Unidentified images[edit]

Category:Unidentified subjects in Iran and [[:Category:Unidentified locations in Tehran ]] have 600+ images of unidentified subjects in Iran that we need help properly categorizing! If you recognise even just one of these images, please click it and add the appropriate categorization so it can be removed from the list. Sometimes the filename even helps, uploaders just haven't found the right categories.


  • When requesting, please provide the name of the article and reason with your signature to the list of requests.
The two giving me difficulty are File:The 43rd Fleet of Army’s Navy has been navigating international waters in north of Indian Ocean for 28 days, returned Jask on Wednesday.7.jpg (Hull 185) and File:Iranian Alvand class frigat.JPEG...the latter, assuming it is correctly an Alvand should be 71, 72, 73 or 74...yet shows only "7"; if an Iranian government release I would assume it was an intelligence-job to wipe the trailing digit...but by a US photographer?

  • ✓[OK], I created the categories as "Category:IRIS #### NAME", so you can use hotcat or similar to simply type "IRIS" followed by the hull number you see in the image, and it should automatically suggest to you the name of the ship :) FaNoFtHeAiRiCeLaNd (talk)

Detailed description and proper category is needed[edit]
