Iran added an advanced new warship to its naval fleet in a ceremony in the southern port city of Bandar Abbas on Saturday, as shown in footage released by state television.
The Sahand destroyer is a domestically-built warship equipped with a close-in weapon system which is capable of destroying any approaching target from two kilometres away, according to the state.
It can also undertake long... Еще-distance missions and its main structure is capable of radar evasion.
The Sahand destroyer is the third and most advanced destroyer to be produced as part of the Iranian navy's Mowj (Wave) project.
