Manufacturing of the Iranian Navy’s indigenized version of the Phalanx, a close-in weapon system (CIWS) on military vessels used for defense against anti-ship missiles, is in good progress, a top commander said. Speaking to the Tasnim News Agency, Lieutenant Commander of Iran’s Navy Admiral Gholam Reza Biqam said the Iranian version of the CIWS is being produced, describing the progress in the manufacturing process as good. He added that since the homegrown system is being developed by the country’s Defense Ministry, plans to unveil it will be announced by the ministry in due time. Back in May, Admiral Biqam had told Tasnim that the Defense Ministry has gotten good results in upgrading the Phalanx firing system. The Navy will receive the weapon system once the final tests are performed, he said at the time. Last year, Navy Commander Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari had unveiled plans for manufacturing the homegrown version of Phalanx. Consisting of a radar-guided Gatling gun mounted on a swiveling base, the Phalanx has been used by multiple navies around the world, notably by the US Navy on every class of surface combat ship. Iranian experts have already produced a powerful Gatling gun, dubbed “Moharram”. The six-barrel weapon is a 50 caliber firearm with the high rate of fire of 2,000-2,500 rounds per minute. The fast machine gun can also be mounted on a broad range of military vehicles, choppers, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), warships and destroyers.

Commodore Rob Elliott, director general for Surface Combatants and Aviation within the RAN's Strategic Command, told IHS Jane's on 5 July that the number of mounts depended on final design and radar cross-section analysis. Installation, he added, was unlikely to begin before 2018 at the earliest. This is also the anticipated date for the return from the United States of the first of the RAN's current inventory of 12 Phalanx mounts after being upgraded to the Block 1B Baseline 2 configuration.
