Iran’s navy has mounted a locally built advanced defensive weapons system on one of its warships for the first time, the Iranian navy chief was quoted as saying on Saturday, as tensions mount with the U.S. military in the Persian Gulf.

ranian Navy Commander Rear Admiral Hossein Khanzadi “reiterated that coastal and sea testing of the short range defense Kamand system were concluded successfully, and said this system was mounted … on a warship and will be mounted on a second ship soon,” the semi-official Tasnim news agency reported,

The Kamand has been dubbed the “Iranian Phalanx” after an automated machinegun produced by U.S. firm Raytheon whose heavy bullets shred incoming missiles.
