The Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Navy has received 340 stealthy speedboats capable of carrying weapons.

The speedboats joined the IRGC Navy’s fleet in Iran’s southern port city of Bandar Abbas Monday on the occasion of the 42nd anniversary of the Islamic Revolution, Iranian-state owned PressTV reported.

The speedboats, co-produced by the IRGC Navy and the Defense Ministry, are capable of carrying various types of rockets to attack enemy targets. They will be used in missions in the Persian Gulf and the Sea of Oman, as well as in the Caspian Sea.

Speaking at the ceremony, Major General Baqeri said the speedboats as agile, maneuverable and equipped with radar-evading stealth technology.
