If your navy is not modern enough, and you are forced to face a stronger foe, CDS could save the day.
After being defeated twice by Israel at the October War (1973) and having a poor budget for a long period, the Syrian Navy consists today mainly of a few old soviet OSA I/II FAC(M) and two Petya II antisubmarine frigates. In addition, it has six Iranian built Tir II FAC(M). That is why Damascus has chosen to improve her Coastal Defence capabilities.
