Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari who was welcoming back the Navy’s 29th fleet to Bandar Abbas on Monday said "The 29th fleet returns home after 100 days of mission in free waters and the Gulf of Aden. Prior to this the 30th fleet was dispatched to the Gulf of Aden and Indian Ocean with the aim to defend Iran’s interests in international waters.”
"The Army’s 29th fleet escorted and guided 152 cargo ships and tankers along its mission course,” the Navy Commander stated.
He further said that in the near future a number of surface and underwater watercraft will join the Islamic Republic of Iran’s Navy.
Sayyari added "The operations to build the training destroyer Khalij Fars have started. The destroyer will enhance the Navy’s power, because it can both act within training programs and carry the duties of a destroyer.”
"Class Fateh submarines will be unveiled this year,” he also stated, adding "the class Jamaran destroyers in types 2 to 7 are also under production.”
