Description: The Jamaran destroyer is a multipurpose vessel developed under the Mowj, Wave in English, project and designed to patrol the Persian Gulf and the Caspian Sea. Developed and built entirely in Iran, it is the most advanced warship owned so far by the Iranian Navy. The lead ship, called Jamaran, was launched on February 19, 2010, and is expected to be based and patrol the Persian Gulf. A sister vessel is under construction and will be based in the Caspian Sea. Despite being called destroyer the 94-meter long Jamaran class fits better into the corvette category. Weapons and electronic equipment may be supplied by either Russia, China or might be designed and produced domestically. Its primarily role is anti-submarine Warfare (ASW) and is equipped with torpedoes with defense capabilities against surface (YJ-83 Noor anti-ship missile) and air attacks.
The Jamaran destroyer was deployed by the Iranian Navy within the Velayat 89 military maneuvers in the Persian Gulf in May 2010. The ship was used to test fire anti-submarine torpedoes.
