Iran launches its 1st domestically-built container ship


www.presstv.ir

Iran comes one step closer to shipbuilding independence with the launch of its first indigenous ocean-going container ship in the Persian Gulf.

Manufactured by the Iran Shipbuilding and Offshore Industries Complex Co. (ISOICO), the 2200 TEU container ship weighs 7500 tons on land, can accelerate to 32 knots (59.3 Km/h) and is able to sail 25 days non-stop.

Iran is definitely no joke. Their ability to advance their technology in short amounts of time even while under sanctions is pretty amazing.

Why anyone would think to attack folks like that is totally beyond me. To attack a country with that kind of self sufficiency would be borderline insanity.

The ship looks pretty sweet, and I'd like to commend Iran on another of their accomplishments.

Well i do agree they have a good ability to advance there technology, the sanctions in place have no effect what so ever, there biggest trading partners don't follow the same protocols as the rest of the world. Lol

The technology to build these ships has been "out there" for decades now!

I'm kinda surprised that Iran, being the 4th top oil exporting country, took this long to start building ships for themselves!

I guess when your in the top 4 oil exporting countries, shipbuilding wasn't at the "Top of their List" of things to do!

And I wouldn't exactly say that they are "advancing their technology" as much as "they are using technology that is already out there".
