112 military boats have been delivered to the Islamic Republic’s naval forces during a ceremony held in the port city of Bandar Abbas. 


The missile speed boats have been designed and built by Iranian experts to increase the capability of the armed forces in Persian Gulf waters.

During the ceremony attended by the IRGC chief commander and several other senior officials including Defence Minister Amir Hatami on Thursday, various types of military boats called “Ashura”, “Tariq”, “Heydar” and “Zolfaqar” were delivered to the naval forces. 

They have been produced and optimised by experts in the knowledge-based companies of the defence ministry and the technical centres of the IRGC Navy.

These vessels enjoy very good hydro-dynamic capability, high speed, suitable maneuverability, and high offensive power and can have a great impact on improving the combat capability of the IRGC navy in the Persian Gulf and the Strait of Hormuz, a report by Fars News Agency said.

Speaking at this ceremony, IRGC Chief Commander Major General Hossein Salami said the Islamic Republic will not bow to the enemy and will not back down. 

“Iran is determined and will not bow to enemies. Development is the nature of our work. Defence is our logic in war, but it does not mean we will be passive against the enemy. Our operations and tactics are offensive, and we have shown it,” he said.
