The naval fleet of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) has received a domestically-built ocean-going warship capable of carrying aircraft, drones and missile defense systems.

The heavyweight, multipurpose vessel, which has been designed for long sea journeys, joined the IRGC’s Navy during a ceremony on Thursday, with senior military and government officials in attendance.

The 400-ton warship, which is 150 meters long and 22 meters wide, can carry different types of aircraft, drones, helicopters and operational vessels as well as missile, air defense and radar systems.

It was named Shahid Roudaki warship after martyred IRGC Navy commander Abdollah Roudaki.
