Iran Army Launches High Tech Missile Boat

Iran army launches high-tech missile boat

Iran's Navy has started employing the most advanced home-made missile boat named Sina in a bid to bolster its defense naval capabilities.

The Sina class warship officially set sail in the Caspian Sea in northern Iran in a ceremony attended by Iran's Defense Minister Ahmad Vahidi and commander of the Iranian navy Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari.

The vessel has been designed and built by experts of Iran's Defense Ministry, in cooperation with Iran's army.

It has more than a hundred radar, artillery, electronic and telecommunication systems and is also equipped with modern navigation systems.

Access to this advanced scientific and research technology carries Iran's message of peace and friendship for regional countries.

Meanwhile, a top Iranian army commander said Tuesday that the country would produce an advanced version of its Sejil missile.

"A new generation of optimized and advanced Sejil missiles will be produced," the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Air Force Commander Brigadier General Hossein Salami told state news agency IRNA.

"The solid-fuel long-range Sejil missile has been tested since last year and was delivered to the armed forces and the IRGC air forces in particular," he said.

"The two-stage Sejil has high accuracy and destructive capability and is amongst the most advanced missile systems that the armed forces have.”
