The two vessels, named Martyr Bagheri and Martyr Shirazi, joined the IRGC Navy’s fleet during a ceremony held on Monday in the port city of Bandar Abbas, the capital of Hormuzgan province in southern Iran.

IRGC Navy Commander Commodore Alireza Tangsiri, who was present at the ceremony, said that the two vessels belong to Martyr Soleimani class of domestically-made advanced warships.

Weighing 600 tons and having 4 engines, the newly-added vessels can navigate at a speed of 32 nautical knots (about 60 km/h), he said.

The IRGC commander also explained that the surface-to-surface missiles placed at these vessels have a range of at least 700 km. The air defense system of the vessels has a range of 90 km, he added.

Tangsiri further said that Martyr Bagheri and Martyr Shirazi vessels can carry helicopters and three missile-launcher vessels, while they are capable of conducting close combat in the sea.
