    Apparently the ship is intended to have Big Foot as its Captain, and got ahold of the phones I threw away 30 years ago.

    If it's used in "defense systems as well as civilian projects" why would there be sanctions?

    The thread is a proof that you can not contain a country like Iran with sanctions.
    They've a sufficient population base (young) and secured income. With the right political decisions they can produce almost anything within a time-frame.

    Maybe they decided in year 2000 to gain local carbon-fibre production capabilities, and maybe the plant was intended to come online already in 2005? Who knows.
    With right political decisions anything's possible - even with some years of delay.
