BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:00 A.M.) – The naval commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), ‘Ali Reza Tangsiri, stated on Monday that his high command plans on equipping their forces with the latest stealth technology and weaponry to combat any threats in the Persian Gulf, the Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA) reported.

“The high speed and high movement in operations has always been of great importance to the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) navy”, he was quoted as saying.

The IRGC is also currently working on increasing the maximum speed of such boats to over 80 knots per hour (around 148 kilometres per hour) and equipping them with “agile missiles”.

Speaking about foreign military presence in the region, Tangsiri said that although it is not present in waters, monitored by Iran, Tehran is still keeping a close eye on the situation.

He also expressed concern about potential damage to the environment that could be done to the region if the recently arrived nuclear-powered carrier USS John C. Stennis gets “in trouble”.
