#2 Possibly, although probably on-loaded lots of Russian packaged Iraqi chemical-bio stuff too. The Russkis wouldn't want themselves directly involved with the transfer of this material, but will receive these little items (less a case or two for 'handling fees') from the Persians at some undisclosed 'friendly' location as payment for some former, current or future action(s) on Iran's behalf.

#3 In that case, expect more port calls in the near future. The Kharg supply ship is rather ideal for this sort of thing, and the destroyer frigate corvette is the escort.

#5 Surface delivery vessels would had been picked up by US-NATO SATWAR overhead unless one or both of the Iranian ships' hulls were modified to covertly receive Submarines directly underneath, in this case prolly Mini-Subs.
