Army Commander: Iran’s Indigenous Vessels Ready for Naval Voyages


Iran’s Army Commander Major General Ataollah Salehi praised the Navy’s capabilities, saying two homegrown watercraft are ready for naval missions in places as far as the Atlantic Ocean.

Addressing high-ranking Navy commanders in Tehran on Saturday, Major General Salehi hailed the Navy as a strategic force with great capabilities, calling on the forces to work on long voyages in the Atlantic Ocean.

The top commander also noted that Tareq submarine and Khark warship have been optimized by the indigenous forces and are ready for military missions.

He further unveiled plans for achieving new products in the current Iranian year (which ends in March 2017) that will improve the country’s naval power.

Tareq is a super-heavy class of locally-manufactured submarines, and Khark is a homegrown warship employed in most of the Navy’s overseas missions.
