Local experts can now design and test military boats with speeds of up to 120 knots in a naval research laboratory with a test basin.

The Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) is testing military speed boats with the breakneck speed of 110 knots (203 km/h), a senior commander announced Tuesday.

IRGC Navy Commander Rear Admiral Ali Fadavi said in a scientific conference in Tehran that local experts at Imam Hussein (AS) University can now design and test military boats with speeds of up to 120 knots in a naval research laboratory with a test basin.

In the past, he said, Iran had to carry out tests on the speed boats abroad.

The commander also noted that according to plans, IRGC is going to manufacture new types of high speed boats with the velocity of 80 knots that are also armed with missiles with a range of 100 kilometers.

“That means the vessels that nobody can catch,” he explained.

Fadavi also said that the IRGC naval strategy in the Persian Gulf has made Americans admit to the vulnerability of their aircraft carriers in the face of the Iranian speed boats.
