In the image with the Corvette and LST the ship in the background appears to be a Dhow and not a military ship.

bilds9, upon magnification, you could be right. (I'll make the change) There's another larger vessel farther off in the distance, as well.

Mark, I have found that Jamejam Farsi site normally has better resolution photos. It is best to always glean through ISNA, Mehr, Fars and Jamejam amongst the Iranian sites. Many others in the western blogging world use their photos too. Cheers.
