Imperial Iranian Navy

Maritime Special Warfare Commandos (Takavaran Daryaie)

Commemorative Military Challenge Coin

Minted post-revolution and the Iran-Iraq War, in solemn memory of the fallen heroes of the Imperial Iranian Naval Special Forces Commandos known as "Takavaran Nirooye Daryaie Shahanshahi" or simply Takavaran Daryaie. These formidable warriors were domestically and Western trained special operations commandos who trained and worked closely with United States Navy Seals, in particular Seal Team 2 in the late 1960's to the time of the Mullah's Revolution in 1979 during the reign of His Imperial Majesty the Shah when Iran was considered an ally of the United States and a vital stabilizing force in the region as well as a power to prevent Soviet expansionism in the Persian Gulf area. They also trained with the British SAS and other Western Special Operations Groups such as the US Green Berets and Army Rangers as well as the British Royal Marines. They, like their Western counterparts specialized in variety of small unit tactical operations by sea, air and land and were very well acclimated to mountain, desert, jungle and marine warfare.

Prior to the 1979 Mullah revolution, they saw extensive action in counter-insurgency operations in Dhoffar Yemen in the Arabian peninsula against Marxist terrorists trained by the Soviet block to destabilize the countries friendly to the West and create an inroad to the warm waters of the Persian Gulf and the oil resources vital to the West's economy. Their other operation of note was in 1971 when they conducted hydrographic and sabotage operations in the three disputed islands of Greater and Lesser Tumb and Abu Musa before an invasion by Iranian forces. These islands were occupied by the British for the last 150+ years and were about to be turned to the Arab States in the southern Persian Gulf prior to the reduction of British presence in the region. They also saw limited operations in Africa and as observers in Viet Nam as part of the "Central Treaty Organization" CENTO forces along with Imperial Iranian Army Green Berets.

Post revolution following the Iraqi invasion of western Iran by Iraq, after having their ranks reduced much like the rest of their brothers and sisters from the Imperial Armed Forces at the hands of the revolutionary butchers of the Mullahs, they volunteered from inside the regime's prisons to go to the war front and defend their sacred land by their oath against the Arab invaders. They trained volunteers as well as conducted many successful assaults on the enemy forces and installations especially in the Island of Fao, causing Sadam Hussain to declare his readiness to negotiate.

After the end of the 8 years of War with Iraq, the ungrateful regime rewarded these gallant WARRIORS for their bravery with imprisonment, executions in secret, out of fear of their might and resolve to defend Iran against all enemies foreign and domestic.
