This document profiles the commanders of the Iranian navies as featured in ISW’s Middle East Security Report 1, Iran’s Two Navies: A Maturing Maritime Strategy by Commander Joshua Himes, U.S. Navy.

Prior to the fall of the Shah, the Islamic Republic of Iran Navy (IRIN) was Iran’s preeminent naval force and served to secure the country’s maritime borders. Following the Iranian Revolution, Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini built an armed force to protect the gains from the revolution as he distrusted the conventional armed forces and doubted their loyalty. In so doing, he created the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps Navy (IRGCN) to guard the regime’s maritime interests. The IRIN was forced to share the waters of the Gulf with the newly-created naval arm of the Revolutionary Guard.
