Iran to Equip Navy, IRGC with Jamaran-Class Warships

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iran's Navy and the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps naval forces are scheduled to be equipped with different versions of the home-made Jamaran-class warships, an IRGC commander announced.

IRGC Navy Commander Rear Admiral Ali Fadavi said on Thursday in Iran's northeastern holy city of Mashhad that the navy will not have any shortages in the field of warships after being equipped with the indigenous Jamaran-class vessels.

The IRGC navy commander also called on the country’s shipbuilding sector to play a more active role in order to make the country self-sufficient in this sphere.

The design and building of Jamaran has been among the greatest achievements of the Iranian Navy and the ship's launch marks a major technological leap for Iran's naval industries. 

The Jamaran class combines anti-submarine assets with other systems of weapons capable of dealing with surface and air threats as well.

The Iranian Navy launched its first domestically-built destroyer, Jamaran, in the waters of the Persian Gulf in February 2010.

In recent years, Iran has made great achievements in its defense sector and has attained self-sufficiency in producing essential military equipment and systems.

Tehran has always assured other nations that its military might poses no threat to the regional countries, saying that the Islamic Republic’s defense doctrine is entirely based on deterrence.
