TEHRAN (FNA)- The Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Navy was equipped with 2 new home-made vessels, one of which could be sent to far-distance missions with a need to refueling.

“Martyr Nazeri vessel which has been designed and built at Bushehr’s Martyr Mahallati institute, can be dispatched to the Red Sea and the Mediterranean without any need to any refueling,” Commander of the IRGC Navy’s First Zone Brigadier General Morteza Zareyee said on Monday.

He said that the home-made Nazeri vessel is capable of carrying 100 forces, and helicopters.

Saar was another Iranian vessel which joined the IRGC Navy in Bandar Abbas port in Persian Gulf waters on Wednesday.

Elaborating on Saar’s capabilities, General Zareyee said that “the vessel can be used for relief and rescue operations in the Persian Gulf and the Sea of Oman”.
