Indigenous Vessels Ready for Distant Missions

Army Commander Major General Ataollah Salehi announced two homegrown watercrafts are ready for naval missions to areas as far as the Atlantic Ocean. Addressing Navy commanders in Tehran on Saturday, Salehi hailed the navy as a strategic force with great capabilities, calling on the forces to work on long voyages in the Atlantic Ocean, Tasnim News Agency reported.  The top commander noted that Tareq submarine and Khark warship have been optimized by local engineers and are ready for military missions. He also said new products which are now under development will become operational in the current Iranian year (ends March 2017), adding that the deliveries will improve naval power. Tareq is a super-heavy class of domestically-manufactured submarines, and Khark is a homegrown warship that can be used in naval missions in the high seas.
