.
The 100-metre-long destroyer weighing more than 1300 tons, officially joined the Navy’s northern fleet in the Caspian Sea in March 2015.
Damavand was installed with 25 homegrown electronics and communication systems, including advanced naval radars and systems for communication, detection and interception.
