The Iranian Navy’s domestically built Mowj-class guided-missile destroyer Jamaran has been equipped with chaff and flare-dispensing systems.

Integrated behind the 76mm artillery, called Fajr 27, on the destroyer’s deck, the chaff and flares are passive and defensive countermeasures, aimed at confusing and diverting enemy radar-guided or infrared-guided missiles.

"The chaff and flares are passive and defensive countermeasures."

The Asr phased-array radar, which has also been integrated on the Iranian Navy’s Damavand and Sahand destroyers, has the potential to detect and identify targets with a radar cross section of 4m over a 200km distance.

It can be deployed on a range of naval missions and to detect aerial targets such as cruise missiles, the Fars News Agency reported.
