A new homegrown missile-launching warship, dubbed Konarak, formally joined Iranian Naval fleet in the Southeastern waters of the Sea of Oman on Monday.

Iran PressIran news: According to Fars News Agency, during a ceremony attended by Iranian navy commander rear admiral Hossein Khanzadi, the Iranian Navy’s fleet in the Sea of Oman took delivery of a made-in-Iran missile launcher at a naval base in Iran’s southeastern port city of Konarak.

The move is undertaken in a bid to strengthen and improve the combat capabilities of the naval force of the country, which in the recent years has increased its’ presence in high seas to secure naval routes and protect vessels against pirate attacks.

Iran has made big achievements in production of different weapons and military equipment.

In a related front, in August, Rear Admiral Khanzadi had announced that his forces would soon be supplied with a new modern home-made submarine which will surprise the enemies.

“Fateh submarine will join the Navy’s fleet by the end of this (Iranian) year,” Rear Admiral Khanzadi said.

He explained that different tests have been carried out on Fateh, adding, “Fateh is a Navy surprise for those who show us their claws and teeth.”

The Iranian navy has armed one of its destroyers with a new ‘Kamand’ anti-missile defense system, according to a top Iranian navy commander.

The United States claims that Iran’s missile tests and rocket launches violate UN Resolution 2231, which was adopted in July 2015 to endorse the 2015 nuclear agreement between Iran and the five permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany.

Iran has strongly rejected the US allegations that it has violated UN resolution. Tehran insists its missile tests and rocket launches are solely for defense purposes and not designed to carry nuclear warheads.
