The 1,420 ton Jamaran destroyer was launched on Friday.
Two days after its launch, Iran's domestically-manufactured Jamaran destroyer has completed its first mission in the waters of the Persian Gulf.


The indigenously-designed and developed guided missile destroyer fired against imaginary air and land targets on Sunday.

Earlier in the day, Jamaran began patrolling southern Persian Gulf waters before army commandos successfully landed on its deck.

Iran launched on Friday the 1,420 ton destroyer, equipped with a variety of anti-ship and surface-to-air missiles.

The Navy plans to add a second domestically manufactured destroyer to its fleet some time within the next two years.
