By Elnur Baghishov - Trend:

The Iranian Navy will produce a heavy destroyer with the tonnage of between 5,000-7,000 tons, Iran's Navy Commander Rear Admiral Hossein Khanzadi told Tasnim News Agency, Trend reports.

Construction of the heavy destroyer has been put on the agenda under a project dubbed Negin [gemstone], Hossein Khanzadi said.

The navy commander stressed that the warship will be used in long-running naval missions without any limitations.

The Iranian Navy currently owns Mowj-class destroyers, which weigh around 1,300 tons. The class includes the homegrown Sahand destroyer and Ghadir submarine that joined the Navy's fleet in late 2018.
