IRGC commander: Iran to mass-produce missile-launching speedboats this year

Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps, IRGC, Navy announced Iran's plans to mass-produce missile launching speedboats with the speed of 80 knots per hour.

 

Addressing a ceremony in Tehran on Tuesday Rear Admiral Ali Fadavi said "Based on the fifth five-year development plan, we should materialize our objective of mass-producing military speedboats with the speed of 80 knots per hour. This is a formidable speed in the world's navies."
"Therefore, we should try to mass-produce speedboats that can traverse at the speed of 80 knots (per hour) and are equipped with missiles with a range of 100km; the vessels no one can catch," he added.

Fadavi also said that the IRGC Navy is equipped with laboratories and pools in which the country's experts can design and test speedboats with the speed of 120 knots per hour.

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

Iranian officials have always stressed that the country's military and arms programs serve defensive purposes and should not be perceived as a threat to any other country.
