“Dena has been manufactured by the Defense Ministry’s Marine Industries Organization and it will join the army’s naval fleet in the south soon,” Khanzadi told Fars News Agency.

He said the construction and naval tests on another home-made destroyer, Sahand, are also being completed, adding that it will be put into operation by the end of fall along with Dena.

“Fateh submarine which is the first mid-class submarine built by the Islamic Republic will also be unveiled soon,” he said.
