The vessel, which has been made by the Defense Ministry’s naval industry department, was delivered during a ceremony attended by IRGC Navy Commander Rear Admiral Ali Fadavi.
This vessel, with a 33-meter length and a 8-meter width, is one of the most useful boats for transferring forces and providing backup services for the oil and gas sector’s offshore platforms, facilities and projects.
In recent years, Iran has made important breakthroughs in its defense sector and attained self-sufficiency in producing important military equipment and systems.
In January, Iran successfully test-fired surface-to-air mid-range Hawk missile,, and the Iranian Defense Ministry delivered new naval cruise missile systems to the Navy.
The systems, designed and manufactured by Iranian experts, are capable of spotting and destroying different targets at sea.
The Navy has successfully test-fired a range of powerful missiles mounted with laser technology, which display high precision and have a range of 45 km (28 miles) to 300 km (186 miles).
In 2010, Iran opened the production lines for the Seraj high-speed vessel and a new generation of the high-speed Zolfaghar. The Iranian vessel is capable of launching missiles, and sailing at a speed of 70 knots (82 mph).
Iran has repeatedly assured that its military might poses no threat to other countries, saying Tehran’s defense doctrine is based on deterrence only.
