Iran to launch home made destroyers

Rasht, north Iran, Oct 2 - Iran will launch three warships in the Persian Gulf and Caspian sea regions by 2005, commander of the Navy Rear Admiral Kouchaki said Sunday.

The navigation fleet comprises one destroyer and two missile launcher-boats, the high ranking military official said.

Iran's navy has taken a huge stride in building maritime defensive and agressive vessels, including ships and submarines.

"Iran expects to launch Mowj (meaning wave) destroyers in the Persian Gulf and two Sina I & II ships, all designed and constructed at home", Admiral Kouchaki said.
