Chairman of the General Staff of the Armed Forces Major General Mohammad Baqeri said Iran’s indigenous speedboats have provided it with a remarkable deterrence capability against threats posed by the enemies.

Addressing a national forum on Iran’s speedboats on Thursday, Baqeri cited “high speed and agility”, “ease of use” and “high maneuverability” among the features of vessels, Press TV reported.  

“The operational capabilities of military equipment, including speedboats, should be updated according to the latest know-how and threats posed by the enemy,” he said.

“By the grace of God, the intelligence superiority as well as unique and undetectable capabilities of our naval defense forces will continue to keep the enemy in a passive and confused mode.”

Baqeri touched on the strategic importance of Iran’s long sea borders, particularly in the energy-rich Persian Gulf, calling them a determining factor in regional and global power equations given the fact that most enemy threats emanate from the sea.
