Iran has recently been a hot topics for people all around the world. Recently in September last year, Iran revealed its very first squadrons of boat-planes titled BAVAR 2 which had machine guns attached to them.

Bavar 2 is one of its kind boat-type-craft that can not only survey sky high but also provide sea surveillance coverage and on the ammo side, a machine gun along with a few missiles. It is considered as stealth because of its ability to fly low above water, but experts say that its presence can be felt under the radar.
It is fast and United States claims that it could pose a threat to the Persian Gulf in terms of harassing vessels afloat. Although Iranians claim that BAVAR 2 could act as an ideal Defence line for their Navy. Iranian defence Minister Brig. General Ahmad Vahidi gave a press statement saying:
Islamic Republic of Iran is one of the few countries which managed to design, build and use flying boats in a short time.”
This is true no doubt and DARPA has been bested out this time. Here is a video below of BAVAR 2:
